Each agent works diligently to provide their owner operators with regional as well as local freight opportunities. This allows the owner operators to maximize earning potential while providing the most home time possible.

Other support items such as paying of fuel taxes, tag program, and access to health insurance are just some of the many advantages available to the professional owner operator that partners with the Cowan Intermodal Group.
