— OWNER OPERATORS
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR CAREER.
At Redbone Trucking, we believe in boosting each other up. We believe that the secret to long-term success is respect and trust. As an owner operator, you get to take advantage of everything we’ve put in place to maximize your profits and help you run your business stress-free.
— Redbone works for you
FREEDOM, STABILITY, SUPPORT.
A lot of stress can come from being an owner operator. From skyrocketing fuel prices to slumps in the spot market, there are no shortage of risks when running your own rig. And while other carriers paint a rosy picture and then take advantage of you when the time comes, we’ve built our owner operator program in a way that encourages YOU to take advantage of US.
We don’t pay percentage rates. Now hear us out…
Percentage sounds great at first glance. If the market is going crazy, you’re making great money and all is well. But what goes up must come down. And when it comes back down, that percentage pay means that you might struggle to save for repairs, truck payments, or personal expenses. Pair that with sky-high fuel prices and it’s easy to see how things can get ugly.
At Redbone Trucking, we pay a flat per-mile rate and a cost-adjusted fuel surcharge. This means that when the market is hot, you’re making the same great money that you would with percentage pay, but when the market cools down, you’re protected and we take the hit. You get stability in knowing that you’re paid a great rate regardless of market volatility or fuel prices.
That’s what sets us apart and sets you up for success.
UNBEATABLE FUEL DISCOUNTS
Our fuel program pairs discounted rates with the nation’s largest chains and a daily scan of every gas station in the country to find you the best rates on top of your fuel discount. Owner Ops see up to $0.50 off per gallon.
COST-ADJUSTED FUEL SURCHARGE
To protect our owner operators during fuel cost spikes, we adjust the fuel surcharge every week to reflect what you saw at the pump, saving you even more money.
You’re free to choose any insurance company and any plan that you’d like, but if you sign on to Redbone’s insurance then we subsidize your plan, cutting average insurance costs in half.
Eliminate any confusion or uncertainty caused by a rocky market. We pay per mile instead of percentage so we take the hit if the market crashes and you get to enjoy a stable business.
Use our full-service in-house shop in SLC and enjoy discounted rates on all services. The shop is open 24/6 (closed Sunday) and is fully-staffed to get your repairs done immediately and correctly.

THE NITTY GRITTY
Lanes and Freight
Most of our freight moves out of Utah and travels south to Arizona or directly to the east coast and back. Our average length of haul is 2,000 miles, meaning that you’ll spend less time at the dock and more time on the road.
We haul refrigerated and dry van freight for dedicated, well-known, and well-organized customers. All freight is no-touch.
IT’S YOUR LIVELIHOOD ON THE LINE. DON’T PARTNER WITH A CARRIER THAT DOESN’T UNDERSTAND THAT.
Redbone Trucking started as a single 25-year-old owner operator. We’ve grown to over 200 employees because we understand that our entire business is centered around treating drivers right. Whether that means being transparent with pay or respecting a driver’s wishes to spend a bit more time at home with their family, we bend over backward to make sure that our drivers, whether company or owner op, are successful and happy in their career.
