TMC Transportation began in Des Moines, IA in 1972 with only 6 trucks. Today, TMC Transportation is the largest and most successful privately held flatbed trucking company in the United States, operating throughout North America. In addition to accepting experienced truck drivers, TMC Transportation offers their own CDL training program, and also hires inexperienced drivers who recently graduated from an approved truck driving school. TMC is still led by its founder, and is employee-owned, through shares gifted to the employees.
TMC accepts CDL students from a limited area, mostly in the Northern Midwest. Their hiring area normally encompasses most of the U.S. from Texas east, but fluctuates frequently based on need.
For those in the hiring area, TMC is an excellent and well-established option for drivers looking to get into flatbedding.
TMC also has limited opportunities for drivers living in: Western Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
TMC's CDL training facility is located in Des Moines, IA.
For students who live in the specified training area, TMC offers an excellent opportunity for those prospective drivers interested in flatbed, and 90% of their drivers get home every weekend for an average of 45-50 hours at a time.
A passport is not necessary but encouraged after training.
Air Brakes and Combinations are required; Hazmat is encouraged
