|Eastern is becoming one of the largest Flatbed carriers in the North East! (June 2017)
Eastern Freightways started with ONE Flatbed driver in July of 2010. Today we operate one of the largest Flatbed fleets based in the Northeast! We primarily haul building materials throughout New England and we go as far west as Indiana and south to the Carolinas. Our Fleet of trucks consists of newer Volvos and Freightliners with an overall average age of less than 3 years!
We operate two Driver Training locations based in the Harrisburg PA and Newburgh NY areas. Eastern selects recent graduates from Tractor Trailer schools in the northeast and continue their education to make them ready to take on the challenges of being a Regional Flatbed Truck Driver. Our six week program has proven to be one of the best in the industry. The trainees receive 3 weeks of intensive classroom training along with practical road training time to fully understand what it takes to operate a tractor trailer. The final 3 weeks is dedicated to being on the road with one of our certified Regional trainers. The trainees are shown the full experience of how to operate a commercial vehicle in the northeast in a safe professional manor.
