Company Review

Most of us have all heard of the saying, " if it's sounds to good to be true... then it's most likely not true" or even " all talk and no substance "(and no action)!! Well this trucking company, REAL TRUCKING is an EXCEPTION to this rule! I've been here a little over a month and I would DARE say this is the BEST trucking company to work for coming out of Chicago area ever ... hands down the BEST!

Driver of The Year

We are pleased to announce our first-ever Driver of the Year - Iaroslav! Iaroslav was chosen by his peers for this honor. His excellent communication, collaborative skills, and safe driving habits (no inadequate inspections or logbook violations) were noted. In addition, he takes the initiative to solve any little problem on the road that he can, including fixing trailers or bringing a trailer in need of attention to the yard rather than risk an accident. We express our gratitude to Iaroslav for his excellent work. Congratulations


“My father always tried his best to warn me away from trucking. He worked as a driver his whole life. He did not want that life for me. He encouraged me to study law and become a prosecutor. So, I became a lawyer and worked in governmental service for seven years. But I always wanted to be a driver….” Oleksandr’s story deeply resonates with all who yearn for the freedom of choice. The choices that he made have brought him a measure of freedom and contentment. “Honestly, I feel like my own boss. Yes, I work for Real and it’s their truck, but I don’t feel pressured to do something that I do not like. Here at Real, we have good relations between people. No one trying to humiliate or force you. And I understand what happens if I don’t take a load. If I refuse, both the dispatcher and the company can suffer. We all have a part to play--like one big family. “
