Jobs with Estes Express Lines

Estes Express Lines began service in Southwest Virginia during the Great Depression of 1931. This may not seem like it would have been the best time to start a business, but W.W.Estes saw the potential in the service and believed he could make a go of it. He bought a single, used Chevy truck and started hauling farm produce and supplies.

The fact that the truck didn't have a windshield or a driver's seat didn't stop him from doing what he knew would be a good business. Sitting on a packing crate behind the wheel of his truck, he went from farm to city picking up and delivering products and supplies.

Today, Estes is one of the fastest growing LTL and truckload companies in the country. With 13,000 employees and more than 30,000 tractors and trailers, Estes provides service to all 50 states, major markets such as Mexico and the Caribbean and all 10 Canadian provinces. They believe the dedication and quality of their employees and the service they provide is what sets Estes Express Lines apart from its competition.

By creating a supportive, safe and pleasant working environment, Estes gives its employees the tools they need to be successful and to grow with the company. Continually improving performance, service and equipment has allowed them to create customer loyalty that has kept Estes growing for over eight decades.
