About Us

The Dart Network is there to provide you with the same quality service we’ve been providing since 1934. Our wide variety of transportation and logistics solutions allow us to provide customers with tailored strategies to make sure your specific supply chain needs are met and exceeded.

While Dart Transit Company is one of the largest and most innovative truckload van carriers in the nation, we’re small enough to focus on your success. We’ve built an outstanding network of professional drivers, because we believe drivers should be happy and successful. That’s why Dart has one of the lowest turnover rates in the trucking industry.

For over 80 years, Dart has been, and remains, a safe, innovative, family-owned business.  We've designed trailers with more capacity, we've reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and we've invested in safety technology in order to help drivers be safe and successful.  And it’s all thanks to our commitment to integrity and innovation.

Dart Transit has a reputation as America’s top carrier for independent contractors. You can contract with Dart with confidence, knowing that it is a company that operates with integrity and professionalism. The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and Carriers Edge identified carriers with the strongest over-all programs for drivers and owner operators, and ranked Dart among the best carriers for professional drivers. Dart topped the field in 2010 as the Best Fleet for Owner Operators, and won “Best Fleets to Drive For” in 2009, 2010 and again in 2011.

According to the TCA, the strength of Dart’s contractor support programs encourages owner operator success – something we have known for years.

It starts with offering contract choices that allow you to pick an owner operator driving option that meets your individual needs.

  • Over-the-Road -- for biggest choice of loads and strong miles

  • Northern Region -- in America’s Heartland

  • Super South Region -- operating between Texas and the Atlantic seaboard

  • Dedicated – pre-planned loads for very high productivity

  • Short Haul in 16 metro areas. Many offer home every night.

Financial advantages include same-day settlements (settle on your schedule, not ours), very competitive mileage and percentage pay rates and big savings through participating vendors. Savings include rich fuel discounts from every major truck stop chain, the trucking industry’s best truck lease purchase program, discounts on tires and truck repairs, a full range of insurance offerings, plus access to a SEP-IRA retirement program.

Dart has been a great place for independent contractors since 1934 because we’ve designed our company to meet their business needs. Whether you’ve been an owner operator for years or are hoping to become one now, Dart is a great place for you.
