Millis Transfer Company Overview

Millis company training

Millis Transfer, Inc began hauling freight in 1944 and has since grown to more than 800 tractors, 3,500 trailers, and an additional 100 owner operators. They are a dry-van carrier with most of their freight originating and terminating in the Eastern half of the United States, although nationwide service is available.

The majority of their freight hauling is based on regional or dedicated customer contracts. They have multiple terminals and drop yard locations throughout the eastern half of the country.

In order to keep up with company growth, they opened the Millis Training Institute in 1989 in Kennesaw, GA to more easily recruit and train drivers. In 1994, they opened another training facility in Trenton, OH. Ten years later they opened another Richfield, WI in 2004.

TruckingTruth's View On Preparing For Company-Sponsored Training

You can never bring too much paperwork with you. Anything that could prove employment history, relevant medical records, and anything else that is specific to your life should be taken with you. It's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it! The necessities include a valid Drivers License, original and non-laminated Social Security Card, and a Birth Certificate. Make a special note that you must study for and pass the CDL written exams in your home state to obtain your CDL driving permit before attending the Millis Transfer CDL school. Make sure you bring your permit with you.

Even though Millis Transfer does not require any endorsements such as HazMat, we still recommend you study for and pass the HazMat, tanker, and double/triple endorsements as future opportunities may require these endorsements.
