About Fortune Transportation
Founded in 1980, Fortune Transportation has grown into a full-truck-load, over-the-road refrigerated carrier with terminals throughout the Midwest in Windom, Minnesota; Greeley, Colorado; and Roswell, New Mexico. We take pride in knowing we are contributing to the economy and people’s quality of life by hauling food and beverages across the heart of America.
Fortune Transportation is pleased to provide personalized freight services to small towns that are too remote for larger carriers. Delivering our brand of customer service has benefited not only our company but our truck drivers as well. Our drivers enjoy the opportunity for stability in where they are going and in knowing the person who will be greeting them every time when they get there.
Core Values Are Our Roadmap to Success
Fortune Transportation is guided by a set of morals that consist of six values: Ability-Driven Loops, Level Pay, Home Time, Respect, Looking Ahead, and Safety.
We believe in providing ability-driven loops matching drivers with loads based upon their driving ability, E-log requirements, load availability, and where our driver’s home is. Meeting not only our company’s needs but that of our drivers as well, has largely contributed to Fortune’s success and positive driver relationships.
We think our drivers deserve pay options that suit their needs. That is why, we offer a “level-pay option”, in which our drivers are paid weekly based on their average miles. Doing this allows our drivers and their families to budget more easily with a consistent weekly pay check with differences settled quarterly.
Fortune Transportation operates in a work environment that has a foundation built on mutual-respect. Respect is offered to all current and new employees; however, it is up to the drivers to maintain it.
The Fortune family here is top notch.
We believe strongly in working while you’re on duty, and spending time with your family while off duty. As a family-owned company and as past-drivers, we understand the importance of home time. Our drivers benefit from being able to do their weekly 34-hour reset in the comfort of their own home.
At the core of our values, sits safety. Fortune Transportation believes in working to keep our employees safe from both physical, and financial harm through regular safety training and offering various financial solutions.
Always Moving Forward
We’re relentless in our pursuit of improvement. As such, we’re pleased to be part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program that monitors company’s supply chain sustainability. SmartWay measures factors like CO2 emissions per mile and Fortune is among SmartWay’s top-rated freighters in America. As one of 75 awardees, we have been recognized for moving more goods more miles with lower emissions and less energy.
Finally, we take pride at Fortune Transportation in being a leader in the transportation industry. We were early to roll on in E-logs, and ahead of the curve in being one of the first companies to select customers and secure freight lanes based on receivers, shippers, and the ability of our drivers.
As our company grows you can depend on us to continue to look for ways to solve problems for our customers and offer the best opportunities for our drivers.
