DON’T JUST FIND A JOB, BUILD A CAREERS

We want to be the LAST place you work.

 

First Choice is a company owned by a trucker family. We are specialists in automotive transportation and logistics. Since 1992 we have been committed to excellence in quality drivers. We know that we are only as good as our drivers.

WE ARE A TRUCKER FAMILY.

We know that OTR life has its challenges. We understand, because we have been there. We also know how to minimize the stress, such as letting you make your own appointments. You know the weather and the traffic. Who better than you to make the appointment?

WE ARE A FRIENDLY COMPANY.

At First Choice you will get to know your dispatcher. And your dispatcher will get to know you including your preferences and desires. Whether you like to go East, West, North or South or if you just want to be home for your son’s baseball game, we will work with you.

WE ARE A CARING COMPANY.

We listen. Have a suggestion? Have a complaint? You can always talk to us.

WE ARE A ELITE COMPANY.

We only work with the best drivers. If you feel you are among the best drivers in the industry, we want to talk to you. If you come to First Choice, we will treat you like one of the best drivers in the industry. We want you for the rest of your career.

WE ARE A SMALL COMPANY.

But we are big enough to build a career.
