Daylight Transport – Why Work For Us?

Daylight Transport is a privately held expedited LTL transportation and logistics company headquartered in Long Beach, California. The company was founded in 1977 originally as an air freight company before perfecting a ground-based network that currently competes with air freight networks, offering deferred air transit times at standard truck rates. Daylight offers expedited LTL freight delivery across the U.S., and offers guaranteed time definite service in addition to air freight, volume, and truckload services nationally as well as full-service warehousing and logistics services in the California market.

Daylight Transport has approximately 400 employees and eight Service Centers throughout the United States.  Nationally recognized as one of Inbound Logistics’ Top 100 Motor Carriers and Los Angeles Business Journal's 100 fastest-growing companies four years in a row, Daylight Transport is one of Los Angeles Business Journal's 100 largest privately held companies.  A clear testament to superior customer service and corporate culture.  In 2017 Daylight Transport was a Mastio Quality Award Winner and Voted Top Overall Carrier.

An American success story with speed in our DNA

Daylight is an American success story. We were founded in 1977, when cross-country transit times averaged 7 to 15 days. Through innovations like two-driver sleeper teams, we brought this down to 2 to 3 days, coast to coast. Daylight has grown steadily over the past four decades and is now one of the nation’s leading expedited LTL carriers.

Built for speed and empowered to serve

Not only are we the nation’s fastest LTL carrier, coast to coast, we think fast and respond quickly. Instead of bureaucracy, we give you flexibility. Our people are empowered with both the knowledge and the authority to make decisions on your behalf, from line haul to accounting. We get you answers and, more importantly, action!

A career with Daylight Transport is a terrific opportunity and a rewarding experience, regardless of your particular skills or areas of professional expertise. This is a place where you can make a difference. Our talented team of executives, managers and staff have worked tirelessly to build the best freight transport service provider in the industry. Our growth, longevity and financial stability are the tangible results of those efforts. Be part of a company with a great vision for the future. We’re proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.


Our competitive salary and benefits package includes medical, dental, vision, long-term disability insurance, flexible spending accounts as well as vacation and matching 401(k).  We also offer voluntary benefits such as Legal Shield, Accident and Critical Care, life insurance, pet insurance and other employee perks!.
