    Here is what some of our team members have to say:

    “After 5 years with Buchheit Logistics, I have been a company driver in both the van and end dump fleets and now, as an independent contractor with 2 trucks. I would have to say this is one of the best opportunities that I have ever been privileged to be part of. Being nominated by Buchheit and chosen by the Missouri Trucking Assoc. as a Driver of the Month for the entire state was not only an honor, but goes to show how being here at Buchheit Logistics is being part of a true family run operation. I would recommend Buchheit Logistics to anyone looking for a long-term opportunity in this industry.”

    – Bill M., Independent Contractor

    “I have worked for Buchheit for over 5 years. I have enjoyed my time driving for them in their van division. Buchheit Logistics treats you like family – not a number. You are home almost every weekend, and I get great miles. I average about 3000 miles a week! It is a great company to work for, and I hope to meet some new drivers soon.”

    – Tom T., Company Driver

    “I was recently asked why I decided to come back and drive for Buchheit.

    The two quick responses to come to mine are family and pride. Now let me go into further detail below.

    Let’s discuss the family atmosphere. In the short time I was here in 2017 I immediately was welcome to the company and treated with respect. It truly felt like a family atmosphere. In the matter of a few weeks I became acquainted with almost all the office personnel. They took the time to learn and call me by name. They actually had conversations with me so it never felt like I was just a number. Unfortunately I left for personal and family reasons. I knew immediately if I ever wanted to come back to driving this is where I wanted to be.

    Now let’s talk about pride. I grew up in Southeast Missouri and I know the Buchheit name. I’ve known the Buchheit name since I was a young man. So when I was given the original opportunity come here go to work I immediately pulled the trigger and applied. I like doing my job and doing that job well. I get to drive a truck with a unique color green that people all over the Midwest recognize. I get treated with respect and they genuinely care about my and my family’s well-being.

    They’re large enough to get me the freight I need but small enough and caring enough to know me by name and care enough to send me straight home in the event of a family emergency(which they have).

    I truly do enjoy working for Buchheit Logistics. I see that the company is trying to grow and is trying to get good quality drivers to help them achieve growth and customer service. I absolutely want to be part of that growth. I would recommend Buchheit Logistics to anybody who wants to be part of the family.”
