As a family-owned business in the shipping industry, we understand how important quality time at home is, but also realize how difficult it can be to find. At Brakebush, we're looking to change that. While the pay is typically good, typical trucking jobs can keep drivers away from home and family for weeks at a time - a high price to pay. That's why our drivers have an opportunity to spend time at home every week, while still having access to plenty of the valuable work hours they need. We're a family-first company, and we want our drivers to be able to support their families and spend time with them too.


Brakebush drivers are provided with the most modern and well-maintained rigs in the business. Plus, we provide industry-leading logistics support to make your job as straightforward as possible. We only ask that you respect our customers and their products, professionally represent our company, and, above all else, drive safely.
