Trusted Lines

Midwest Carriers’ fleet of tractor trailers come from the most trusted lineups in trucking equipment—Freightliner, International, Kenworth and Volvo tractors, and 53’ Air Ride Wabash, Great Dane and Utility space-saving reefer trailers.

Precision Refrigeration

We’re meticulous about quality. Whether we’re transporting meats, cheeses, produce, pizza or pharmaceuticals, our refrigerated trailers come with real-time monitoring and alerts.

Our operations team always knows if a door is open and what the temperature is in the front and rear of the trailer. This level of monitoring is what lets us reliably deliver temperature-sensitive products in optimal condition.

Dry Van Truckload

Efficient trucks keep costs down. We work with our trucking equipment manufacturers to spec the most efficient EPA SmartWay® certified tractors and aerodynamic trailers, equipped with ATDynamic trailer skirts and tails.

We achieve industry leading fuel mileage by driver training, a driver bonus program incentivizing fuel efficiency, full tractor aero packages, proper tractor building and specifications including cruise assist, and driving new equipment with the latest fuel efficiency technology.

We purchase trucks with the latest safety technology available

We strive to provide late-model and meticulously maintained equipment, along with intelligent trucking technology; reliably getting goods to destinations safely, on time. Most of our OTR trucks are equipped with refrigerators and inverters and are designed with driver comfort in mind, making our drivers’ jobs easier. Trucks are equipped with outward-facing cameras only.
