    There are plenty of logistics companies, so how are Beacon Transport jobs different? There are many factors that make a great place to work. Company ideals and goals factor into not only the business model but also how they treat their employees. These employees, after all, are the lifeblood of the business. Without them, there would be no business. Beacon Transport knows this. They work hard to ensure their employees have everything they need to both succeed and be happy. So what sets them apart? Why is Beacon Transport such a great place to work? Beacon Transport Jobs Offer More Than Pay Of course, the paycheck is the reason anybody works. Beacon Transport wants to go a few steps further than offering the bare minimum. Benefits An employee at Beacon Transport has the opportunity to take advantage of a multitude of benefits.  These include medical insurance, dental insurance, and both long-term and short-term disability insurance. These insurance plans are offered at group rates which lowers the employee’s monthly premiums. A life insurance policy of $15,000 on the employee is included with Beacon Transport jobs. Saving for your future is made easy with a 401(k) plan. Vacation pay ensures the employees get the rest they need without sacrificing their paycheck.

Beacon Transport offers a series of bonuses and potentials for a raise: Safety/Performance raise Referral bonus Clean inspection bonus Help on the Road Beacon Transport’s service area has been tailored to maximize profitability for our employees. This means our service area doesn’t extend to high-traffic areas like New York City. Other high-traffic areas like Chicago are made easier with the I-Pass. E-Z Pass and PrePass are also offered to make the drives as seamless as possible. An experienced assigned dispatcher is available for each driver. This ensures any questions that may come up will be dutifully answered. And if you happened to get stuck with a long load/offload, detention pay will make sure you don’t feel like you’re wasting your time.
