Owner Operators

Secure Online Application


Miller Transfer, a premier flatbed carrier, is continually searching for excellence and that begins with Owner Operators. Our Owner Operators are more than truck drivers; they are business owners who take pride in their work. Miller is NOT your typical flatbed carrier, we are unique in various internal and external ways.
Below are the many reasons you should select Miller Transfer as your next driving career:

Miller means more...

  • On average Miller Transfer Owner Operators consistently earn more money while driving fewer miles. This results in less wear on your truck with fewer expenses. During 2015 our fleet averaged $2.19 per mile for all miles to the truck.
  • Miller is a financially stable company. We have remained strong and continued to grow during tough and prosperous economic times.
  • Miller’s management promotes a “small company” atmosphere. Thus, our “open door” policy provides for the personal attention and two-way communication needed to respond to your specific suggestions or requirements.
  • Every Miller Owner Operator can be selective in their schedule of home time. We are not a “forced board” dispatch carrier.
  • Miller offers direct deposit settlements because we understand time is money! You can feel confident that your funds are in your account which offers you peace-of-mind while being on the road.

If you are an Owner Operator with a minimum of 2-3 years of experience searching for a financially stable, premier flatbed carrier, who will advance your skills, you must experience Miller Transfer. Contact us to learn why 30% of our drivers have been with Miller for over 10 years and 21% of our drivers are in the Million Mile Club. Flatbed experience is typically preferred to lease-on with the company. However, if you have a clean MVR and PSP with combination vehicle experience we can offer flatbed training. Our trainer is a certified, experienced driver well-versed in flatbeds and the art of cargo securement. Call Miller Transfer today and jumpstart your driving career!
