BTI Special Commodities, Inc., a flatbed trucking company based in Des Moines, Iowa, was founded in 1988. We established a motto early which was "BTI strives to provide high quality equipment, to haul high quality freight, for high quality customers, and to provide high quality wages to high quality drivers".

BTI has been fortunate to hire some of the most dedicated drivers/independent contractors in the business. We pride ourselves in saying that 21 of our drivers and Independent Contractors have attained "Million Mile Driver" status at BTI as well as 9 at the Two Million Mile level and 1 at 3 Million Miles. These recognitions are accomplished by reaching each milestone accident free during their tenure with BTI, an accomplishment that is unusual in our industry. Customers can be assured that their freight is being delivered by experienced and extremely professional drivers.

Professionalism exudes safety. BTI Special Commodities, Inc. was recognized with the Iowa Motor Truck Association’s overall Iowa Grand Champion "Fleet Safety Award" in 1997 and 2007.

BTI also deals with customized shipping. To learn more about the logistics division of our company, visit the BTI Logistics page.
