OUR COMPANY

Welcome to a company in high gear. Buchanan is one of the largest trucking companies in northeast Indiana, in one of the most dynamic industries in the country—nearly everything that you eat, wear, and use comes on a truck. This is a place of opportunity and growth, and we want you to be a part of it.

We have ambitious goals in seeking new employees, new drivers, and new revenue. We’re buying new trucks and opening new operations and logistics offices. There’s a sense of optimism here—backed by solid business practices since Geary Buchanan founded the company in 1996.

Our different departments hold promise for different types of individuals. Our team leaders in logistics are competitive and quick, brokering loads and earning incentives. Our drivers can choose routes that allow them to be home most nights or take them to Canada and Mexico. Our corporate offices keep the operations humming along and carefully manage safety, which is one of our top priorities.

Uniting our company is a family atmosphere led by Geary Buchanan, a former truck driver who knows every inch of the business and his wife, Becky who is also essential to the success of the company. They maintain an open-door policy and are completely involved in day-to-day operations. This is their passion, and they care deeply about their drivers and employees.

We invite you to explore the different facets of Buchanan on the following pages, and we hope that you see yourself in one of the roles described here. Buchanan is poised for growth on the road ahead, and we have much to offer those who can share that vision!

OUR CULTURE

Buchanan began as a family business, and it has remained a family business even as it’s grown.

There are still company cookouts on Friday afternoons in the summer.  There’s not a lot of red tape: If you’ve done a good job, Geary Buchanan or one of the managers might stop by your desk with a surprise gift card or take you out to lunch

In fact, Geary and Becky Buchanan are still very much the heart of this company. They’re readily available to any of their team, whether it be logistics, drivers, dispatch, safety … anyone.

They truly care about their employees. “I’ve always said Geary would give you the shirt off his back, even if he didn’t have one,” says Kimberly Brown, Office Manager, who was the second person to work at Buchanan after Geary. “I honestly couldn’t imagine working for anybody else.”

The diverse nature of the transportation industry is part of the appeal at Buchanan as well. “This industry really kind of gets in your blood,” Kimberly says. “You do the same thing all day every day, but it’s never the same thing twice. In this industry you’re learning something new every day. You just thrive on it. There’s always some wrinkle somewhere that makes each thing different.”

Thanks to the hard work of Geary and his team as well as tremendous growth in the industry, Buchanan is growing rapidly. This creates many opportunities for employees to find their niche here—to move around, and to move up.

“We’re very open to new ways of doing things,” says Phil Gray, Vice President of IT. “You can make whatever career you want at Buchanan if you work and listen and learn.”
