Granger, IA – Barr-Nunn Transportation is a widely acclaimed provider of highest quality transportation and logistics services. Since their inception in 1982, they have been the industry leader in pay packages and have grown to a fleet of nearly 675 tractors, 1,800 trailers and over 500 customers nationwide. Their large customer base and ability to efficiently meet the needs of shippers across the country have made them not just a stable operation, but one that is here for the long haul.
It is also an organization that is poised for strategic growth. Barr-Nunn, strives for Owner Operators and Company Drivers to be happy. The Company is constantly working to come up with new ways to prove to drivers how much it values them.
Barr-Nunn believes that trucking and the military go hand-in-hand. With military drivers having strict regimens of traveling, discipline, timeliness, structure and professionalism, the cross-over into life as a civilian is made into an easy one as the skills required to drive over the road are the same. How does the company know this so well? The owner, Bob Sturgeon, and his son are both prior USMC, and proudly support those making the transition out of the military.
The Veterans Alliance Program will give veterans who have 18 months of military tractor trailer experience and at least 6 months of commercial over the road, tractor trailer experience credit up to 1 year base pay rate of $.40 cpm on Practical Mile Pay. The program includes a $.02/per mile 401(k) program, fastest pay raises in the industry, appreciation bonuses, guaranteed hometime and so much more.
The program expectations will be for qualified veterans to attend orientation at either of the main terminals in Granger, IA or Washington Court House, OH, under our driver refresher program. The driver refresher program consists of regular orientation plus 3-5 days with trainer. Drivers will receive $70 a day while training. The sign on bonus of $1,000 will be paid when the driver graduates orientation, completes training period and is released as a solo driver.
