JoyRide people


JoyRide has great drivers, management, and support staff. People that were hired when we opened our doors are still here. Drivers are the heartbeat of our company. We provide them with the newest equipment, best pay in the industry, incentives, (monthly and quarterly for safe driving), and on time pick-up and delivery. This all sounds great, however, JoyRide has very high standards. We do not invite drivers to fill out an application unless they have been recommended by another driver or team member.

I was born in 1990 in Donji Vakuf, Bosnia & Herzegovina and in 1992 the Bosnian war broke out, my family had to flee from Donji Vakuf. We would seek refuge in Croatia. At the age of four my family decided to try to return back to Bosnia, I was very young. I remember the family getting a ride in a truck that was transporting food. They hid us in the bunk to avoid the military and we did make it back to Bosnia We wanted to go back to Donji Vakuf but the city was in disarray because of the war, so we settled in the town of Travnik. I remember the sirens when there was incoming bombs or grenades. It was a hard life, but as time went on I started to forget the war and life seemed to get back to almost normal. We felt like we were almost living as we had prior to the war. When I turned 18 I had an opportunity to visit my aunt in Boston. When I arrived I spoke very little English, so I didn't feel secure. But I couldn't help but feel inspired. The lights, the traffic, so many successful businesses. I believed there was opportunities here if I could just get a chance. I moved to Grand Rapids, MI, met a beautiful girl, fell in love, and got married. I was helping my wife's uncle who owned a trucking company, spoke very little English, but was determined to succeed. During this time I met a nice gentleman, named Don. He is named Don. He hired me, took me under his wing, and started to train me. When I first started in transportation, I would go into Don's office every afternoon and would listen how he spoke with people. He always made them feel like he was part of the solution and I believed he was because he truly wanted to help the customer. He always said, if you have a logistics problem, take two aspirins and call us in the morning. He said making a live call on the customer was just a follow-up to confirm our commitment. Don told me, to be efficient you had to plan your work and work your plan. If you are not going to enhance your customers business, don't go after it because in the long run it would probably hurt your company and your customers company. By 2014 I decided I wanted to go out on my own and started JoyRide Logistics. Starting with one truck and one customer. After a little over a year of learning the business from the operational side and increasing the amount of business we were doing, I decided it was time to branch out. Fast forward to 2020, Joyride has truly built its Reputation on Reliability. We now have a fleet of over 25 tractors and trailers.
