Independent Operator Lease Program

If your desire is to become an independent operator in charge of your own business, then you will likely be interested in TransX’s Independent Operator Lease Program, which is designed to help make owning a truck more affordable. Through its volume purchasing power, TransX buys quality trucks at industry leading prices and then leases them to truck drivers at financing rates that are typically much lower than normally available to most drivers. As a result, owner-operators with TransX benefit from the company’s buying and financing power, whether they are buying their first truck or their fifth.
