High Country Transportation, Inc. knows that the foundation of our success is dependent upon great drivers to serve our valued customers. High Country Transportation, Inc. only wants the best drivers on the road and we are willing to give good pay for hard working drivers. In addition to a good wage, all OTR trucks are late model Peterbilt, Kenworth and Volvo tractors equipped with APU units so drivers can be comfortable on their downtime. Three maintenance centers keep trucks and trailers in top running condition.
Dry Van Division:
Dry Van Drivers are based out of our Dallas, TX (Lancaster) terminal and run all 48 states with an emphasis on Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona. Drivers are home every 7-10 days depending on where they live. States we prefer to hire dry van drivers in are Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Utah, Idaho, Arizona and Colorado. Please call a recruiter for current pay scale in the dry van division. Trucks are governed at 62 mph pedal speed. 99% no touch freight.
Over-the-Road Dry Bulk/Hopperbottom:
Hopperbottom Drivers are based out of our Cortez, CO terminal and mostly run lanes in the Western 11 states and the Midwest. We do go all the way to the East Coast at times but usually return right back to the West. Drivers need to be prepared to run 48 states and be out for 2-4 weeks depending on where they live. Average length of haul in the hopperbottom division is 600 miles but there is usually minimal waiting to load and unload, 22% of the miles are empty (you are paid the same rate loaded or empty), and you almost never have to deal with a lumper or time definite appointment (there is usually a window when you have to load and unload). States we prefer to hire drivers out of are Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, Wyoming, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska. Drivers in the hopperbottom division earn a great mileage wage. This is a great trucking job with high miles and a minimum amount of loading and unloading hassle. Call a recruiter for details.
