Roadlink Express is a family owned and operated asset-based carrier headquartered in Ham Lake, MN with 45 years of industry experience. We specialize in transporting powersports, operating a robust fleet including 53’ standard dry vans as well as our innovative double deck dry vans. We provide nationwide service but primarily run in the midwest, south, southeast and northwest.
We're small enough to know you personally but big enough to offer established, consistent customer freight to keep you making money without interruption, and without ever worrying about getting paid and paid correctly. You'll always have quality equipment and an environment committed to safety, with the freedom to choose how you run.
Competitive Pay for both company drivers and owner-operators. Ask recruiter for a detailed breakdown.
No Forced Dispatch. With Roadlink, you have the freedom to choose your lanes, load types, miles and home time. Our OTR drivers can typically expect to be out 7-10 days; more if you choose.
Home time customized to the individual driver. You can choose to be home 2 days, 3-4 days, or longer and there's no specific time out requirement before you get home and for how long. Plus you're not locked into specific routes, schedules or home time so you can change it up as needed. *Talk to recruiter about what you're looking for (home time, where you want to run, etc.) and we'll make sure we can meet your requirements BEFORE you decide to come on-board. AND we actually do what we say we'll do!
When you ask our drivers what really sets us apart, they'll tell you it's the laid back and stress free work environment and freedom. We support you and are there when you need us but we don't micro-manage. You're free to talk with any of our current drivers before deciding if Roadlink is the right fit for you. We're 100% transparent, no surprises once you're on-board.
All new/late model, well-maintained tractors and trailers.
Easy, light, driver-friendly year round freight. We have no touch, pre-loaded drop & hook freight as well as live load/unload, and most loads are not time-sensitive. For loads that are time-sensitive, our first priority is always driver safety.
