our philosophy

What Drives You?® is what we’re known for here at Paper Transport. It’s the question we ask every employee and customer. Why? It’s because it’s not just about what you do, but why you do it. Knowing that allows us to sincerely help people get to where they want to be in life.

Due to this philosophy, the focus at our transportation company isn’t just about hauling freight from here to there. It isn’t just about completing a task and making money. For us, the focus is people and our mission is to build a great place to work. We recognize that every person’s goals are different – they’re motivated by something truly unique to them. That’s why we work with each member of our team to understand their goals, hopes, and dreams, ensuring the Paper Transport family helps them succeed, be happy, and feel fulfilled.

Sustainability Goal

At PTI, we prioritize People, Safety, and Service above all else, and sustainability plays a vital role in each of these areas. As we look towards the future, we are proud to announce three initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint and promote environmental responsibility. By the end of 2024, PTI aims to achieve significant milestones in our journey towards a greener tomorrow.

Mileage Goal

Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our ambitious mileage goal. By the end of 2024, PTI aims to move 74 million miles with natural gas, leading to the preservation of 725,540 diesel gallons of fuel.

Driver Incentive Program

We believe in recognizing and rewarding excellence. That's why PTI has implemented a Driver Incentive Program designed to promote efficient driving and fuel conservation. Our goal is to save 114,285 gallons of annual fuel consumption through best-in-class efficiency by the end of 2024.

Route Optimization

Efficiency is at the heart of everything we do. PTI is dedicated to optimizing every mile through route optimization, backhaul load solicitation, and collaboration with our valued customers. By the end of 2024, we aim to load 80 percent of empty dedicated miles, effectively converting 715,000 gallons of would-be burned empty miles into loaded miles.



You hear it all the time: “We have an awesome culture.” The difference between Paper Transport and other organizations: We truly mean it when we say it. When decisions are made at Paper Transport, they’re made based on What Drives You?® and the impact they’ll have on our employees. Since the entire team is always taken into consideration, there’s a big sense of ownership amongst us all. We all strive to make Paper Transport a great place to work – starting with our leadership team to our support and from our office team to our professional drivers.

Though we have more than 1,000 employees on the team, Paper Transport’s supportive culture results in a family-like work environment. Everyone is valued and recognized for the hard work that they do. Without our employees, our company would not be what it is today and would not be able to grow into what we hope it can become in the future.


Giving back to the community is something that Paper Transport has been involved in since the year the company was founded. Paper Transport's community outreach efforts have always been focused on supporting organizations that provide services and resources directly to families and individuals, making sure they have the things they need to survive. In the beginning, this meant donating to organizations like Paul’s Pantry and the Salvation Army near company headquarters in Wisconsin. Today, we’ve been given the opportunity to give back to people in other communities with the addition of new Paper Transport park locations/terminals throughout the Midwest and Southern United States. Our goal is to help people in the communities where we’re located. Together, we can keep everyone moving forward in the right direction.
