Our Road Pilots® receive exceptional training, compensation and respect because we know there are no shortcuts to safety and customer service excellence.
Our mission of providing a higher standard of service begins with our Road Pilots®. We believe they are the most important factor in providing superior service. At Green Transportation, they are not just drivers. The term “Road Pilots” was trademarked especially for them, out of respect for all they do.
We offer an excellent pay and benefits package, but pay and benefits are not enough to show our appreciation, so we have developed an environment of respect and trust for our Road Pilots®.
Ensuring happy employees requires us to actively think of ways to make their jobs and lives easier. Our Road Pilots® enjoy regular outbound routes to the extent possible as dictated by our freight. The outbound loads all depart from our service center in Holland, MI.
Our inbound loads are pre-arranged, which saves time and gives our Road Pilots® 1 ½ – 2 days of home time each week. They receive one week of time off every 8 weeks. Payroll is weekly with with the option of direct deposit.
Waste is not an option, and avoiding it is a major goal for everyone at Green. We believe that our Road Pilots® are the best in the industry, and we strive every day to ensure it remains true. If you would like to learn how you could become a Road Pilots®, contact us, and we’ll help find the best route for you!
Our Green Fleet
We expect the best from our employees and we reward them with top pay and the respect they deserve. Out of respect for what they do, we call our drivers “Road Pilots®”.
Green Transportation was founded with the mission of raising the standards in the transportation industry. Our West Coast service has 100% team availability for timeliness and DOT compliance. We encourage customers to check out our safety rating.
Our applicants are carefully screened during the hiring process. They must agree to abide by our “code of conduct” and participate in training on self-reliance, safety, customer service and freight handling.
Additionally, all applicants must agree to be present and assist in unloading trailers and to treat our customers with respect. They agree to depart at a predetermined time, to “chain up” when necessary and to travel “out-of-route” to avoid inclement weather. Finally, our well-trained Road Pilots® agree to be monitored on their shifting, idling and speed limit observance in our Green Fuel Savings Program.
