MOUNTAIN CITY, TN…. “We will operate our business in a manner that brings glory to God in all we do and with everyone we come in contact with.”  This is the mission statement of Christian-based Danny Herman Trucking, located in the mountains of Eastern Tennessee.

Danny Herman Trucking invites drivers of all faiths and beliefs to come to work at their company.  If you like long haul, this is the place for you.  The company specializes in single source and time sensitive, just in time freight with service throughout the USA and Mexico, utilizing a significant amount of driver teams.  The average length of haul at Danny Herman Trucking is 1,450 miles.  Lanes go to points in the Southeast (except Florida), Texas, Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Nevada.  It is all dry freight and drivers are loaded both ways.  There is tons of freight for teams and solos, most of which is time sensitive.

Danny Herman Trucking is hiring company driver teams, solos, trainers, and trainees, as well as leasing owner-operator teams and solos.  COO Blake Grindstaff stated, “We have launched a new pay package for our drivers and try not to create confusion in our compensation system.  The pay is the same mileage rate on all lanes, with additional pay for experienced drivers, and includes quarterly and yearly safety bonuses.”  The company treats and pays drivers well as they have about half the driver turnover as most long haul carriers.

Danny Herman Trucking was founded in 1964 by Danny Herman with a single truck.  Danny Herman was always focused on faith and family and living by the Golden Rule. The company hosts several annual events for employees and their families that are more like family reunions than corporate get togethers.  They are also very active in their local community. 

As a testament to their faith, Danny Herman Trucking has scriptures on the back of each of their trailers and each week offers prayer and Chapel at all of their terminals for those who wish to attend. 

President Joe Herman says, “We take great pride in being honest and providing a good company culture, with no excuses.  Give us a chance and see what we can do for you.”  For more information, call 800-250-8401.
