Join our Team!

Our driver opportunities are unique: every new hire is an investment with extensive training on our claims and load management processes. We provide the training and resources to ensure your success. That commitment results in our achieving and maintaining one of the lowest claims rates in the industry. 

You’ll enjoy work relationships based on our Company Values. Our actions, leadership and work culture embrace these values and our commitment to customer service creates a culture where communication is encouraged and expected. We provide each Driver with a company cell phone as well as on-board communication via PeopleNet. Drivers can contact the Dispatch Team for scheduling help and Drivers are directly linked to our Claims Manager, who provides support for load management issues. We provide phone numbers for the Polar Express Management team.

Safety is #1

As part of the Kool Pak° family of transportation companies, we have a Safety Director and Maintenance Manager to ensure your safety. Our Maintenance Manager facilitates the repair process, whether at one of our terminals or over-the-road. The majority of our tractors are maintained via full-service lease through Penske, ensuring reliable, timely repair.

Driver Jobs:

LOCAL: we maintain local fleets in the Vancouver Lower Mainland, Portland-Metro, Seattle-Metro and Los Angeles-Metro areas. Local Drivers handle LTL deliveries and pick-ups in their designated metro-area. An occasional Shuttle (from one of our Terminals to another) or Regional run might be available or necessary, although most Local Drivers are home nightly.

SHUTTLE: transport freight between Kool Pak° and Polar Express Terminals on set schedules.

REGIONAL OVER-THE-ROAD (OTR): the vast majority of our Company Drivers are Regional OTR performing multi-stop, mixed temperature (or LTL) deliveries and pick-ups throughout the Pacific NW. We dispatch trips weekly on a set schedule. Most Regional OTR Drivers can take their hours-of-service reset at home, unless requested otherwise. Based on personal and business need,  you can also work as a Local Driver or a Shuttle Driver to allow additional home time.
