TTSI CEO Victor LaRosa said there are quite a few independent contractors who make a substantial amount of money. He also said that the port trucking industry isn't opposed to an employee model, but that he wants to preserve the choice to still let drives be independent contractors.

"We found that most of the independent contractors were not credit-worthy, so we needed to come up with a solution," said Vic La Rosa, president of trucking company and logistics provider TTSI, which is helping more than 150 contractors under the Pathway to Ownership program.
Under La Rosa's program, a contractor can own a $115,000 truck after six years by making monthly payments of $1,500 for 72 months.

Vic La Rosa, president and CEO of TTSI in Rancho Dominguez, CA, recently handed over the keys of a truck that Jorge Gomez and his son, also named Jorge, had been leasing since 2009 as independent contractors.
La Rosa said that other independent contractors will soon be reaching the time when they also will be able to purchase the trucks they have been leasing, not only at TTSI, but at other Southern California drayage companies, as well.
This development is an important victory for the harbor trucking companies in Southern California that have argued since the beginning of the Clean Truck Program that they could maintain an owner operator fleet while, at the same time, giving the drivers an opportunity to eventually purchase the trucks. Opponents of this business model, led by the Teamsters, had charged that in the highly-competitive harbor trucking industry, freight rates were too low to allow independent contractor drivers to properly maintain and eventually purchase the new generation of low-emission rigs. The Teamsters union, which has been attempting to organize drivers at the nation's container ports, said a successful Clean Truck Program must be based on the model of financially-sound drayage companies purchasing the trucks and hiring the drivers as direct employees.
La Rosa said that the Southern California business model could not have succeeded without the cooperation of cargo interests such as Target Corp.

La Rosa said TTSI's next goal is to operate trucks that approach zero emissions. "Our mission is far from over," he said. TTSI is working with a local manufacturer to test trucks with fuel cell and battery technology that one day may be able to withstand the rigors of harbor drayage while emitting virtually no harmful emissions.
