  • WHY NORTHWEST?

    BEYOND GREAT BENEFITS

    We deliver top-notch safety programs, great compensation, and terrific benefits – all in an unbeatable atmosphere. At Northwest, we offer the whole package – excellent wages and benefits, industry-wide recognition as a safety leader, state-of-the-art equipment and a fun, friendly working environment. That’s why we are one of the fastest-growing professional transportation companies on the road.

    The safe way is our only way.

    Award winning, industry leading, and better every year – when it comes to safety, Northwest doesn’t cut any corners. All our drivers receive a comprehensive orientation and ongoing training to ensure they can deliver to our and our customers’ high standards. They also work with the best equipment in the business.

    Northwest Tank Lines was one of the first carriers to implement anti-roll stability devices in its vehicles, and our emergency response plan was the first of its kind in western Canada when it was established in 1979. Northwest has also been an innovator around – and strong supporter of – emergency response and accident prevention for over 30 years. A National Tank Truck Carriers Safety Award winner, we are the only verified Responsible Care partner in western Canada.

    We pay a premium because we value our people.

    In terms of safety, we put our money where our mouth is by rewarding conscientious driving. You will receive up to $3,000 a year just for driving safely and free of violations, and if you’re an owner-operator we’ll provide you with up to $3,000 a year for every truck in your fleet!

    We also provide our owner-operators with a level of fuel protection that is unheard of in the industry.

    Add all this to your benefits – which include life insurance, 100% dental, prescription drug coverage, disability and more – and you’ll see that we offer the best to keep the best.
