Content Sponsored by RBX Inc.

A Missouri-based truckload carrier is quietly garnering a reputation as a place where truckers can grow their careers while surrounded by a knowledgeable, driver-friendly support team.

Strafford, Missouri-headquartered trucking company RBX Inc. has been in business for 40 years and remains family-owned and operated to this day. Over the years, they’ve built a fleet of more than 200 trucks and 53’ dry van trailers with a network of customers throughout 24 states.

RBX has found remarkable success during decades of operation by treating truck drivers not like a number but instead like members of their own family. Since RBX was founded, leaders have worked hard to establish a driver-first company culture both in the office and out on the road. Each driver is supported by a skilled dispatch team that gets to know them as a person and provides support to ensure their success each day. The office team understands that when drivers succeed, the company as a whole succeeds.

RBX CEO Jim Keltner has worked hard over the years to make sure that the company treats drivers with respect and provides honest communication. The company has an open-door policy to ensure that any driver who has an issue can get it sorted out fast.

“We all put our pants on the same way. We’re all here to haul freight and make money,” Keltner said. “And people matter to us. That’s what matters to us. We take care of our people and we take care of our customers.”

As part of the company’s commitment to taking care of their drivers, RBX provides competitive pay, newer model equipment that is safe to drive, multiple bonus programs, 100% no touch dry van freight, health insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, and NO northeast or west coast runs. Other perks include a rider/pet policy, weekly direct deposit pay, and most drivers are home every 10 to 14 days, or even more frequently.
