Tandem Transport Corp.

By: Bubbajunk.com

Tandem Transport Corporation is a Regional air ride flatbed carrier based in Michigan City, IN and the company and its predecessors have provided quality carriage for shippers since 1945. Its operations encompass 48 states and Canada with special focus on freight east of the Mississippi, with freight patterns that allow OTR employees to spend most weekends at home with their families where they get emotionally recharged.

The current size of the fleet of tractors includes 241 Freightliner Conventionals and 10 Volvo Conventionals and in the trailerÂâ€Ã¢„¢s section, there are 246 East 48' Aluminum air ride with Tandem Axles, 4 East 48' Aluminum air ride with Quad Axles, 10 Benson 48Ââ€Ã¢„¢ Aluminum, 6 East 48' Aluminum air ride with 6 Axles and 1 Thru-way 50' Steel with an 8 Axle. Tandem ensures safe and efficient operation as it follows a strict maintenance schedule for all vehicles and related equipment. This policy can be judged by the fact that in the late fleet of tractors, there are 21 2006 models, 54 2005 models, 40 2004 models, 41 2003 models, 80 2002 models and 4 1998 models- which could be considered old.

The fleet is continuously cycled, utilizing long-term contractual agreements with quality vendors too from whom Tandem leases equipment that is comprised of tandem, spread and multi-axle trailers, after thorough screening to meet the companyÂâ€Ã¢„¢s high standards.

Tandem began as a one terminal operation in St. Louis, MI and has expanded to a six terminal operation with facilities in Gaylord, MI, Michigan City, IN (Corporate Office), Chattanooga, TN, Vanlue, OH and Columbus, OH, of which two have a maintenance facility. Beginning as a Michigan carrier, Tandem has grown considerably and now covers most of the Midwest, South and some Eastern states. Benefits:

In Tandem, experienced drivers can earn over $50,000 per year with benefits with the advantage of comprehensive insurance coverage and incentive programs that reward drivers beyond those of any other company. Drivers with 1-year verifiable OTR (over the road) experience get paid $100 per holiday with no waiting period while those with less than one year of OTR experience will receive holiday pay after being employed for six months. With most drivers needing to be away for only four weekends a year, a trucking job with Tandem Transport seems the way a lot of drivers would like their van and life to go!
