Flatbed Like a Decker
When was the last time you heard a flatbed truck driver say they didn’t have to load or unload? At Decker you’ll haul drop-and-hook-style loads straight to job sites. Plus, you’ll be paid for load securement time. Earn more per mile running regional lanes and that keep you closer to home. You’ll drive some of the newest trucks on the road with the corporate-style benefits and recognition you deserve.
Operating out of two main terminals in Fort Dodge, IA and Bessemer, AL, our flatbed drivers run throughout the Midwest and the South. The majority of loads include hauling steel, building products and wallboard throughout the Central U.S. with an average length of haul of 400 miles. Depending on your proximity to our Fort Dodge or Bessemer terminals, you will get home every 10-14 days.
