    I have been working at Swift Transportation as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The program is a legit , well researched 3 year deal in which you can purchase the truck outright or go into another lease .
    Swift basically sets you up for success . They give you the tools to succeed as with they share their buying power with you , the contractor . ( o/o ) This helps a lot as we all at times know that starting a business sometimes tends to be a bit tough and swift let's you get po numbers at Loves , TA, and any where in which they have an account at also even at KW dealerships or Freightliner, which are the 2 main trucks they lease out to own .
    The freight base is strong as well as the freight lanes in almost every state .
    We have a good support team and that is important as a owner op.
    The truck payment starts at 723 a week and then after 6 months it goes down to 580 a week after the performance bond is paid which is 2300. But you can avoid this buy having the 2300 as a down payment and have a 580 a week truck payment . Our expenses are 956 a week before we start seeing revenue .The company in a whole is a great company to work for literally providing best in class in all aspects .We are treated as business partners and we are respected as that .

    Cons

    None I can think of . Just remember as a business owner there will be rough moments , just hang on because that is a good learning experience and that's how you grow as a entrepreneur.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up being Best In Class , Thank You .

    Pros

    This is a good Company for those new to the industry. They have a large volume of freight. Mostly new equipment, awesome accommodations for drivers.

    Cons

    Only problem is not enough trailers, need more home time for drivers, also vacation time, one truck wash every 6 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    We need an open door policy for drivers, driver leaders and fleet leaders. Not enough communication for us out here.
