Owner Operators

Ramp Up Your Income When You Partner With Decker

As a Decker independent contractor, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds. You can build your business on our stream of consistent, high-paying freight while still enjoying the freedom and independence of being your own boss.

Our owner operators enjoy the savings and support of being part of the Decker team, including a nationwide fuel card system, accounting/bookkeeping services, and Safety Award Programs, such as our Million Mile Team.

In addition, we offer a lease purchase program in both of our reefer and flatbed divisions for drivers who are ready to move up to owning their own businesses.
