Agri-Fresh Inc

Job Description 

 

At Agri-Fresh, we see trucking differently.

First of all, we treat our professional drivers just like we treat our customers. Meaning, we focus on their needs and find ways to help and provide value to them. We do this because it’s the right thing to do, but we also realize that shippers and experienced drivers have a lot of options. We want to be a company that shippers and drivers want to work with.

We are a family-run company and have built a successful and rapidly growing business by treating people right.

Agri-Fresh is a specialized refrigerated carrier. We specialize in moving fresh produce from California and Arizona to the Canadian Prairies. We are based in Lockport, Manitoba; however, we can hire drivers based in most areas of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.

We are proud to be delivering fresh and healthy every day, and since we are specialists, there are a lot of benefits for our drivers. Rather than doing a lot of picks and drops throughout the day, or even day after day, our drivers leave Winnipeg (or another departure point) and don’t touch their load until they reach their destination. This means that your time is freed up to do what you love…drive a lot of miles!

It is worth mentioning that the lanes from the Canadian Prairies to California and Arizona are some of the most beautiful and enjoyable routes there are in our industry. Plan your resets to take advantage of the beauty and adventure that California and Arizona have to offer – especially in winter!

If you would like to join our family, here are the requirements:

You:

  • Have a Class 1A driver’s license with a minimum of one-year articulated experience.
  • Are able to enter the United States.
  • Enjoy driving for extended periods of time, approximately ten to twenty-one days at a time.
  • Enjoy planning your schedules and routes, using an atlas, e-logs, and other trip-planning aids.
  • Have some mountain driving experience as it is considered an asset.
  • Have a clear criminal record check.
  • Have a Drivers Abstract with three or fewer violations.
  • Are excellent communicators.

If selected, you will enter Agri-Fresh’s In-House Training Program. The program is tailored to you and is usually 2 to 3 days, depending on your experience.

Here is the breakdown of our Total Compensation & Benefits package:

  • Starting rate of $0.55 per mile with more than two years experience.
  • An Assigned Truck
  • Average 11,000 miles per month, with the opportunity for more.

  • Detention and layover pay.
  • Chain up pay.
