Flatbed Trucking With Bennett Motor Express
Experienced flatbedders usually come to Bennett as their second or third driving job. Frequently they stay for the rest of their career, racking up millions of miles and building lifelong friendships. General freight provides opportunities for you to be profitable with a percentage pay program that helps drivers maximize their revenue. As line haul revenue increases, so does your pay (based on 97% of line haul). Fuel surcharges and accessorial charges such as tarping, dunnage detention, and tolls are paid to the contractor at 100%.
Your trailer axle configuration determines the percent (10-12%) that your trailer makes, or you can choose to use a Bennett company trailer. Curtain-side trailers are also valuable for moving certain commodities.

Step Deck (drop deck) Trucking With Bennett Motor Express
Step deck trailers are the workhorse of the Bennett fleet. Owner operators who bring a step deck have the added flexibility of pulling taller freight including heavy machinery and wheeled equipment. This configuration gives drivers and customers more flexibility in securing the right equipment for their shipment. In concert with our in-house permit department, you have the ability to pull oversized freight as well.
