About This Job at Mercer Transportation

It’s your truck and your future—Mercer Transportation wants to help you make the most of your business. With tons of flatbed freight available, we’ve got big opportunities for professional owner operators. Take advantage of the surplus of open deck freight and get help from a load coordinator whenever you need it.
