Submit a Driver Application to Us

Behne Inc. is a small family-owned-and-operated trucking company, and we like to think of our drivers as part of our family. We welcome applications from anyone interested in over-the-road (OTR) trucking jobs. Many drivers have worked with the company for 10-15 years and even retired with us because of our friendly working environment and excellent benefits.

Our Drivers

We only hire drivers who prioritize safety, because the safety of your haul and everyone else on the road is paramount to us. Our drivers are also equipped with everything they need to complete the haul.

While most of our customers are in Minnesota, we work with brokers nationwide. We are willing and capable of handling your shipping anywhere from coast to coast.

Apply for a Trucking Job

Behne Inc. is looking for good drivers with flatbed and/or specialized trailer experience. We need drivers who are team players and work hard to earn money. Our current drivers have been with us for two to eight years; we also had a recently retired driver who had been with us for 10 years. Our philosophy is that we are a family, and everyone is important to the company.

Submitting your driver application permits us to access the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Pre-Employment Screening Program and HireRight for background checks.
