OTR Dry-van Driver

“Buchheit, a great company to work for. They go extra mile to help the driver. You are not treated like a number. Everyone is on a first name basis. Very good equipment; the shop is always willing to solve mechanical problems. I look forward to going to work every day.”

Independent Contractor

“After 5 years with Buchheit Logistics, I have been a company driver in both the van and end dump fleets and now an owner/operator with 2 trucks. I would have to say this is one of the best opportunities that I have ever been privileged to be a part of. Having been nominated by Buchheit, and chosen by the Missouri Trucking Association as a Missouri State Driver of the Month was not only an honor, but goes to show how being here at Buchheit Logistics is being part of a true family run operation. I would recommend Buchheit Logistics to anyone looking for a long-term opportunity in this industry.”

“Like this company; good people to work for. Good miles on the OTR side, good pay too. They do treat you like family; I don't feel like a number, but a member of a family. Buchheit's listen to the drivers and just don't throw away your concerns as a driver like most companies do. I enjoy my home-time and can have a good family life with Buchheit. Dispatch is wonderful and lets the driver be what he is: A Driver.”

“I've been driving a truck for 24 years, and when I got this job at Buchheit, I knew right away that it was going to be different from any other job I've ever had, and it wasn't long before I knew it was the best job I've ever had in my trucking career. I don't think you’re going to find better people to work with that will actually be the same people after two years as they were when you started. I plan on making this the last job I’ll ever have until I retire.”
