Southeast Regional Owner Operator Fleet

Home Time & Steady Freight

At Bennett, we know truckers love three things: family, country, and hauling good freight. Georgia has always been well-positioned for the trucking industry. Over 45 years ago, Bennett Motor Express was founded just off of Interstate 75 in McDonough, Georgia. We have always taken pride in providing great opportunities to owner-operators throughout our great nation. Our recent growth has prompted us to develop a fleet dedicated exclusively to the southeast region. If you're an owner-operator looking for a true business partner who shares your values of home time, stability and an honest day's pay, our new southeast regional fleet is designed just for you.
