Arka Express selects Per Diem Plus for Samsara

Arka Express selects Per Diem Plus for Samsara to raise driver pay and enhance operational efficiency for its 400-vehicle "first in excellence" fleet.

“The API was quick and easy to set up and run, which was a significant factor in our choosing Per Diem Plus for Samsara.”

Art Astrauskas, President


Arka Express has evolved from a small 35-unit carrier located out of Markham, IL, to an elite, state-of-the-art fleet of 400 units built by the top transportation professionals in the industry in only 10 years. 

In addition to our Markham terminal, they are currently establishing headquarters in Indiana, Atlanta, Georgia and Marlboro Township, New Jersey as they continue to deliver services throughout the Midwest, east coast and Southeast. Drivers typically operate in a 400-mile regional radius in both Chicago and Atlanta. In addition, they have developed an OTR presence from the Dakotas to Florida to New York—and everything in between.

What Customer Needed:

  • An IRS-compliant mobile application platform solution that would allow for rapid deployment with minimal investment in dollars and IT resources.
  • A web services dashboard that would be easy-to-use for non-technical users.
  • A scalable,  secure, cloud-based solution to meet the growing needs of their fleet.
  • Automated administration of a company-paid accountable per diem program.

Per Diem Projected Results:

  • The fleet should save more than $3,600 per driver annually through reduced income and payroll taxes and workers compensation.
  • The tax-free per diem program should increase driver pay up to 4.6 cents per mile.
  • API implemented in a single day.

The carrier will be able to increase driver pay AND reduce expenses through implementing Per Diem Plus for Samsara.
