TMC Transportation has opportunities for OTR flatbed drivers. At TMC, we provide our drivers with late model Peterbilt trucks that are maintained at the highest levels. If you’ve seen our trucks on the road, you know this to be fact, not just empty promotion. We also give our OTR drivers the option on how they want to be paid, by mileage or percentage. Our performance based percentage pay package was designed by our drivers with the driver in mind, and is favored by 85% of our fleet. It provides drivers with the unique opportunity to be paid based on the quality of their work, rather than how long they’ve been with a company. Drivers that choose this package have the potential to earn the equivalent of 48 cents/mile in their second month with us.Why wait for top mileage pay based only on tenure? Drivers who live in our target hiring area will be home almost every weekend - at least 46 out of 52 weekends a year. You will haul flatbed freight throughout the lower 48 and Canada but most of your loads will deliver in the eastern half of the United States. We do not require any previous flatbed experience, and we also hire recent truck driving school graduates. Our training program is a Department of Labor certified apprenticeship that will make you an expert in load securement, tarping, and open freight driving techniques, no matter your experience level!

Why choose to drive for TMC over any other truck company?
