ROARING SPRING, PA… 2020 was a challenging year for all Americans, but for some companies, including Smith Transport of Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania, not only did well but continued to grow.  

President Todd Smith said, “At Smith Transport  we are constantly looking to the future and focusing on three things: safety, service and people.  Last year Smith Transport invested one million dollars into improving safety and service and 50 million dollars in new equipment.  This year the company is investing in our people with a pay raise.  We look at it not as an expense but as an investment in their future and our own.  We have quietly instituted several pay raises in the last several years, which has enabled us to grow to employ over 1,000 drivers today.  By offering a superior pay and benefit package, as well as new equipment, we attract some of the best drivers in the trucking industry and at the same time, embrace cutting edge technologies in the industry as well.”

Smith continued,  “I am extremely proud of all of our employees staying focus and committed during the pandemic, executing and getting things done. Everyone has done a phenomenal job – from our drivers and dispatchers to our office personnel.  We were awarded “Carrier of the Year” by a major company, hauling over 12,000 loads for them in 2020.  This is only possible by the hard work and dedication of the many Smith Transport drivers and the people who support them every day.”

Smith Transport’s new pay package pays drivers 50¢ plus per mile, on up to 70¢ per mile depending on which division they work for, as well as an attractive benefit package.  Smith Transport operates local fleets, shuttle fleets, dedicated and regional fleets in addition to an OTR fleet that offers weekly or bi-weekly home time.  Smith even operates a high paying oil and gas field division.  

The Smith fleet of company trucks are Peterbilts with an average age of 1.5 years.  There are plenty of available jobs for qualified drivers in most areas east of the Mississippi River.  Smith Transport is an employee owned company.  To learn more, visit or call 88-219-8042.
