Get Hired! a Little about Lake Trucking Company!


It is always a good idea to know a little about the company you are thinking about working with. Since many of our drivers have been with us 5, 10, 15 or more years we think of our employees as part of the family. 

Here is a little family history for you...

Lake Trucking Company is one of the nation’s leading transportation companies specializing in highly perishable, refrigerated products and time-sensitive shipments.  Lake Trucking Company is a licensed Motor Carrier.  Established in 1961, we are located in Leesburg, FL, 40 miles north of Orlando, FL. We operate from our state-of-the-art 20,000 square foot frozen and refrigerated distribution center.  Our facility is designed to cross-dock and store large amounts of product.  

Our approach to servicing our customers is to listen to them to find out what their needs are, and to do everything in our power to fulfill their service requirements.  For over fifty years we have specialized in the transportation of highly perishable products, such as fresh seafood, fresh meat, produce and flowers.  Our facility 20,000 square foot frozen and refrigerated facility, is Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)  compliant and meets and exceeds all Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.

A large portion of our business is transporting fresh seafood for our sister company, Stokes Fish Company, as well as for many other wholesale seafood distributors in the United States.  This seafood is imported from South America, Mexico, Norway and Scotland, as well as from the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to the fresh seafood, we transport fresh meat from the Midwest and Rockies back to Florida.  At our facility we are able to break down full truck loads of meat and distribute them to multiple locations for our customers.

We lease our tractors and trailers from a national full service lessor (Ryder).  This twenty year relationship provides us with late model, well-maintained, and reliable equipment. Through this relationship, we are able to operate our fleet to its fullest capability.  

We are proud of the fact that we have very few delays due to breakdowns on the road.

We operate with all “team drivers” so we can meet and exceed our customer's delivery expectations.  We transport highly perishable products that have to be to market in a very short period of time.  Our team drivers enable us to drive legally non-stop, thereby providing our customers with an advantage over their competitors.

At Lake Trucking Company our people are our greatest asset. Our reputation for providing excellent service is what drives us every day, and a lot of our growth comes from word of mouth.
