Look what TMC has to say about their company, and how DDA has been a trusted training partner of theirs for many years.

TMC was founded in 1972 and has grown into the largest privately held flatbed carrier in the nation. We haul a wide range of product with building materials, steel, lumber and pipe being the highest in volume. We also serve as a dedicated carrier for well known companies such as Alcoa, Griffin Pipe, U.S. Steel, John Deere, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Owens Corning, Weyerhaeuser and many others. We are proud of our reputation as an organization that strives for and achieves excellence in all aspects of our business. We currently employ 2,000 tractor trailer drivers across the nation, many living in Louisiana and Arkansas.

In 1993 we determined that we would need to recruit new drivers from schools in order to grow our fleet with the high quality drivers that we demand. About 70% of the new drivers we hire every year are new graduates of a truck driving school. For a number of years now a primary source of new drivers in Louisiana and Arkansas has been the Diesel Driving Academy schools in Shreveport, Baton Rouge and Little Rock. We are currently hiring in the areas served by DDA and would expect to put on at least 60 new drivers from Louisiana and Arkansas this year.
