Gaines Express | Truck Driving Jobs

Trucking Company Overview:

With a family history in trucking, Corey Gaines built Gaines Express on the notion that he wanted to pursue a new side of the trucking industry.  Forest Gaines (grandfather to Corey) started a van trucking company in 1947.  In a matter of years, Forest cultivated a successful business that illuminated infinite knowledge and insight into the world of transportation.  Having grown up around and working in all aspects of a trucking business since the age of 14, Corey knew immediately after graduating college in 2010 that he wanted to make his mark in the transportation industry as well. 

Corey saw an opportunity with a potential customer that was looking for flatbed specific trucking options and the wheels starting rolling.  He quickly set up the company in 2011, purchased two trucks and Gaines Express was born.  Since its creation, Gaines Express is now operating with 45 flatbed trucks and a realistic goal of adding 10+ trucks every year.  The aim is to reach 100 trucks so that we can competitively keep up with customer demands while also maintaining a manageable level of individual service.
