Owner Operators

At Excargo, our owner operators are at the core of our success. They have some of the best safety scores attainable. Their professionalism, pride in their trucks, and customer service stands out.

Customers frequently compliment our drivers as in this quote from a global retailer:

“I would like to mention how great the drivers are about providing what is needed at the time of check-in at our yard.”

We develop logistic solutions to meet our customers’ needs.

As one of our Excargo drivers put it:

“From drivers to management.  Our safety, well being, family, and customer service is what’s important to this company and it is, in my experience, what makes this a great company to work for.  And because of those things, I feel this company will be successful for far more than it already is.”
