Status Transportation Corp is an owner operated based trucking company headquartered in Winter Garden, Florida. Our company was formed in 2009 and later this year (2019) we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary. Since our formation almost a decade ago we have been working hard to provide reliable and friendly transport services and this has helped us to remain relevant.

We began as a small business operating on the East Coast of the US offering dispatching services to truckers. Within no time after our formation, truckers noticed an entirely different approach to the trucking industry, and this opened a doorway for owner operator job opportunities. Eventually, our business grew to the point where we needed to relocate to a bigger facility in Winter Garden, Florida.

Status Trucking Today

Today, Status Transportation Corp offers dispatching services to a huge number of owner operators in the United States and we are proud of the fact that we continue to grow more year after year. Our Status Transportation Truck and Trailer Repair facility in Forest Park, GA is dedicated to providing truck maintenance services, trailer repair services and a wide range of services dedicated towards owners and drivers of trucks.

We are always looking to add independent contractors who own semi-trucks to our team. Owner operators can bring their own trailer, or we can provide them with a flatbed or dry-van if needed for a set weekly fee. Working with us is a great employment opportunity with steady pay, top market rates, and long distance hauls.

Reliable Operation Support

The trucking industry is not free of challenges. To ease the burden, Status Transportation Corp is a fully non-forced dispatch firm. Our dispatchers plan the stay of the owner operators on the road and also respect their home time. All members of our team are always prepared to offer support to all our owner operators when necessary.

Our professional dispatchers are always ready to answer any questions and deal with any concerns about making a business strategy, freight market trends, profitable routes and much more. We strongly believe that communication is very important for a successful business operation.

What Do Owner Operators Think?

When asked about their overall experience with Status Transportation Corporation, owner operators who have been working with us for several years always say that they are treated respectfully and well taken care of. Many reviews on social media sites about our company’s operations prove the level of satisfaction numerous drivers have experienced from working with us over the past 10 years.

While other firms seeking owner operators concentrate solely on growing their numbers, at Status Transportation Corporation we have set out to be different. We do not view owner operators as just any other account, but rather we focus on improving owner operator opportunities by providing our expertise and knowledge in the trucking industry and offering them access to the solid relationships we have built with our clients over the years. We always aim to form strategic partnerships with both the truckers and shippers.

Dispatching

Similar to any other workplace setting, at Status Transportation Corporation it is not unusual for truckers to form friendships with dispatchers and the rest of the team members. Everybody from our safety department, accounting team, dispatch team, and repair center are always willing to help. This sort of personalized services comes from knowing the mutual advantage of developing a solid business relationship.

All our owner operators get dedicated dispatchers that work with them to find the best paying loads in the current market. Owner operators can speak with their dispatchers or managers to create a custom business strategy to maximize income opportunities.

Our non-forced dispatch allows drivers to review loads before accepting them or reject them in case they do not have the required legal hours to finish the shipment. This method of dispatching empowers owner operators and is also flexible enough to allow them to take some time off. Since every freedom comes with certain responsibilities, we strongly urge our owner operators not to cancel loads once they have been accepted or attempt to alter an agreed rate after the loads have been accepted.

Payment Programs

Our payment programs are very straightforward. We have two percentage-based primary options: one applies to owners operators who own their trailers and the other applies to those who want to rent a trailer. When working with us, owner operators can either choose to drive within a region comprised of their home state and ten more states or they can go over the road to all the 48 states.

A majority of truckers are also really enthusiastic about the weekly payment schedule we provide. Moreover, we make it really convenient for them to have the cash flow they need via weekly direct deposits. It is important to mention that any loads delivered to their destination by Wednesday get paid on the same week if the owner operator turns in his/her paperwork on time.

Drivers receive a settlement describing their payments and deductions every week via email, and in case of any questions or concerns, they can contact our accounting department for further assistance.
