Driver Testimonials

I have worked for Mad River Transportation since 2008. You are not a number here. To them I am Alan W, not truck #12345. This also means you can talk to everyone at anytime; Mad River has a true open door policy and that makes me very happy. Along with good miles and the home time you need, come vacation time, Holiday pay, and personal days. I wish I had started working for this company a long time ago!
– Alan W

I started with Mad River Transportation in September of 2006 as a road driver getting good miles. I ran OTR for 2 years, moved over to the flatbed division, then took a position as a day cab driver on a dedicated account that I run to this day. The office and garage personnel of this small family oriented company work with you to help with anything from appointments to truck repairs in a timely manner.
