prime culture

our values

Our mission is to prosper while providing excellent service to our customers, and our policy is to do our best, do what’s right and treat others the way you want to be treated. Here, our values are our guiding principles that keep us always performing our best.

Customers

Finding, serving and keeping customers guarantees our existence.

Profit

To remain free and provide security for our company and associates, we must earn a profit.

Safety

We will operate safely. We will not exchange the safety of an associate or the public for economic gain.

Share

We will share with our associates fairly based on their contribution to our prosperity.

GROWTH

We will seek growth and challenge for our company and associates, while maintaining security and stability.

Excellence

Our goal is to be the best. We will strive for total quality and continuous improvement.

SERVICE

We will provide quality service that meets or exceeds our customers’ requirements. We offer 24/7 support, which is not common with trucking companies.

TECHNOLOGY

We will use cost effective technology to improve our productivity to the mutual benefit of our company, associates and customers.

PRODUCTIVITY

Productivity improvement is the only true way to increase earnings for our company and associates.

FUN

We will provide a work environment that is enjoyable. We will select associates, vendors and customers that we can get along with and enjoy. We believe that life is too short not to have fun.

ASSOCIATES

We believe our independent contractors and employees are truly team members, and we call them associates. We will respect all associates as members of our Prime family. To ensure quality people, capable of near perfect performance, we will select associates very carefully.

VALUE

We will price our service at rates that are a true value to our customers. We will purchase products and services that possess the best value by producing the most benefit for the least total cost over time, and not necessarily at the lowest price.

Environment

We will use our abilities and resources to protect the environment. We are responsible citizens of the beautiful planet Earth.

Sustainability

We’re industry leaders when it comes to reducing our environmental impact. Whether it’s through our EcoDrive custom tire treads or sourcing surface and recycled water at our Triple Crown Wash, we’re willing to go the extra mile when it comes to going green. We have been recognized by the EPA’s SmartWay program for our devotion to sustainability, being named as an Excellence Award Winner since 2012.

highway diamonds

Prime’s Highway Diamond program encourages women to become truck drivers by offering social support and working toward our goal of reducing the challenges faced by women in the transportation industry. We’re proud to have nearly 14% of our fleet composed of women drivers, more than double the national average.

Good Dads

We firmly believe that it is possible to be a good dad and a over-the-road driver, and through our Good Dads program, we can help fathers to communicate with their children as they manage their careers. By hosting events, providing useful information and releasing our Good Dads podcast, we aim to make it easier for our OTR dads to be the dads we know they can be.

Driver Advisory Board

Each year, sixteen of Prime’s best drivers become part of the Driver Advisory Board, representing the interests of drivers to the company. These drivers have the opportunity to sit down with some of Prime’s key stakeholders on a  regular basis to address industry updates, safety concerns, maintenance updates and driver operations. All drivers have direct access to the Driver Advisory Board, allowing their feedback to be heard regardless of whether they are on the board or not.
