Overview of our Management Training Program:


Your training begins by learning the role of front-line operational supervisors. This orientation enables you to observe supervisors during the operational shifts of an ABF Freight Service Center.

Then you will personally supervise operations under the supervisors’ tutelage, gaining new insights into safety, maintenance, and transportation.

Account Management and Administration

You will follow-up your exposure to operations by spending time with ABF Freight account managers. By accompanying account managers on client presentations and entertainment activities, you will learn the dynamics of proactively managing ABF Freight accounts.

Plus, you will master key administrative functions, including cash management, customer service, and payroll.


Upon completion of the program, Management Trainees are placed in one of our more than 240 facilities across the United States, normally into an Operations Supervisor or Account Manager position.

Your path is defined by you–your particular traits, skills and talents. Those in our top management positions all paved their way by developing and strengthening their own abilities throughout their ABF Freight careers.
