Company Drivers

At heart, we’re a company founded and run by dyed-in-the-wool truckers—we understand the unique challenges and rewards that define a lifelong career behind the wheel. And we make a habit of only sending our drivers out with the best resources and vehicles. That’s why we were able to invest in top-quality equipment while others suffered through the recession. Simply put, the WEL Driver Advantage pairs long-term financial security with a young fleet and a driver-first mentality.
