TMC Transportation specializes in hauling freight that requires an open deck trailer (flatbed trailer). Drivers hold a Class-A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). A typical week for TMC drivers will consist of delivery of five loads with an average daily length of haul less than 500 miles. TMC is a regional carrier, meaning that drivers get home on weekends. With our performance pay structure, drivers don’t rely on lots of miles to make great pay.

Common freight that our drivers haul are items such as steel products, lumber, wallboard, pipe and other building materials that must be hauled on a flatbed trailer. Drivers secure the loads onto the trailers and some loads require tarping. TMC has been providing highly effective on-the-job training for over 40 years. Even drivers who are brand new to the industry are trained and have the confidence they need to do the job safely.
