Being a trucker is about way more than getting goods from point A to point B. Being a trucker means being fiercely independent, full-of-grit, and having a drive to see the world.
Nowdays, big corporate conglomerates are trying to turn drivers into mindless drones that get left on the road for weeks on end, never even knowing when they’ll see home again, but here at Basin Western we still remember that it was the truckers who built this country.
We’re building our company to be the most driver-centric trucking company in the West.
We’ve gone back to everything it really means to be a trucker and have built our business around that. Truck drivers are the heart, soul, and life-blood of any trucking company. We’ve built everything to make your job as enjoyable as possible without squashing your freedom and independence as a real truck-driver.
Our Mission is to create the most driver-centric trucking company, and to remind the industry what it really means to be a trucker.
