Does Steelman have a driving school or finishing program?
Not currently but we are currently researching the possibility of a Finishing Program in 2015.
How often do drivers get home?
Our goal is to get drivers home every 10 to 14 days as that generally works best in keeping customer freight needs met while making the truck profitable for you.
How long does it take to pay off a Lease/Purchase truck?
Generally about 7 years but that can vary slightly.
I own my truck and trailer, can I lease both of them onto Steelman?
Yes, you have the option to sign on both as long as they meet our requirements.
Do I have to live in Springfield, MO to drive for Steelman?
No, not if you are interested in running with us as an Independent Contractor; please refer to the “Driver Requirements” page for acceptable areas.
However, if you wish to be a company driver you must live within a 100-miles of Springfield.
Am I competing with your brokerage for freight?
No, the company fleet has a specific customer base and so does the Brokerage Division. On occasion the two will work together on a load but the customers are kept in respect to the division.
