A family-owned trucking company built by a driver for drivers, legend transportation is proud to offer a comprehensive pay and benefits package that is 14% higher than industry average. The company also offers competitive fuel and mileage incentives, flexible lane options, top-tier equipment, and a dedicated customer service team.
Owner Sunny Samara began the company in 2006 with just one tractor-trailer and a handful of customers. Today, legend transports over the road freight in the “Eleven Western” states and Texas, with refrigerated capacity in California, Washington, and Oregon.
Samara and Moffitt attribute their success to hard work and smart technology. They invest in their people and customer base, and utilize technology that creates a transparent environment for everyone involved. They recently partnered with leading commercial telematics provider SkyBitz and integrated it with their TMS, McLeod Software. This enables true visibility into the truck and trailer down the road.
Whether it’s a customer calling to see if their load has arrived or a driver looking for a specific load, legend transportation takes the time to answer questions and provide exceptional service. Dedicated staff members even answer phone calls after hours. “One customer called at 7:30 p.m. and we were still open,” Moffitt says.
Legend transports a wide variety of loads, from fresh produce to furniture. Their goal is to match the right load with the right driver. They are also mindful of drivers’ familial commitments and work to meet important downtime requests. The company also provides a number of perks to help them maximize their mileage, including 70-80% drop-and-hook loads.
