Supporting every driver, Every mile, Every day.
It's not the innovative equipment or the best freight that makes us a career destination. It's our dedication to acknowledging our drivers for being the professionals we know they are. We have a proud culture of supporting every driver, every mile, every day.
At Swift, it is all about balancing the life equation. This means getting you home for your well deserved home time is a priority.
Swift over-the-road drivers are typically out for 10-14 days at a time. Regional drivers home time varies based on freight demand.
Swift uses late model Freightliner and Volvo tractors—92% of which are less than five years old.
Swift transports a variety of freight from retail to industrial materials—the majority of which is no touch and drop & hook. Our divisions include: Convention Services, Container, Dedicated, Flatbed, Heavy Haul, Intermodal, Refrigerated and Dry Van.
Swift dispatchers go through "Driver Management 101" to learn how to work one-on-one with drivers. Our ratio of dispatchers to drivers is generally 1:40.
As North America's leading truckload carrier, Swift has the freight and the miles to enable our truckers to reach their financial goals.
Each Swift truck features Qualcomm on-board computers. They provide wireless communications that help improve driver and dispatcher productivity, reduce fuel consumption and improve customer service. We also employ TrailerTRACS to help locate trailers and improve utilization of trailer assets. In addition to our Micro Mapping application, our planners are able to optimally assign truckloads to drivers.
