Owner Operators welcome
Schilli Specialized of Texas has opportunities for professional owner-operators. We welcome independent contractors with a strong business sense and a desire to succeed. We utilize the national load finding capabilities and customer base of Schilli Transportation Services and Schilli Specialized of Texas. Our base of customers includes 'Fortune 500' type shippers that understand and respect the business side of the transportation industry.
Our Owner Operators are most successful when they utilize our drop trailer pools at various customers. At these customers, your loads are primarily 'drop and hook' thus reducing or eliminating the non-revenue producing waiting time. In addition, by utilizing the trailer pool program, our Owner Operators do not have the initial investment in tarps and equipment.
We also offer an innovative fuel surcharge program. The program compensates a 'per mile' fsc for all dispatched miles, loaded and empty, even if a particular load is not paying a fuel surcharge. This program allows you to preplan your estimated fuel surcharge compensation without worrying about individual shippers or loads.
