Laid back atmosphere with good, well maintained equipment
Very inconsistent miles and expensive benefits

Lipsey Trucking is a small company and sister company to Lipsey Logistics. The tractors are all 2015 and newer on a national lease through Ryder. As such, all maintenance is done through Ryder. Ryder's road service is great. They really strive to ensure you are down less than 2 hours. The trailers are leased through a variety of companies with repairs through Fleet Net. The trailer condition is a gamble. You might get a good, newer trailer or an older wore out trailer. Lipsey strives to get you home every weekend unless you want to work, then you have to remind them to keep you out. Pay starts at .38/mile with .32 with .06 per diem. Pay runs from Monday midnight to Monday midnight, paid the next Friday. Pay runs a week behind. All paper work is scanned through TransFlo. You can use the mobile app. Miles varies from 1,200 - 2,900 week. You never know what you will run unless your on a dedicated run. Even then with the company being under 70 trucks, at times you are pulled of your normal run to cover another run. The people in the office are great. Very laid back and accommodating. With so few people they close the office at 1700 with a rotating on call list and you never know who's on call. Benefits for a family of 4 run over $900 a month.
