If you are an experienced owner/operator looking for one of the nation's best towaway companies, Prime Transport is the place for you!


Prime Transport Inc. offers one of the best partnerships for owner/operators in the "power only" towaway business.  With our business, there is no loading, unloading, or tarping-just power only!  We haul a diverse set of primarily empty trailers for our valued customers.  The advantage empty trailers have is that they will significantly improve your fuel mileage.  In addition, we take great pride in providing one of the lowest bobtail percentages in the towaway industry.  With the price of fuel, we strongly believe that every penny matters!


Prime Transport leases owner/operators from all parts of the United States.  We strive to build personal relationships with each one of our drivers by identifing you by your name rather than your truck number!  If you are an owner/operator looking to join our team of towaway specialists, check out what Prime Transport Inc. can offer you and apply today!
