OWNER OPERATORS

OUR STORY

Circle Transportation was co-founded in 2011 as an asset carrier by industry experts Eric Fortmeyer and Chad Buchanan. This was done to formally separate our truckline from our brokerage operations to allow us to better serve the needs of our Owner Operators. Our People and our owner operators are our greatest asset, and we wouldn't be where we are today without continuous investment in talented individuals.

We're Serious About Safety

At Circle, the safety of our drivers always comes first. We’re committed to keeping you protected while you’re on the road, with ongoing training designed to make sure every trip is a smooth one.

  • Rigorous driver safety orientation and training for all our owner-operators

  • Weekly online training courses, with more than 730 modules to bring you up to speed in any area

  • Fatigue management to ensure our drivers are rested and ready on the road

  • Seasonal awareness programs to keep you safe in changing conditions

  • Performance recognition for our safest drivers 

  • Quality review program and best practice reviews to make sure our safety practices meet the highest standards

CAPACITY & EXPERIENCE TO DRIVE YOUR BUSINESS

Choosing the right freight partner can prove to be challenging. Transportation companies come in all different sizes, some are brokers with various carrier partners and others with small private fleets. Circle Transportation is uniquely positioned to provide shippers with extensive asset coverage through its owner-operator fleet. By removing the steps between our customers and third-party carriers, we are able to provide the highest level of customer care and dedication to seamless deliverability. 

At Circle Transportation, our Owner Operators come first. We strive to support them with every possible technology, process and human to make their deliveries faster, easier, and more efficient. While they aren’t in the office, they are a major part of our culture. Circle Transportation gives its Contractors the ability to achieve their highest career goals. From scheduling and tracking to dispatch support and load payment speed, Circle Transportation is there to fuel our Owner Operators' success.
