They are based in Steinbach MB.I spoke to one of their drivers on the CB he said he was happy there.They mainly do flatbeds and I know they got some new units.They had a foriegn driver program but dont know if they still run it.

Cheers Neil, thanks for that. They must still be doing the Foreign Driver program, cos I got an e-mail from one of their guys saying he was interested in me coming over. I just needed to know what they were like to work for before committing myself.
If anyone else has any views on Big Freight, I would greatly appreciate it.:thumbsup:

Thought you were a trolly dolly for Loblaws ? Want to know about Big Freight get yourself onto Trucknet and ask on the Ex-Pat forum .
Personally if I were looking for step/flat deck work Timeline or Q Line out of Saskatoon would be preferable . Make sure you get paid well for tarping , plus all picks and drops .

Cheers FTTM, left Loblaw for family reasons. Timeline are not taking on at the minute. I will try Q line. Thanks again.

No problem.Another couple of suggestions for you if dont fancy Big Frieght: Searcy are a flatbed company out of Winnipeg they do LMOs or they did LMOs ,I knew a brit driver who went there.Another one to look at is Transx ,they are doing LMOs out of their Winnipeg terminal and have a flatbed division.

Fair comment , shame you're not landed status as we have a vacancy on cryo tankers in Regina . Searcy are part of Bison so would be worth a look .

Triline also do flat bads as well but I think they are based in Alberta....somebody posted it here before

Re: Big Freight
 
Thanks guys, Just got a message from Searcys, they are only after owner operators at the minute. I will have a look at Triline. Thanks again.

Re: Big Freight
 
Tri-Line are in Calgary, Edmonton & Winnipeg, part of 3 or 4 more companies, don't mention LMO's on their website.
They were on Kijiji advertising not so long back for SuperB curtainsider drivers.
See them in Lafarge loading plasterboard quite often.
DeckX advertising all the time in Calgary.
Give them a call, see if they have LMO's.

Re: Big Freight
 
If you wouldnt mind haul grain with super B´s....D J Knoll should have some LMOs available...

Re: Big Freight
 
Thanks Milan, tried DJ Knoll & they are just waiting for some LMOs.
