Wenger Truck Line | Truck Driving Jobs

Trucking Company Overview:

1st Class from the 1st Day, Every Day, ALL the WAY!

In 1946, Marion (Bud) Murray began a family-owned trucking operation in Davenport, Iowa. The company had only a few trucks, serving Midwest shippers that needed less-than-truckload or truckload coverage on a regional basis. By listening to their customers, Marion and Robert built Murray Enterprises into a diversified shipping corporation, offering customers total distribution service.

Wenger Truck Line

Wenger Truck Line, Inc. is still a family owned and operated company today. We operate 100 of our own trucks in addition to many owner-operators who have joined the Wenger team. We are in need of experienced drivers and owner-operators who have a minimum of one-year, verifiable experience, conduct themselves professionally and care about the trucking industry. We believe professional drivers have one of the most important jobs in this country, as:

"Truckers Make the World go Around."
