By upholding these rigorous criteria, we ensure that our owner operators meet the highest safety standards and contribute to the success of our organization. We are dedicated to maintaining a professional and reliable fleet of drivers at Agan Global.

    • No DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) or DUI (Driving Under the Influence) convictions involving alcohol or drugs, whether illegal or prescription, within the last ten (10) years. Management discretion applies to offenses over ten years old. Multiple convictions of DWI or DUI are not permitted.

  2. Sexual Offenses:

    • No convictions for any sexual-related crimes or offenses. This includes offenses such as rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault of a minor, indecency with a child, or any other offense deemed by management to fall within this category.
