From the Desk of Mike Smith:

Dear potential Smith Trucking Driver, 

Below is a snap-shot of where we began over 75 years ago and what we have to offer our drivers today! You could say we have come a long way from where we began! 

I want to extend a personal invitation to you to do your homework and check us out, read our reviews, talk to our drivers when you see them fueling up next to you or sitting in the truckers lounge. They really are the best source of how it really is to be apart of Smith Trucking! 

Then give us a call and talk to Stacy our recruiter (and my wife) she will tell you like it is and give you no B.S., that is how we operate here. We keep it simple and straight forward. We want you to start driving and in a short time realize that you can have a successful career here at Smith Trucking because when you succeed we all succeed!!

Be safe out there,

Mike Smith

From the Desk of Mike & Stacy Smith:

Dear Truck Driver, 

In the next 5 minutes, I will let you in on a something that has helped over 140+ Drivers earn better wage and receive the highest degree of respect - something you deserve as a trucker.

There is a PROVEN WAY to have the home-time you want, make the wage you deserve and so much more... Never miss you children's events, or have your spouse mad on you for not spending enough time at home... 

I'm not only going to show you how you can you EARN more, but also have the relief that you're in control of your finances, relationship with loved ones... basically you completing you Trucking Life Goals.

It all started with my Grampa back in 1946…

Here is a photo of him back when he used to haul grain and livestock, and doing corn shelling for local farmers. 

My purpose in sharing Grampa Joe is to let you know that trucking is in our blood. It’s a legacy that started by him and was carried by his son, Phil Smith and continues with his children Pat, Mike and JoAnne all owners who are active in the day to day operations. 

My father, brother, and I all drove before we moved full time into managing a growing trucking company. We know what it's like to be on the road, we have delivered to a lot of the same places we still go to this day. This experience has given us the unique ability to run Smith Trucking from a truckers point of view. 

Now that you know a little about how we got started let me share with you the benefits you can get when you become part of Smith Trucking...

Here is just the tip of the iceberg of what 
you'll get with us…
