who we are
Experienced International Staff
Extra Mile International staff has over 100 years of combined experience in the trucking industry. We gladly use that knowledge to help each member of our team reach their highest potential. We train, motivate, mentor, and really do everything we can to shape each driver into a true ROAD WARRIOR. Once driver becomes an owner operator, we help them manage his fleet, his funds, and we teach him to scale the business. This is a very important part of the growth. Most drivers are scared to go in this business for the lack of knowledge, and unfortunately most people don't share their trade secrets, and consider other owner operators a competition. We do not support that kind of environment; instead, we focus on making sure every driver or contractor makes money with us. And if they do make money, that means so did we. If we can help them get there, then it's good for everyone. We want to work with drivers who are ambitious and want to become successful.
