Why Work with Us?

They say if you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life. We believe that’s exactly how our team should feel. We want them to know that they are a valued member of our company; not just an employee who is expected to follow orders.

At Spader Freight, we respect our associates who are on the job day in and day out. We appreciate their work with clients, warehouses, loading docks, and delivery personnel. They know our customers products and markets better than anyone. And we respect their impact on our business.

So it’s important to us that working together feels like the career choice they were always meant to make.
