Now Hiring Company Drivers and Owner Operators

Our drivers move freight from direct customers who value the quality of service provided. We strive to keep equipment within our service area on the eastern half of the United States, this allows our sales team to effectively bring in freight for T-U equipment. Having a loyal customer base has been a part of Trans-United’s longevity plan that keeps our trucks loaded and our customers satisfied.

Due to the level of service maintained by our Truckismo standards we have been a Top 50 Specialized Carrier in North America as recognized by American Crane & Transport since 2014. We plan to maintain this status and grow our ranking as we add capacity to our service offering.
