Experience the Difference

COTC was founded by a couple of flatbed drivers 25 years ago running exclusively local and regional flatbed freight in the Pacific Northwest. We have been tarping, strapping, and throwing chains every day since. If it goes on a flatbed then we haul it across all 48 states and Canada on our lightweight aluminum Reitnouer trailers pulled by our fleet of Kenworth tractors.

Today, we are an over-the-road, irregular route flatbed trucking company offering industry leading driver pay and benefits while maintaining exceptional CSA scores. This means more freight, more reliability and more green lights as far as the road is long.

Our drivers have nominated us a Best Fleets to Drive For®, five years running, for providing the best workplace experience. We won competition for 2018 Best Fleets to Drive For Best Overall Fleet for Small Carrier and have been named to the Top 20 in the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 competitions.  COTC was designated a 2018 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon and 2015 Top Workplaces.

CHOOSE COTC TODAY, WE ONLY GET BETTER WITH AGE

Owned by Daseke Inc. and Operated by Former Flatbed Drivers
Rick Williams, CEO

I started as a flatbed driver, running for my Dad. I chose trucking because it seemed like the best way for me to make money to provide for my wife and two young children. Just like every driver out there I was frustrated because I was asked to run illegal. Completely exhausted, I would be loaded to run another load. When I did have home time I couldn’t transition into my home life because I was so exhausted. Frustration, and some would say stubbornness, drove me to quit driving. I wanted do it better. Better than my Dad, and better than every trucking company out there!

I look around and am so proud of the company today. Trucking is a difficult business, but the driving team is flexible and patient; and the internal staff understand the challenges the driving team face daily.

COTC is committed to the financial success; health and well-being; and a great home time for our driving team.
