"You always know where you stand with Kool Pak. The company is the same as when it opened up in 1984. I love the challenges of LTL and the time crunch, keeps me on my toes!"  — Mike Briggs

Kool Pak° headquarters are in Oregon with temperature-controlled warehouses in Clackamas, Oregon; Kent, Washington; Ontario, California; Patterson, California; and Langley, British Columbia. We encourage our drivers to be the best in the industry by rewarding safe, efficient practices with incentives that promote safety, on-time service, reduced fuel consumption, tractor maintenance and training. Kool Pak° benefits include:

  • extensive training and development opportunities
  • employee recognition and rewards
  • electronic logs

  • MPG bonus
  • safety bonus

Our Safety Director and Maintenance Manager facilitate the repair process whether at a Kool Pak° Terminal or over-the-road. The majority of our tractors are maintained via full-service lease through Penske, ensuring reliable, timely repair. All drivers use electronic logs to ensure compliance with hours of service and receive a company cell phone as well as on-board communication via PeopleNet. Drivers can contact the Dispatch Team for scheduling help and the Claims Manager for support for load management issues. We provide phone numbers for the KOOL PAK° Management team.

Driver Opportunities

Drivers must have a clean CDL and at least one year of reefer experience. Our Drivers receive extensive training including management of mixed temperature freight, understanding the proper use of bulkheads and on our industry-leading claims program. Drivers enjoy work relationships based on our Company Values. Our actions, leadership and work culture embrace these values every day.

Local: we maintain local fleets in the Portland, Seattle and Los Angeles Metro areas. Local Drivers handle LTL deliveries and pick-ups in their designated area. Occasional Shuttle (from one of our Terminals to another) or Regional runs might be available or necessary, although most Local Drivers are home nightly.

Shuttle: drivers transport freight between Kool Pak° Terminals on set schedules.

Regional Over-the-Road (OTR): most Company Drivers are Regional OTR with multi-stop, mixed temperature (or LTL) deliveries and pick-ups throughout the seven Western States. We dispatch trips weekly on a set schedule. Most Regional OTR Drivers can take their hours-of-service reset at home, unless requested otherwise. Regional OTR Drivers can, based on personal and business need, work as a Local Driver or a Shuttle Driver to allow additional home time as needed.

Transcontinental: transcontinental routes are ideal for a driving team. Eastbound loads tend to be multi-stop, mixed temperature (LTL). Return or westbound loads tend to be truckloads. Our Regional OTR Drivers will also have occasional opportunities, based on business need, to travel east.
