Become A Box Truck Network Member Today!
Benefits of Being A Member
When joining the Box Truck Network as a member, you are doing more than joining a club. You are joining an organization of small truck owners and drivers looking to increase value in their services and businesses by empowering them to look forward to ways that can help them improve the future of their business. Just as no man is an island to himself, this is true also for a business.
We continually are adding value and opportunity within our organization. We believe that no business should have to put 150% into being profitable, only to fail. The truth is, however, that over 80% of box truck companies fail within the 1st year of inception and we believe it is because the risk outweighs the benefits. Let's work on the benefits so this doesn't happen to you.
As a box truck carrier, you will receive the following benefits from being a member:
A load board robust to meet your needs. It is active based on your use of the Truck Post feature. The load board is available at an additional cost.
A dedicated account dispatcher assigned to you if you are on any of our contracts.
Available contracts that can be very profitable and only available to you as a member.
National promotions of your business to customers who are likely to use box trucks to move their freight.
Eligibility to be part of our National LTL platform expanding to over 26 US markets.
National benefits as a member that include discounts on products, services, and training relevant to being a box truck owner.
Opportunity to be part of the Military Freight program we offer to our members
Deep fuel discount using our name brand fuel card.
And much more....
The Steps to Becoming a Member
When you sign up to become a member of our network, there is a process that needs to be done prior to activating your account. The steps needed to be taken include sending us the signed application below. Although we ask for the credit card payment sheet to be sent in with your application, we will not process payment until we review the results of the DOT check that will take place when once we receive your submitted form. If you don't pass the DOT check, we will notify you and not process membership payment.
If you do not pass the DOT background check, you will not be able to have access to our load board and contracted freight opportunities. We are sorry, but this policy must be adhered to by our network
All members must pass a criminal background check. We will access the background check once we receive written approval from you. We will take each case on its merits. If you passed the DOT check but not the criminal check, the membership fee will not be refunded.
After the background check is done, we will set up your profile and create logins to your account. Setups can take up to 48 business hours. We process the applications in the order they are received.
Once you are approved and set up, you will receive an email with login credentials. These credentials will be for access to our load board, Truck Posting, and access to available contracts. We hope you take full advantage to all that we offer and we value your opinion.
The Initial Cost of Becoming a Member
The cost of the membership is $250.00 per year. This is charged on an annual basis and is based on the passing of both the DOT and criminal background check. All memberships are renewed on the anniversary of the approval date of you application.
All memberships are subject to the good standing of the member. We value all our members and desire for our network to be a place where you can come and get the support you need. Best Wishes
The Load Board Option
We do offer a load board as an addon feature. This means that if you are looking for freight in addition to being part of our other network programs, you can search for available loads on our load board. There is a very important caveat to using our board. It will only work for you if you post your truck on our Truck Posting Board and keep it updated. This is a monthly subscription that is great for all our members. The price is $50.00 per month. You are able to select this choice on your application. Subscription is based on your application approval.
Member Safety Plan Requirement
All members of the Box Truck Network are required to have a safety plan on file. The safety plan is actually required by law and you should have one on file. If you don't have a plan on file, one can be made available to you by us. It would be customized with your company information and sent via email for you can keep them in multiple places. If you want a safety plan, please sign up for one on the application. The cost for making your safety plan is $75.
