WICHITA, KS… Cargill has launched a new mileage-based fleet for owner-operators.  Contractors are paid for all dispatched miles, with twice weekly settlements.  Cargill is currently leasing owner-operators located within 250 miles of the following cities: Fort Morgan, CO; Friona, TX; Marshall, MO; Dodge City, KS; Schuyler, NE; and Springdale, AR.  The company is leasing for other areas as well and drivers are home most weekends.

The freight is refrigerated, hauling fresh and frozen meat direct from Cargill processing plants.  Most of  the hauls are 600 miles or less.  Contractors can bring their own trailer or pull one of Cargill’s with no trailer rental fees.  It is steady, year-round work and since you are hauling direct for the shipper, all the middlemen are cut out of the picture.

Cargill was established over 150 years ago with the concept of connecting farmers directly to consumers.  The company has grown to own plants in 60 countries (30 in the USA) and employs over 150,000 people.  The Cargill fleet has about 200 owner-operators currently leased with no company trucks.  The company is always growing, continually creating opportunities for independent contractors.  To learn more about Cargill’s new mileage-based fleet or other fleets operated by the company, call 800-835-3119.
