Mike Dargis

Mike started his career in the industry as a freight handler in Detroit. He has since played key roles in the success of a number of trucking companies. His long commitment to trucking was interrupted by a tour in Vietnam as a U.S. Marine, and Mike remains a strong advocate for veterans. In 2007, Mike founded Green Transportation to bring the service and quality ethos of Zip Xpress to the market for truckload transportation. To reinforce the role of quality, Mike introduced for drivers the Green Transportation “Finishing School.” The school provides one-of-a-kind 90-day training for drivers, and the program gives underwriters the confidence to insure graduates at rates reserved for the most experienced road veterans.
