Founded in 2004 in Memphis, Armstrong Transportation is based in Memphis TN and currently operates around 80 tractors and hundreds of dry-van trailers. We continue to do a great job for our customers, so we have the opportunity to add new customer business to our growing network. We need quality company drivers and owner-operators to join our regional team to meet growing customer demand. If you are a seasoned driver looking for weekly home time, consistent top miles and the right place to call home, there is no better time to take advantage of the opportunities at Armstrong Transportation.
Our regional drivers enjoy 2,300 to 3,300 miles per week, all while being home every weekend. Our network is consistent, repeat customer freight and 85% drop-and-hook. Our most common runs out of Memphis are 400 to 550 miles going to Dallas, Indiana, Illinois and South Louisiana. Drivers who have a goal to maximize miles regularly achieve 2,500 to 3,000 miles or more per week. Call us today to find out more.
Armstrong has been a proud SmartWay Transport Partner for many years. We will continue to strive to operate in a manner that minimizes our impact on the environment.
Every driver in our regional fleet has been home every weekend for years. Even more, if a driver needs to be home during the week for a family event, doctor's appointment or any other reason, we make sure the driver is home when needed all while still maximizing the driver's miles and income for the week.
If we had our way, every load in our network would be a preloaded pickup and a drop delivery. Right now, about 85% of our runs are drop and hook. We will continue to work with our customers to add as many drop & hook loads as possible.
We know every driver has a few favorite runs. We'll take the time to learn how you like to run and do our best to keep you on your preferred routes as often as possible.
We understand that finding safe overnight parking can be a challenge. That's why we have many shippers and receivers in our network that allow overnight parking at their facility. In fact, parking availability is one of the first questions we ask a potential new customer.
When possible, we will plan you on multiple trips at one time, so you know where and when you're picking up next before you start a trip. This extra planning allows drivers to plan their trip better and get more miles by connecting two trips together. We aren't able to do a multi-trip plan for every driver every time, but we do it as often as possible.
Every driver is assigned to a specific tractor. We offer Freightliner and International tractors with a mix of manual and automatic transmissions. We add new equipment every year and we'll do everything we can to put you in a truck that matches your preferences.
Armstrong Transportation has some of the top safety scores around...and we plan to keep it that way. From operating safely to preventing accidents and injuries, our entire company remains focused on the safety of our team and the motoring public that we proudly serve.
While we pride ourselves on getting all our drivers home every weekend, we do have weekend freight as well. Drivers use the weekend freight to pick up some extra miles or to make up the miles missed because of a day off during the normal week. Much of the weekend freight is day-trips within 225 miles of Memphis, Little Rock and other areas of our network.
We do our best to make every day perfect for our drivers, but as you know, trucking isn't always perfect. Things like canceled loads, delays at customers and breakdowns are going to happen. When they do, every member of the Armstrong team will be working hard to resolve problems and correct issues as quickly as possible. Fortunately at Armstrong, these things don't happen often, but when they do, Armstrong is going to step up every time with detention pay, breakdown pay and other solutions to make things right for our valuable drivers.
