From the desk of the

Director of Recruiting,

Caitlin Heyl Muhlbauer:

Dear Professional Driver,

First off, I want to say THANK YOU for visiting our page.

I understand there are thousands of other places you could be right now and I am honored you are here.

Now, please take a few minutes to read this letter.

My Grandfather, Donald Heyl, started this company back in 1949 with just one gravel truck. One of the major commodities Don started hauling was watermelons from the Southern US to Canada.

He continued to expand the business throughout the 70s and 80s, and it was at this time that 4 of his sons joined the family company - Roger, Alan, Scott, and David. Roger retired in 2016, David remains involved in Operations, and Alan is the current CEO.

By the early 90’s, the company had grown to 91 trucks with terminals in Akron, IA, and Sioux Falls, SD. Fast forward to today, and we are operating over 500 company trucks and around 35 Owner Operators. We now also have terminals in Estherville, IA; Edinburg, TX; Zephyrhills, FL; and Okotoks, AB.

Some of my most cherished memories as a child include those spent at our terminal in Akron - stopping into the watermelon shed, taking a ride around the yard in a truck, or stopping in to say hello to our office staff and mechanics.

During my visits, I remember being in awe of my father’s work ethic and leadership - core values of which were passed down from my Grandfather.

There’s something else, though, that originated in my Grandfather that has passed down to each generation, and that is a true passion for this industry.

Above: Founder, Don Heyl with his Diamond T at the Akron, IA terminal.

My Grandfather was a true trucker and the decision to come off the road was one of the most difficult of his life.

The passion and drive he has for trucking has been the key and backbone in building our company culture.

We want to share that with each of you, and we want you to share your story with us as well.

We want to hear where you came from, where you're at now, and where you want to be in the future - and we want to help you get there!

What are you waiting for?! Come join our growing family!

Here Is Just a Glimpse of What You'll Get As a Part of Our Team!


Exceptional Base Pay, Benefits, and Bonus!

As an experienced driver, your base pay (depending on your driving experience and fleet) could start anywhere from 54-56 CPM! You'll also see 1cpm raises in as little as 3-6 months. In addition, you could earn up to 3 CPM in monthly mileage, safety, and performance bonuses! We also offer detention pay, layover pay, and a referral bonus of up to $2200 per referral! Each year you're with us, we will also pay out a bonus to celebrate your Years of Service with Heyl!

For our friends up North, we also add an additional exchange rate surcharge on all miles to help compensate for the difference in currencies.


Top-Of-The-Line Equipment Only!

You're going to look GREAT in one of our fully-loaded Kenworth T680s or Freightliner Cascadias! All of our trucks are 2019 and newer and come equipped with a Thermo King TriPac Evolution APU, a Tundra 1500W inverter, 3.1 cubic foot refrigerator, BlueTree electronic log system, and SiriusXM Radio! You'll FEEL great about your equipment as it gets serviced in one of our full service, state-of-the-art shops, which we have at each of our terminals. As a Heyl team member, you will also be offered health insurance benefits, a 401k plan, and paid vacation!


Excellent Lanes and Home Time!

Come join one of our growing Regional, Dedicated, or Over the Road fleets! With hiring areas across the U.S. and Canada, we have a variety of lanes that can get you home weekly and even long haul freight that will still help you see consistent home time. For our friends who want to stay out longer, we can accommodate that as well! We are dedicated to you and will help you get home to your loved ones regularly all while getting the miles you deserve!

*Exact lanes and fleet availability vary by location.


Family-Like Support Staff!

As a Heyl team member, you will be assigned a dedicated driver manager who will work alongside you every step of the way! Each of our shops house a full maintenance team and we also have back office staff available 24/7 who will help keep you rolling. You will love your time on the road with your companion through our pet and passenger policies, as well as your down time at our terminals in our driver lounges. Come join our fun atmosphere and accepting culture!

Family Owned and Operated!

Being family-owned for nearly 75 years, we understand the importance of family values. We assure you that we will help cater to your home time needs so that you don’t miss out on the important things in life.

Most of our fleets offer lanes that get our drivers home weekly, but we also have opportunities for our drivers who don’t mind staying out longer!
