Founded in 1981, Dayton Freight Lines is a privately owned less-than-truckload (LTL) freight carrier headquartered in Dayton, Ohio. With 44 Service Centers in the Midwest, Dayton Freight offers shippers one- or two-day service to thousands of points throughout an 11-state area. And via a network of strategic partners, the company can serve all of the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
Within the past year, Dayton Freight has opened Service Centers in Mentor and Gallipolis, Ohio; Lowell, Indiana; and Lakeville, Minnesota. Substantial investments are already in place for 2013, with the addition of a Service Center in Joliet, Illinois.
The Journal of Commerce, a trade journal that focuses on transportation and logistics, has ranked Dayton Freight as the 17th largest LTL carrier in the country, and one of the fastest growing. Dayton Freight has consistently garnered awards from some of the largest companies in America, including Lowe’s, Scotts, Moen, Navistar, and Johnson Controls.
The company is always looking for qualified individuals to join its organization of more than 2,900 employees. The greatest need is for drivers and maintenance technicians; and there are also plenty of openings in operations, management, safety, and information technology.
Dayton Freight has learned that the values, tradition, teamwork, and leadership taught in the military fit well with the company’s culture of excellence and professionalism. Recently, the company attended RecruitMilitary career fairs in Columbus and St. Louis to meet men and women with military backgrounds.
