Usher Transport - Career Opportunities

Though we are a nationwide carrier, our areas of operation allow us to recruit from both regional and local settings which provides our drivers and owner-operators the diversity and choice to run over-the-road, regional, dedicated, as well as locally.

The majority of our fleet spends less than two nights per week on overnight travel with most loads being either a one-day or day and a half trip. If you like to stay out a little longer, we can do that as well. One thing we can guarantee you is that you will not be out on a 7 to 14 day dispatch as with most carriers.

We are always open to accepting applications for any driving position within the company whether you are an owner-operator or company driver.
