Drive with Foodliner
Foodliner is the largest bulk food grade carrier and a Transport Topic Top 100 carrier. Foodliner is committed to the customer first and has been since 1958. They are part of the McCoy Group, which operates out of Dubuque, Iowa. Foodliner trusts DriveCo to help students get their CDL, and we work with any new hire for Foodliner that comes to DriveCo to finish their training. Drivers will train at DriveCo for two weeks and receive 80 hours of one-on-one training.
To be able to haul food, there are specific requirements that all equipment must follow. With a fleet of 800 trucks and 1,600 trailers, Foodliners’ trucking equipment follows these rules and goes the extra mile. Foodliner’s trailers are fully stainless steel to maintain food safety. The trucks used for Foodliner all come with SkyBitz, which helps you keep track of your trailer when it is not connected. Other features include toll transponders, lane departure warnings, and electronic load dispatching for a better workload.
