While our driving force is out on the front-line moving freight, our non-driving force is hard at work supporting them. Pride Transport’s office and maintenance team members are crucial to the success of our company.
Keeping hundreds of tractors and trailers rolling is no small task. Pride Transport’s office and maintenance teams work in fast-paced, high energy environments. Soliciting freight, planning trucks, assisting drivers, managing safety and maintaining equipment are just a few of the critical support roles that keep our fleet moving.
There are many words we can use to describe Pride Transport’s company values. We’ve narrowed it down to the five most important:
From our drivers to our mechanics, there is nothing more important than making sure our employees are safe. We know the great responsibility we have in hiring the best of the best to operate, maintain and support our fleet.
Each person has a responsibility to be knowledgeable in their respective positions. There’s more to just driving a truck than most people understand. Additionally, those that support our drivers are expected to know their jobs inside and out in order to support our fleet.
Trucking is unique in that most of our employees are out on the road for weeks on end, with expensive equipment and freight. A traveling billboard so to speak. We rely on those individuals to always do the right thing and represent our company in a professional manner.
Trucking is a lifestyle, not a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job. It requires a lot of work from our drivers to our non-drivers. We never close. We’re open 24/7. If our drivers are out on the road all day and all hours, we ensure they will the resources and support when it’s needed.
This is what differentiates us from others. Our expectation is that we have a good working environment, one where people want to come to work. Good old fashioned being nice and polite to each other is what has preserved our culture over the last 42 years. Trucking is a rough environment, so we expect that any interaction that is had between company employees, is respectful. We want people to feel like they are at home.
