When it comes to trucking companies in the USA, there is obviously zillion number of them. Big and small carriers and independent owner-operators account for combined yearly revenue of more than 200 billion. According to Trucking industry overview, the industry is fragmented - the 50 largest companies account for less than 30 % of the market. So there are hundreds of thousands of small trucking companies that exist in a highly competitive industry.

For those, who have worked in the industry it is easy to look at the company snapshot on SaferWeb to determine how big is its fleet or how many out of service violations it has. These numbers always matter - if you are a broker, you want to make sure you choose the best carrier, if you are a driver, you want to drive for the best company. It is easy to notice the red flags and on the contrary to see the "perfect profile." Merx Global, for example, is one of the companies with perfect safety record. For 14 years in the business, the company has grown its fleet and manage to establish a stable relationship with big accounts. All of this without closing down and then reopening like many chameleon carriers.
