Tri-State Motor Transit, a leader in high-security trucking, makes an unusual high-stakes bet: All newly qualified trucker drivers will make more money in their first six months driving for Tri-State than they did in the most recent past six months with their prior company. If not, Tri-State will pay them a $5,000 cash bonus. Guaranteed.

John Wilbur, CEO at Tri-State, is putting his money where his mouth is. “Our drivers are the best paid in the industry, and we’re ready to prove it to new drivers. What do they have to lose? If new drivers don’t make more money as promised, then I’ll lose the bet. I hate to lose, but I’ll honor my word and pay up.”

Drivers can find out if they qualify by going to or by calling a recruiter at 855-622-3664.

“Many of our Owner Operator Teams make more than $500,000 a year,” says Wilbur. “Our HAZMAT Team Drivers do well, too. Our top driver made $101,287.36 last year. That’s why I’m confident in my guarantee—make more money, or I’m paying drivers $5.000 cash.”

Tri-State is the national leader in specialized, high-security transportation, operating a fleet in excess of 300 satellite-tracked trucks (mostly teams). Tri-State operates a fleet of vans, flatbeds, Conestoga trailers, and dromedary (DROM) trains.
