New Trucks at Corporate

Tandem Transport is not just another trucking company. It is a family owned business dedicated to providing quality flatbed transportation based on safety, professionalism, and operational efficiency all working through a spirit of cooperation. For over 65 years, Tandem and affiliated companies have been providing quality flatbed transportation service throughout the US. Although most of our business is east of the Mississippi River, we continue to grow our lanes of coverage to include much of the South, East and some Western areas. We are looking for professionals (both Company Drivers and Independent Contractors) who are proud to be in transportation and who believe that “companies do not succeed, people do”.

What makes Tandem special? Here is a short list of benefits and opportunities to members of the Tandem Team:

  • Careers with a future – not just a job
  • Top Pay for top service
  • Equipment pride, quality and comfort (more info...)
  • Home time is a priority
  • Recognition and reward where it is deserved (more info...)
  • Our Driver Rep Program makes effective communications our policy, not just a slogan (more info...)

At Tandem, we are large enough to provide excellent pay, equipment, and benefits to our drivers but still small enough to provide individual attention. For our customers, we can offer OTR, Regional, Dedicated, and Logistic services. Please review our Carrier Profile and/or our Flatbed and Logistics Services page for greater detail of our operations and services offered.

Our growth has not affected our ability to treat each customer and driver individually. Our drivers and customers are known by their faces and names. Although we utilize state-of-the art equipment in computer technologies and driving equipment, we also believe that one-on-one communications is essential for a business to succeed.

Careers with Top Pay

Our drivers can earn up to 47 cents per mile in their first year (including bonuses and incentives). We challenge anyone to find a better paying flatbed operation (all pays included). Tandem recognizes the value of its drivers and is willing to pay top dollar to get top drivers. We not only offer one of the highest pay packages, but we also offer comprehensive insurance coverage that continues to cost less the longer your are employed. Please contact our recruiters to discuss the details of our pay package.

Unbeatable Benefits

Benefits are as crucial, and in some cases, more crucial, than pay. At Tandem we understand that a career is more than just what you get in your paycheck. Therefore, we have developed a pay package with benefits and options that fit the needs of you and your family.

Our health benefits cover medical, dental, and optical. There are also different levels offered based on your desired contribution and coverage. We also offer a 401k plan so that you, as well as Tandem, can invest in your future. Tandem provides an incentive by contributing to the plan based on your individual contribution. Please contact our recruiters to discuss the details of our benefit package.

Equipment Pride

If you are looking for up-to-date, state-of-the-art equipment, look no further. Our tractors and trailers follow a strict renewal plan that insures you will always have late-modeled, well maintained equipment. We run Freightliner, Volvo, and International tractors along with East and Reitneour all-aluminum trailers. Click here to find out more detail about the excellent equipment you can be operating.

Driver Recognition and Reward
Driver of the Year

Tandem recognizes how important each driver is to the success of the company. Therefore, we are dedicated to recognizing each driver for their contributions to the Tandem Team. We are proud of the quality and performance of our drivers and both recognize and reward their achievements. We do this through our annual awards banquet. We also have productivity incentives such as a fuel incentive that pays up to $0.04 per mile and various other forms of recognition.

Driver Rep Program

Tandem goes one step further than most trucking companies when it comes to listening to its drivers. Our Driver Representative Program is unique in the transportation industry. 25 to 30 drivers (inclusive of Company Drivers and ICs) are elected for two year terms to represent the fleet at monthly Driver Representative meetings. The purpose of this group is to provide a forum for drivers and management to share issues critical to the company's operation and offer ideas to improve relationships, processes and procedures. This ranges from tarp specs and pay packages to the review of terminal personnel and operations. Click here for more details about our Driver Rep program and how you can participate.
