OTR drivers who want a Lease to Own in two or three years 

For 35 years Midwest Express has been running the Midwest and Southeast with 100 trucks and 250 trailers. 90% of our fleet is made up of Company Drivers and those positions are open, but if you want to lease a truck and run as an owner operator, we have proven plan that has been successful for other drivers.

We want to provide our Owner Operators with a Lease to Own opportunity that gives you ownership of the truck in two or three years depending on which truck you choose. We have 2012 Kenworth T700s and 2013 Freightliner Cascadias. Both have refrigerators and APUs. You can run as a company driver until you feel comfortable enough to run as an owner operator and we will do everything in our power to make it a successful venture for you. We pay our owner operators extra mileage pay if they are safe and productive, just like our company drivers.
