CDLLIFE was able to connect with Butler Transport in order to find out more about who they are.  We asked Butler a series of questions to help introduce themselves to prospective drivers who may never of heard of them. Here are the questions we asked and what Butler Transport had to say.

Q:

In a paragraph or two, take some time and tell our readers a little bit about your company. In other words, who are you and what do you do?

For over 25 years now, Butler Transport’s slogan “Partners In Excellence” has been more than just a motto; it’s been the cornerstone of our success. Our success has been built upon the philosophy that the company’s success can only be measured by the success of its employees. This philosophy truly sets us apart in the industry and is why we’re known as the company committed to the success of our Drivers. In fact, company founder and President, George Butler, recently stated, “I don’t know how the other guys do it, but treating our Drivers as partners and measuring their success is how I’ve always measured the success of my company.”

Q:

In your mind, what makes your company unique from all of the other trucking companies that exist?

Founded in 1988, Butler Transport was built upon a spirit of innovation which continues to thrive as an integral part of the company’s culture. In fact, we’ve become well known in the industry as a transportation provider who consistently delivers on its promises and drives value to our customer’s bottom-line. We believe you’ll be hard pressed to find a team of transportation professionals as attentive, responsible and knowledgeable as you will at Butler Transport.

Q:

With there being so much competition between trucking companies for experienced drivers why should a prospective driver consider working for your company as opposed to all of the other trucking companies that are looking to hire drivers?

At Butler Transport we believe our Drivers are truly our most valuable asset. We realize that without our team of Professional Drivers, we would not be able to offer the excellent level of customer service that has allowed us to grow and prosper throughout the years.

We remain committed to providing each and every Driver the options and opportunities to ensure they are each successful. Company Solo and Team Drivers will find we offer the consistency and respect they’re looking for in our OTR, Dedicated and Regional fleets. Owner-Operators will realize the difference it makes to have a true “partner” providing support every mile and for those Drivers looking to transition into owning their own truck, they’ll find integrity in our Lease-Purchase plan.

To continue to meet the growing demand for our service, we are currently seeking out the “Best Of The Best” to join our team. If you’re looking for a positive, supportive and conscientious work environment, look no further – you’ve come to the right place.
