About Leavitt’s Freight Service
Leavitt’s Freight Service was established in 1958 by three brothers—Doug, Dean, and Dewey Leavitt—and is still privately held. The Company was founded on three philosophies: Honesty, Integrity, and Family.
At Leavitt’s, we see the trucking industry from a distinctive point of view... yours. We think like you because we used to be you. Many of our managers and office staff began their careers as drivers, including driver managers, the safety manager, training personnel, orientation instructors, maintenance personnel, and our recruiting staff. We still clearly remember what it's like to hop into that rig for the first time in a new job.
Leavitt’s provides you opportunities you won't find anywhere else: industry leading training, great pay and home time, top of the line equipment, and a home with the best drivers in flatbed trucking.
Thank you for considering Leavitt’s Freight Service for your next driving job.
