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."

Sign up for one of the following job types:

1) Regional-Upper Midwest

 As a Regional driver, we guarantee you will never be more than a day's drive from home.  Our region includes Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and sometimes a relay back and forth on I-80 in Nebraska.  Most of our regional drivers are home every weekend for at least 36 to 48 hours.  100% No touch freight, 80% drop & hook to keep you moving.  Because we are a family company where you are a name - a real person - and not a number, and have so much good freight, we are flexible enough to meet nearly every need. If you prove yourself to be one of our best drivers, you have a chance at a promotion here. You will enjoy our full benefits package. We will do everything possible to help you succeed here. We even have one option, depending on where you live, where you tell us when you want to run, and we will make it work. That's right, you set your own schedule."

2) System

All of the drivers at WTL run the upper Midwest, but our system drivers can get a longer load out of the region, too. Most of these longer loads go to the West Coast, the Rocky Mountain States, and Georgia. No East Coast freight. The vast majority of this freight is drop and hook and 100% no touch.

3) Team Drivers

This job is designed to offer team drivers the benefits of longer loads as well as good home-time. This fleet handles loads throughout our system with a heavy emphasis on shipments to and from California. Team Drivers operate Pro Stars with double bunks.

Team Drivers Wage and Benefit Package:
Guaranteed 18,000 miles per Month! Most get many more!

4) Owner/Operators

If you own your own truck and want to join a program that understands your needs as an independent contractor, come join the Wenger team. Owner/Operators Wage and Benefit Package paid for ALL miles, loaded or empty, $5,000 sign on bonus. You must call to get updated weekly rates. Plate paid for 1st year.

5) DRIVER TRAINER- $1,100 per week salary plus .02 cpm safety bonus, so you have time to actually teach.
