We lease owner operators who have their own truck, with or without a trailer, and wish to run totally independent, even though they are running under our authority. You find your own loads and negotiate your own rates. That means you decide where you're going, how much money you're going for and how long you're going to be gone. You are in complete control. If you have the initiative and skills to run your own business, we are the right company for you!

Once you have agreed on a load, you will let your broker know that you are leased with MAG Carriers, LLC and they will send us the rate confirmation directly. They will fax or email their rate confirmation sheet to our office, we will run a credit check on them and go over the rate sheet with you to be sure it includes all of the information that you agreed upon, such as mileage, rate, weight, commodity, destination and special instructions. After we confirm with you that the rate sheet is accurate, we will sign and fax it back to your broker to let them know that you are ready to pull the load. If the rate sheet is not exactly as you and your broker discussed, it is strongly recommended that you contact the broker and request that they revise the sheet and re-submit it.

MAKE SURE YOUR LOAD IS PAYING ENOUGH FOR YOU TO MAKE MONEY...
Plan out your route before your trip begins; consider when and where you will stop for breaks and to purchase fuel. Also, calculate the estimated fuel cost, toll roads, pallet exchange, special permits, escort fees and lumper fees. Many of these are definitely negotiable! The ability to negotiate is essential in order to ensure you are profitable.
If the travel distance or weight is listed, this is only an ESTIMATION. It is your responsibility to calculate the actual mileage for the trip; it is also your responsibility to allow yourself room for variance regarding the weight. For example, if the load is estimated at 40,000 pounds, you should plan that it may be anywhere between 38,500-41,500 pounds.
Your paperwork MUST arrive at our office by 8am each Tuesday in order for you to be paid Friday, 3 days later. If your paperwork arrives here later than 8am Tuesday, you will be paid for those loads on the following Friday, 10 days later. The only exception to this rule is if we are able to track your package and confirm that it should have arrived to our office on time.
