Mido's Trucking selects Per Diem Plus
Mido's Trucking selects Per Diem Plus for Samsara. The St. Louis-based truckload carrier is using Per Diem Plus to further streamline operational efficiency and per diem accounting of its 100-vehicle fleet.
“America is truly the land of opportunity. I am living proof that if you dream big, work hard and persevere anything is possible.”
- Mido Selimovic, President
Mido Selimovic came to the US in 1999 as an 18-year-old refugee from Vlasenica, Bosnia-Herzegovina where his family struggled to stay alive in a country destroyed by the Bosnian War. At age 25 Mido entered the transportation industry by purchasing his first truck. In 2008, he opened Mido's Trucking with his sole purpose being to provide a workplace for fellow war refugees who were looking for a reliable carrier they could work for and call their home. Since starting Mido’s 15 years ago the company has grown to 100 trucks serving 48 states with the help of his wife Azra, a fellow refugee who fled Kozarska-Dubic at the outset of the war when she was 12.
As with many small businesses in America, Mido’s is a family affair with many relatives working for the company as drivers, dispatchers and mechanics. Mido’s mission as refugee haven remains unchanged to this day; they employ drivers from Africa, Asia, Bulgaria, Eastern Europe and Thailand looking for an opportunity to make a fresh start in the USA.
