Message From The CEO, Rick Williams

flatbed trucking company ceo

Thank you for taking the time to visit Central Oregon Truck Company here on the web. I’ve been with this company since it started roughly 20 years ago, and I’ve participated in the industry for well beyond that. Over the years I’ve served in nearly every capacity as both an employer and an employee.  Suffice it to say, I’ve seen a lot in my years and can say without hesitation that Central Oregon Truck Company has some of the finest drivers, planners, sales staff, maintenance crews, safety instructors, and recruiting and training personnel in the industry. Don’t let our name fool you though; while we started here in beautiful Central Oregon, we operate and employ in all 48 states nationwide as well as Canadian provinces.

Our operations department is, hands down, one of the best in the industry. They work tirelessly for our customers and our drivers every day of the week, doing their level best to meet the needs of all involved. I don’t care who you compare them to, I think you’ll find they’re second to none at producing superior results no matter what scenario you throw at them.

While they work behind the scenes, our administration, human resources, recruiting, safety/training and maintenance professionals are equally tireless in their efforts to support our operations, drivers, and our daily success in every way. Truly, this is how I believe an effective transportation company works: each department and person working towards a common goal. For us that goal is to provide safe, reliable, and superior service to our customers as well as a great place for our employees to call home.

As an organization we know that good is never good enough. Consequently, we search daily for ways to improve and refine our services, processes, and personnel as well as our industry’s public image. In all, we are an organization with many different people working efficiently to provide the highest level of service and quality possible to our customers.

Our management team collectively holds decades of experience in the transportation industry and has been carefully selected based on their diverse skills and expertise. Many of us–myself included–have been out on the road ourselves at some point in our careers. We understand our business and work hard every day to ensure this is the best place to work, build a career, and fulfill our clients shipping needs.

We strive to earn our customers’ respect and admiration every day. Thank you for considering Central Oregon Truck Company as your service provider or potential employer. We look forward to having the opportunity to earn your business, respect, and admiration. Give us a call today; I think you’ll quickly see what I’m talking about.
