The Variant Ambassador Origin Story
Without drivers, there is no trucking industry. But that hasn't stopped many carriers from treating these essential professionals like an expendable resource. And look where it's gotten our industry—the paychecks are inconsistent, support is minimal, there’s zero loyalty, home-time policies are a joke, and common decency and respect are often nowhere to be found. So, drivers keep searching for something better, which means companies spend every spare dollar on recruiting instead of investing in their driver experience.
It’s not good for business, and it’s definitely not good for drivers.
We’re out to change all that. Hence the name Variant, derived from the Latin word variantem, “to change.” Our approach is a complete departure from industry norms. We built tech solutions to replace stale operational processes. We freed up time for drivers to focus on what they do best—driving. But we’re not stopping there. We want consistent, personal feedback from drivers so we can continue to make changes that improve their lives.
That’s the reason we created the Variant Ambassador Program. It’s a new way of recruiting run by fellow drivers who don’t make empty promises. Ambassadors are empowered to share their real experiences and opinions, because they know firsthand that Variant delivers on its promises. And the best part? Those drivers get paid extra to help their company grow.
