Owner operators: achieve success on your terms

American history is filled with successful business owners who were determined to make it on their own:  Henry Ford, Sam Walton, John Deere, Leo Fender.  In 1934 Earl Oren founded Dart Transit Company with the same spirit of independence and self-reliance, and he made his mark on the transportation industry on his own terms.

Today, owner operators at Dart are among the most successful small business owners in the trucking industry.  Nine times the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) has named Dart owner operators "Independent Contractor of the Year", and in 2010, the TCA named Dart a "Best Fleet to Drive For" and "Best Fleet for Owner Operators".

Dart’s mission is the same today as it was in 1934:  provide shippers with the highest quality service, and provide owner operators with the opportunity to achieve the American dream of independence and business ownership.

  • Work hard
