Owner Operators must share in loss of pay or a deduction in pay of some sort if being late was controllable. Revenue Miles – Land Transport Inc. bills its customers and pays its Owner Operators for loaded miles calculated by using the PC Miler software from pickup point to delivery point. Back hauls – Anytime that an Owner Operator delivers outside of the current service area, Land Transport Inc. will DEDICATE itself in securing the Owner Operators a back haul into or closer to our service area. If a back haul is secured, the owner Operator is offered the run at a negotiated rate. Back hauls can include LTL shipments to cover driver fuel while giving the driver some profit. Land Transport Inc. is dedicated in doing whatever it takes to keep their drivers running. And we like for you to run.

G.V.W. that are operated by a team at all times prove to be the most successful at Land Transport Inc. due to their ability to be available for immediate dispatch at all times. Fingerprinting Freight – Most of our freight will be shipper load/and consignee unload. There are times, however, when our customers can request that the Owner Operator assist in loading, unloading or breaking down skids. This doesn’t happen very often, however, in cases that it does, the Owner Operator may be compensated for assistance. We also bill for inside delivery to a residence or non-dock facility (office building). Four Call System – Drivers must adhere to 4 phone calls to LTI when making a delivery. Check calls will be done when required while during transit. • First call is when you arrive on site for a delivery or pick up of freight with current time. • Second call will be after you make a pick up, (information needed during this call will be the pieces and weight of the shipment and the shipper/bill of lading number and time out. • Third call will be made when you arrive on the consignee’s location with the current time. • Fourth call will be when you have made your drop, (information needed during this call will be P.O.D. (proof of delivery / the signature of the person who signed for the freight and time out.) Communications – Drivers will be required to have a nationwide pager and a nationwide cellular phone for immediate check calls. Also when drivers run into problems or delays in transit, drivers are required to call LTI immediately, NOT THE CUSTOMER. Desire – Drivers are required to maintain poise when at a customer’s facility. In no way is it allowed to create anxiety in front of a customer. NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE.
