    I have decided to return to OTR after driving petroleum tankers out of Portland, OR for almost a year. Previous to that I drove for May Trucking pulling reefers for around 1.5 yrs. I'm in my third year of professional driving, with a perfect 10+ year driving record, clean CSA score, all endorsements, and TWIC card. I have several standing offers from the bigger companies, including May, but I wish to explore my options. Looking to perhaps find a small company that will provide me with good equipment, good pay, and will allow me to do my job without the micromanagement that has become the norm within the larger carriers.

    I have a few (reasonable) requirements, fairly standard in nature. First, your company must have a clean CSA score, I will not subject myself to unnecessary scrutiny, though I will always work to be prepared for an inspection at any moment. Second, as a non-smoker I require a clean, never smoked-in newer truck, preferably with an APU and refrigerator. Bonus points for a Cascadia or Volvo 780 with a 13 speed. I'm willing to run just about any type of freight to just about any location, with very few exceptions: livestock, chemicals/petroleum, and anything else with exposure to toxic vapors and or extreme odors/funk. I am interested in specialized/heavy haul/flatbed, and do have some experience with that as a youth rolling with my Dad. I prefer 48 state irregular, as I enjoy seeing new things and would like to take my family along as well.

    As for pay and benefits, certain standards apply, though I am open to offers and negotiation. I'll leave this for later discussion. What I'm really looking for is a place I can become more of a business partner rather than just an employee, with all of the potential opportunity that entails. I know that I will be a valuable asset to your operation, and if you treat me as such, you'll gain my appreciation and loyalty to both our benefit.

    Please feel free to PM me for further contact details, and we can begin discussing a possible business relationship.

    Thank you for your time.
