Driver Training

At AYR Motor Express we take you from the "in-class" training program and put you into real on the road situations with some of AYR Motor's finest driver's. You must have completed a driving course with an accredited driving school and possess a class 1 (AZ) driver's license.  

We offer an in house 12 week, paid training program, which involves extensive over the road experience with a highly professional AYR Motor driver-trainer. Our trainers have extensive experience in long-haul miles and over the road driving experience. These individuals will guide you through the training process and help you become a qualified tractor-trailer operator. 

After the 12 week program is over, we offer you a full-time position with the AYR Motor Team as a long haul driver, and provide you with loads of opportunities!

Dispatch Operations

Customer Service is what AYR Motor strives to excel at everyday. The link between Driver's and Dispatch is what allows us to provide the service customers need. 

Our dispatch system is divided into two teams, each team responsible for over 125 trucks. Drivers are assigned their own dispatcher, allowing them to become comfortable with who they are talking to, and build a bond between driver and dispatcher. If you need to be home for a certain date, let your dispatcher know, and he will work as hard as he or she can to make sure the job is done. If you are running low on hours, drivers will relay that information to planning and make sure that the trip you are provided can be accomplished. 

All tractors come equipped with PeopleNet Satellite system to allow for an easier form of communication between driver and dispatch. Each morning driver's are required to check-in before 10am with the previous day's hours of service, via satellite. Throughout the day, your dispatcher will monitor your progress, ensuring that you are on schedule for pick up and delivery. If for some reason you are running behind, dispatch will contact the customer to let them know you are delayed, and relay that to you. As soon as you signal that you are unloaded, dispatch will send your re-load information, and provide directions to your next location.    

At AYR Motor we take pride in our employees, and value the importance driver's play in our success.

Rewards

The performance of driver's does not go unnoticed. Drivers are rewarded for their safety on the road, years of service, and overall performance throughout the year. 

Each and every year, we honour those employees who have made a conscious effort to do their job; above and beyond the call of duty. 

Individual Awards for:
- years of service
- million mile club

Winners are awarded with a plaque, along with prizes. All of this, is what makes AYR Motor a great place to work.
