Thank You For Your Interest In Rapid Response

Thank you for your interest in Rapid Response.  Please know that the interest is mutual!  We’d love to add you to our team of professional drivers.  We are looking for company drivers and owner-operators.

Family owned and operated, Rapid Response has been in business for over 20 years and is headquartered in Wentzville, Missouri.  We truly care about our employees, drivers, and contractors. Our hard-working team is dedicated to being the BEST transportation provider in the industry by delivering exceptional value to our customers.  We are built on a strong foundation of customer satisfaction, excellent service, personal commitment, and integrity.

We are a dry freight operation with 53’ air ride trailers. We operate new Peterbilts (2014/2015/2016) and newer dry van utility trailers. The majority of our freight is consumer goods products or packaged goods. We haul no HAZMAT. We ship mainly out of the St. Louis area and backhaul our way back. We book loads a week in advance so there are always available loads for you to take. Many times, your backhaul is booked before you even leave with your outbound load!

We pride ourselves on service and on-time delivery for our customers, but we also keep in mind our mission is balancing family life with the ability to meet the customers’ demands. Operations and Dispatch work closely with all drivers with this in mind and work the driver to and through their homes most weekends when needed.  This allows a driver the ability for a good, balanced family life as well.

Our driver retention is one of the highest in the country. At Rapid Response we treat our drivers like family. You are not just a driver – YOU ARE THE BACKBONE of our company and we treat you the way you deserve to be treated!  We urge communication between drivers, dispatch, customers and the shop staff so that everyone is informed of daily activities.

We have great respect for our drivers! If you have what it takes, we look forward to adding you to our talented team.  If you would like to join our family, simply go to or click the “apply here” button above and we will contact you, or call 636-875-5057 and speak to Laura Naunheim, Safety & Compliance Manager.
