Celadon | Truck Driving Jobs

Company Overview:

 

DRIVE CELADON. NO COMPROMISES.

For 30 years Celadon has been paving the road in safe and efficient transportation. As one of the largest and most progressive transportation and logistics companies in North America, Celadon employs more than 5,000 associates worldwide. With Celadon’s large customer base, drivers will receive consistent freight that is mostly no-touch or drop-and-hook. Celadon’s trucks are dependable and reliable because they’re mostly 2015/2016 tractors. As a Celadon driver, you’ll be seated in one of our newer model tractors.

Celadon offers a range of truckload transportation services within the United States, including long-haul, regional, local and dedicated. Dry Van is our specialty; however, we have growing fleets in our Flat Bed, Temp Controlled, and Intermodal divisions too! Our facilities allow us to provide a total transportation solution. If being a company driver isn’t what you want, try our lease purchase program. If you’re approved to drive Celadon, you’ll be approved for a new International LoneStar or ProStar at $0 down.
