Road Pilot Difference

THE ROAD PILOT® DIFFERENCE

Our Road Pilots receive exceptional training, compensation, benefits 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 Pilot®” 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.

To ensure we have a satisfied workforce, we actively think of ways to make their careers more rewarding.  Our Road Pilots enjoy regular outbound routes to the extent possible as dictated by our freight.  Our outbound loads all depart from our service center in Holland, MI.  They are rewarded based upon their performance with safety, fuel consumption, on-time deliveries and more.

Our inbound loads are pre-arranged, which saves time and gives our Road Pilots 1 – 2 days of home time each week.  They are asked to run 48 weeks annually. Payroll is weekly with the option of direct deposit.

Errors are not an option, and avoiding them 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 Pilot®, contact us, and we’ll help find the best route for you!

Our applicants are carefully screened during the hiring process. They must agree to abide by our “code of conduct” and participate in training for 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 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.
