Kool Pak° is a refrigerated carrier providing cold chain management services, LTL, truckload, and pool load services. Our drivers are trained to manage mixed temperature freight and understand the proper use of bulkheads. We're Oregon-based with headquarters in Lake Oswego and our main warehouse in Clackamas. We also have temperature-controlled warehouses in Kent, Washington; Ontario, California; Patterson, California; and Langley, British Columbia.
Your driver opportunities are unique: every new hire is an investment with extensive training on our claims and load management processes that result in our achieving and maintaining one of the lowest claims rates in the industry. You'll enjoy work relationships based on our Company Values. Our actions, leadership and work culture embrace these values every day.
Safety is #1
We have a Safety Director and Maintenance Manager to keep you safe. And, you'll get the training and resources you need to be successful. Kool Pak° was awarded the 2013 Fleet Safety Grand Champion by the Oregon Trucking Association (OTA).
All Drivers use electronic logs ensuring compliance with hours of service. Our Maintenance Manager facilitates 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.
Our commitment to customer service creates a work culture where communication is encouraged and expected. We provide each Driver with a company cell phone as well as on-board communication via PeopleNet. Drivers can contact the Dispatch Team for scheduling help and Drivers are directly linked to our Claims Manager, who provides support for load management issues. We provide phone numbers for the KOOL PAK° Management team.
Our Drivers are required to have a clean CDL and at least one year of reefer experience.
Local: we maintain local fleets in Portland-Metro, Seattle-Metro, and Los Angeles-Metro areas. Local Drivers handle LTL deliveries and pick-ups in their designated metro-area. An occasional Shuttle (from one of our Terminals to another) or Regional run 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): the vast majority of our Company Drivers are Regional OTR performing 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: our 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.
