Celadon | Truck Driving Jobs

Company Overview:

Now introducing our WageLock program

WageLock ensures our good drivers who are doing their job get paid – even during periods of lower available miles. All U.S. company drivers may be eligible to lock in their wages, including students and refresher drivers. Apply to drive Celadon today and know what your weekly settlement will be week-in and week-out.

For over 30 years Celadon has strived to offer safe and efficient truckload transportation services across North America, 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 state-of-the-art facilities and equipment 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.
