We’re hiring at these locations:
- Sumner, Washington
- Clackamas, Oregon
- Rancho Cucamonga, California
Join one of our west coast fleets for local LTL deliveries and pick-ups. Occasional shuttle (from one of our terminals to another) or regional runs might be available or necessary. Most positions are home nightly.
You’ll be responsible for transporting freight between our five West Coast Kool Pak° Terminals on set schedules.
Regional Over-the-Road (OTR) Drivers
Handle multi-stop, mixed temperature or LTL deliveries and pick-ups weekly through seven western states. Although not dedicated routes, we ensure home time meets overall expectations and provide more variety than the I-5 corridor. Most Drivers can take their hours-of-service reset at home, unless requested otherwise. Based on personal and business needs, you can also work as a Local or Shuttle Driver for additional home time.
We have built a reputation for taking great care of our teams and providing an excellent platform for teams to run a variety of schedules from regional home weekly up to 48 states. Our driver teams handle both regional and transcontinental routes. Eastbound loads tend to be multi-stop, mixed temperature (LTL). Return or westbound loads tend to be truckloads.
KOOL PAK° contracts with independent owner operators to supplement our company fleet. Our KOOL PAK° Owner-Operator program offers you the best freedom, choice and flexibility, with weekly settlements, discounted fuel, IFTA fuel tax information, operating authority, permits and insurance. We’ll create a program tailored to your needs. Call our contract carrier manager at 888-KP4-JOBS or submit the Pre-Screen above.
