About Us

Our Mission is to Help Truck Drivers Succeed in their Professional Careers

We want to provide you with accurate and easy-to-understand info. We know how confusing the industry can be when you have a dozen different carriers each promising you the moon. We’re going to help you sift through all of the bullshit. 

– R.S. Reeves

Honest carriers deserve proper recognition.  Some carriers are upfront, truthful, and care about their fleets. As for others, well, it’s a common assessment in the industry that the drivers are just numbers and the carriers don’t care about you. We’re determined to collect and present accurate data on carriers so you can make a decision based off of facts and not bullshit promises.


Transportation Professionals

Seriously. We’re a small outfit of drivers, former drivers, and transportation professionals that realized nothing existed to help match drivers with carriers that didn’t favor the carrier. 

We’re here to look out for the driver first. We need your help to make this work!

What we do

Help You Make Decisions

We curse a lot. If you aren’t a fan of that, you might be suited somewhere else. At the end of the day our goal isn’t to coddle you, it’s to make sure you have the info you need to make the right decisions about your career. 

How we create content

Extensive Research

All content on this site has been planned and edited by our editor-in-chief to ensure that we meet the highest quality standards. We do use freelance writers to help put articles together but nothing is published on this site without the editor-in-chief’s approval. This is to ensure all information we publish is accurate and so that you can trust it when making decisions.

As much as possible we try to get our hands on any items we recommend in our blog posts to get real-life experience with them but it is not always possible so we also rely on extensive online feedback from real customers. 

We put a lot of time and effort into each carrier review that we perform and do our best to ensure it stays up-to-date and fair. All information is gleaned from the carrier’s public website, publicly accessible documentation provided by that carrier,  and interviews with carrier employees (both driving and non-driving personnel). 

We realize that the information we are provided may not always be truthful or accurate.  This applies to information provided to us by drivers as well as internal office staff (we’re looking at you recruiters). For this reason, we will exhaust all means available to verify information provided by our sources in keeping with our high standards of credibility.

In no way, shape or form, shall we ever let our reviews of carriers be influenced by money, gifts, or other forms of compensation. We will permit carriers to advertise for us on our site but we will ensure that these advertisements are distinctly identifiable from our own personal recommendations and reviews. 

The bottom line is this: carriers can’t buy their ratings here, they earn them.
