Everything you need to know about us


Our Mission

Our Mission is simple, you serve America delivering the things we all need every day, so we are here to serve you. To help you understand all the business aspects of being a Professional Owner Operator and help you avoid the pitfalls of not having the information and services you need to succeed.

Every year people and companies that are regulated by The FMCSA and DOT are inspected and fined heavily, in 2018 alone the DOT did 3.5 million inspections which resulted in 5.9 million violations.

The industry is currently flooded with third party companies some are good but not all are above board most wait until you are in violation or they just assume you are and then use scare tactics bullying you the owner operators into spending thousands of dollars annually while often times they will just send you a blank for to fill out, have you overpay for UCR fee, DCG, or give you misinformation that can end up hurting your business.

What you need is information on What the DOT and FMCSA need from you and when they need it by, not some strong-arm tactics. We see you the Independent Truckers in a different light, you are businessmen and businesswomen who like all other businesses need help to be proactive and not reactive on compliance we do this by ensuring you know what compliance is due for when its due and exactly how to do it step by step. We also looked at issues in communication such as security, large file transfer, and email to text to simplify your business as well as personal communication.

We combined both the communication and DOT notification together to prevent you from being placed in non-compliance and getting fined or even worse being placed in out of service which could damage your business permanently or increase your CSA score which will usually increase your insurance costs significantly. We look at you the Independent Trucker like we are your full-time consultant, compliance, and safety department, our only goal is to ensure that you do not give up hard earned dollars for failure to comply with regulations or fall prey to unscrupulous third parties.

The DOT Lounge is here for you we continue to innovate and add value to the program, we also bring value added service such as bookkeeping, factoring, loans, leases, discount programs, fuel cards, and more for you our valued clients.

THE EXTRA MILE

So as most people would assume, when starting a business you do your research, study a market, find a niche, and then start from there. However, this is not the typical company and so our roots started a little different. When we wanted to start THE DOT LOUNGE, we wanted to be the best and understand the drivers and owners better than anyone so the CEO made a plan and it will surprise you how we got so much insight into being a driver and an owner operator.

Surprise, the CEO and his son became Owner Operators just to find out what it took to be a driver and an owner, found out what it took to make it work and what service industries were lacking in. This is magic stuff that makes THE DOT LOUNGE so special, we know what it's like to be you. We can empathize with all the situations you run into because we were there just like you. The CEO pulled Coast to Coast on various accounts and didn't hide in the south during the winter, he lived on I-80 during the worst of it, wanted to see the worst of it, so he could relate to the worst of it.

You won't find a more dedicated company to its industry than THE DOT LOUNGE. We understand the truck driver because we are truck drivers.
