Dear Roadrunner Freight Independent Contractors,

I hope this message finds you safe and healthy. Through all the difficulties we’ve faced as a country recently, I can’t thank you all enough for your steadfast service and for continuing to be part of the Roadrunner Freight family.

As your business partner, we care about the success of your business, but we also care that you feel safe and appreciated. I hope you’ve had an opportunity to read the email I recently sent addressing the civil unrest in our country. As I stated, racism, inequality and disrespect have no place at Roadrunner Freight. We are here to support your business, but your wellness comes first. One way for you to provide anonymous feedback is through the Workhound app. We encourage you to utilize this tool to inform us of any issues you feel we need to know about.

Our company continues to grow even with the current headwinds we are facing. This growth is giving our Independent Contractors ample options to keep moving and growing their businesses. Read on for more about our company updates, new business won and driver spotlights.

Ship It Like You Own It,
