        • We use Keep Truckin’ ELDs which are very user friendly for the driver and forward facing dash cameras to protect the driver from accident liability.   
      • Midwest runs: We live in the friendliest part of the country, and we celebrate that our driver’s quality of life is improved by the “Midwest-Nice” mentality that they encounter on the road. 
      • Routes: Most freight runs are within a 500 mile radius of our homebase in Evansville, Indiana
      • Dispatch: Part of the primary working relationship every driver has with their company is their interactions with their Dispatcher. At Smith, we work hard to have pro-driver dispatchers that prioritize the needs and preferences of all our drivers.
      • Load Type: We haul food grade products, dry food goods, plastics, and metal alloys.
      • Hometime: You can expect to be home every weekend and most of our drivers get back for 1-2 days during the week as well. Your family is a priority to you, which makes your time with them a priority for us. 
      • ELD’s: Electronic logs can be a bother, but we’ve tried to do away with the hardest parts by choosing technology that’s up to date and user friendly.
      • Loading & Unloading: We do not subscribe to unpaid loading or unloading! We respect your time and we expect you to get paid for it– If a driver is requested to load/unload or if a lumper must be hired, the driver must get pre-approval through dispatch. The approval must be noted on the original bill of lading. Once the pre-approved request is received for a driver to load and/or unload the freight he/she is hauling; the driver can perform the service and receive the fee that appears on our invoice to the customer.
