New Transport Plates are in!

New Indiana Transport Plates are in for 2016! Please see Teresa DURING REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS to exchange your plates out as soon as convenient! Please don't wait until the last minute and make it difficult to keep running.


The process is simple; please just bring your old plates and registration in during regular business hours sometime before the end of September, and Teresa or Laurie will get a new set issued to you. If you do not have your new plates before the end of September, you will, unfortunately, be placed in lock until you can make it in to bring your old plates.

Thanks for helping make this a smooth process. Drive safe!

Make More Money Running As A Team!

At other companies, transport drivers of the motorized and towable variety each suffer from a few issues. For the pickup truck owner/operator, it is the case of deadheading all the way back home or to the terminal more often as not. For the motorized driver, it is how to get home after a delivery.

At Synergy, by trying to team our drivers, both of these drivers stand to make more money! Here's how...

Lets look at Mary Motorized taking a box truck and Pete Pickup pulling a triple axle trailer to Denver....

Goshen, IN to Denver, CO - Running Separately
Mary Motorized Pete Pickup
Pay 1109 miles $942.65 Pay  1109 Miles $1,474.97
Costs Fuel $225.07 Costs Fuel Out $266.16
  Trip Home $215.50   Fuel Back $210.71
        Wear & Tear $221.80
Net Pay Run Profit $502.08 Net Pay Run Profit $776.30
 
Now, let's team these two up and see how much more they can make...
 
Goshen, IN to Denver, CO - Running Together
Mary Motorized Pete Pickup
Pay 1109 miles $942.65 Pay  1109 Miles $1,474.97
Costs Fuel $225.07 Costs Fuel Out $266.16
  Trip Home $105.36   Fuel Back $105.35
        Wear & Tear $221.80
Net Pay Run Profit $612.22 Net Pay Run Profit $881.66
 With Mary helping pay the fuel costs coming home for a ride with Pete, rather than riding the Greyhound, she earns over $110 more! And Pete, with a person coming home and splitting costs, makes an additional $115! By working together, the Synergistic effect kicks in, and these drivers combined earn over $225
 
If you are interested in making far more money by teaming with another driver, talk to your dispatcher about teaming up! If you're an owner/operator, and know someone who might make a good driver for us, let recruiting know, and we will get to work signing on your teammate!

Note that truck expenses listed above are estimated and can vary depending on the truck and how the driver operates and maintains it.
