We guarantee dedicated lines and here are some dedicated runs we operate right now.
Let us be honest, about 80% of US truck drivers like the idea of dedicated lanes. But it’s important to make a distinction between dedicated truck drivers and regional truck drivers.
Advantages to being a dedicated truck driver are mostly to do with security in terms of mileage and schedule. And you get to be a part of a company’s success. You get to know the people you are working with because you see them every day and you can build up relationships.
We, at JDM Expedite, are looking for drivers who can in, no time really, take up some of our dedicated runs. With over 80,000 customers on the books, there are a few of these.
We operate trucks from three different
manufacturers: Peterbilt, Freightliner and
And we’d like to introduce them to you.
Drivers look for a few things from their trucks:
Dedicated lanes typically require less daily planning. The driver will have more time to focus on other priorities. This is a great position for drivers who wants to take the next level of driving. Having a dedicated lane means deep knowledge of the route, stable income, and consistent business.
Knowledge of the route
If a brand-new truck is available, then the answer is yes. It’s about timing, I guess. We can’t promise that a truck with ZERO miles will be available at the time of you joining us. We promise you a truck that’s less than three years old and regularly maintained by our first-class maintenance staff in our own shop located at our terminal in Alsip, IL. As an added bonus, we promise you a recovery truck in an event that your truck breaks down. Let’s be honest, even on new trucks you sometimes get a “check engine” light come on after just 50,000 miles.
According to our Company Policy, all our trucks are limited to a maximum of 69 mph.
As a company, we operate on a First Come First Served basis. We are able to place a hold on one of our units for you for a period of 48 hours in special circumstances. Nevertheless, all our trucks are regularly maintained and there is no need to think that one is better than the other. It’s all about personal preference.
Yes. Every rented truck includes a cents per mile charge which is billed monthly. Also, the regular service of the truck is charged at a much lower rate. This includes the regular wear and tear of tires and brakes but doesn’t include any physical damage to the units.
We use Pilot and Flying J for fueling up. However, in case you ever run out of gas, we allow a 50-gallon emergency fill-up at any fuel stop.
Yes. Please contact our Recruiting Department on 708 942 4585 ext. 4
