Job Description

At Nussbaum, our vision is to be purpose-driven in everything we do. We want to positively impact our drivers, employees, customers, partners, and those we meet along the way. This means we do more than just “show up.” As employee-owners, we own our actions and take a personal stake in our company’s success. We lead with faith and integrity. We put people and family first. It’s at our core, and it’s the reason so many people love coming to work here each day. Are you ready to join us?

Job Requirements

Key Skills

  • A lot of logic, organization, planning – lots of time-based calculations, finding the mix of keeping a truck moving but not so tight that all must go perfect, and we fail on the load
  • Flexibility – as plans break or change keep a level head and work on Plan B
  • Multi-tasking abilities. There are all kinds of loads, contingencies, appointments, to be balancing. Circumstances change continuously.
  • Creativity – think outside the box to take more freight, or how to move drivers around to get tricky loads delivered on time without violation HOS rules
  • Balancing the profitability and efficiency with the driver’s needs, performance, and style
  • Clear communication – when relaying info from nights to days, being able to communicate clearly is important. Communication with drivers is key and being able to talk them through situations.
