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.
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. And while you’re in town, a weekly direct deposit makes payday as easy 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.
