Welcome to Smokey Point Distributing!

Smokey Point Distributing (SPD) is an OTR company that specializes in high-value, aerospace freight and freight consolidation and we are looking for Professional Team and Solo Flatbed Drivers to add to our team.

There are very few combinations as powerful as a top of the line truck and team of drivers dedicated to logging miles. That is why it is our highest priority to provide you, the driver team, with an excellent experience. We understand that our drivers are the backbone of our company and we continually work to improve our facilities, equipment, and policies to ensure that you feel valued. Which is why we have such a low turnover rate and great driver retention!

Our Trucks:

Our trucks come loaded with (among other things):

an APU



24 inch LED TV

DirecTV Satellite system (which we pay for)

The DirecTV package includes a basic package plus HBO, Cinemax, NFL Sunday Ticket, and the NFL channel so you won't miss any of your favorite shows or football games just because you're on the road!

We have a variety of makes, models, and colors with both automatic and 13-speed transmissions.

Our trucks are governed at 70 mph, allowing you to drive more miles each day.

Our Pay:

Our brand new, industry-changing Salary Pay Plus (SPP) program is available to new-hire solo and team drivers:

Team Drivers:

Salary for team drivers with the required flatbedding experience pays $3,098 per pay period ($6,197 per month; $74,370 per year; based on $.335/mi) PLUS mileage-based accessorials and PTO. In plain terms our teams make .67cpm/150k year.

Raises of $1,188 plus a penny per mile upon annual review for the next 7 years.

Solo Drivers:

Salary for solo experienced flatbedders (2+ yrs of recent flatbed experience) pays $2,673 per pay period ($5,346 per month; $64,152 annually; based on $.54/mi) PLUS mileage-based accessorials and PTO. Which brings you to over 65k a year first year with us.

Those without recent flatbed experience (within the last 3-4 years), will begin at a salary of $2,524 per pay period ($5,049 per month, $60,588 annually; based on $.51/mi) PLUS mileage-based accessorials and PTO. Which brings you to over 62k a year first year with us.

Raises of $1,100+ upon annual review.


We have a four day orientation Monday through Thursday paying $135 per day minus taxes, which is paid to you via direct deposit Friday. Additionally, we provide your own motel room and a company van the class can share for the week.

The Extras:

SPD offers both rider and pet policies with no waiting period (with proper documentation, call for details).

You will have the freedom to choose your own routes and where to fuel (we allow up to a 2% variance, call for details).

After 30 days, you will qualify for full medical, dental, vision, and life insurance, which is free for the basic package. Affordable upgrade options and family plans are also available.

After 6 months, you will qualify for our 401k program, for which we match up to 4%. This is comparable to a Fortune 500 type of 401k because you are vested from day 1.

Come find out why we are a 2017 and 2018 Best Fleet to Drive For!
