DALLAS, TX…. 2022 has been a year of breakout growth for Standard Logistics.  After doubling their customer base in just a year, Standard Logistics just keeps on growing, and in particular, in the Southeast United States.  That being said, the company plans to continue to expand their fleet of  trucks and 320 drivers aggressively to serve their expanding revenue.  This has created many high paying truck driving jobs within the company. 

President Volker Bargenda stated, “Our growth over the  past year has proven not only that our logistics and transportation services are in high demand, but also that our focus on our drivers and company culture are what set us apart.  Our people are our greatest asset, and our future success will be fueled by the power of our united, centralized fleet as we continue to invest in our capabilities as a full-scale logistics provider.”

Standard Logistics is hiring both local and regional drivers.  Local drivers are paid hourly, while regional drivers are paid by the mile.  The company requires 1 year of experience with a good driving record. Local drivers should be located within a reasonable commute of one of Standard Logistics’ freight hubs and regional drivers can be located anywhere along company freight lanes.  Standard Logistics hubs and lanes exist in the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Texas, and California.  The trucks are late model Freightliner Cascadias and Internationals with Cummins engines.

Standard Logistics is a subsidiary of Standard Industries, a privately held global industrial company that has over 20,000 employees in over 80 countries.  They are the house carrier for another Standard Industries subsidiary, GAF, North America’s largest roofing and waterproofing manufacturer. 

Standard Logistics operates four distinct fleets.    Shingles and other building materials are hauled by the Flatbed Fleet from GAF plants and warehouses, along with other customers, to distributors.  There is also a small Van Fleet that hauls building materials and other building products. The Tanker Fleet hauls asphalt, limestone, and other raw materials.  While some tanker loads don’t require HazMat certification, depending on the location, the company requires drivers to have or obtain it to allow for more operational flexibility.  The company will help you obtain both and pay for it if you choose to get them.

Standard Logistics is an employee driven company. They strive to create an inclusive work environment for employees and drivers, where they are engaged and come to work feeling like they have a great job.  Drivers enjoy having their work week planned in advance,  so they know what their schedule is.  Being a part of the Standard Industries family, Standard Logistics can offer career advancements to employees and drivers alike.  Maybe at some point, you would like to get out from behind the wheel and get behind a desk, becoming a driver trainer, safety director, or dispatcher, they can make it happen.

The company is very proud of the awards they have received: Home Depot’s Partner of the Year – 2021 Medium Size Flatbed Category; and GAF’s Partner of Choice 2017-2021. 

Randy Bargfrede, COO of GAF said, “We’ve had a long, successful partnership with Standard Logistics and their significant growth in the past year can be attributed to their rich investment in their drivers and their commitment to customer service.”
