American Central Transport | Truck Driving Jobs

Trucking Company Overview:

Just because we’ve been running the roads since 1926, don’t get the idea that we’re set in our ways. We take pride in being an innovative, forward looking company that’s constantly looking for new ways to make driving safer and more profitable for our drivers.

We started out as a small flatbed trucking company called E.K. Motor Service, operating in Joliet, Illinois. In 1972, Tom B. Kretsinger, Sr. purchased the company and changed our name to American Central Transport, or ACT. By 1994 we converted our operation to 100% dry van truckload service. Today, we’re still a family-run company. Here you’ll enjoy an associate-friendly, business-casual environment where you’ll work alongside the family of our founder.


At ACT, our standards are high and so is our pay. We strive to fill every company truck driver job with a seasoned professional who is looking to build a long-term, profitable career with us. We offer a great freight base, year-round productivity and the opportunity to provide the kind of income and benefits your family deserves. 


Imagine working with a company who cares about your bottom line as much as its own. Well, that’s just how we do business at ACT. Our Owner Operators get the freight and the miles they need to stay profitable and reach their business goals. We work hard to make sure that every Independent Contractor gets the advantages of all of our resources and the backing of our great people. Because we’re successful when you’re successful.


ACT is the perfect place to make your transition from driver to business owner. We partner with our sister company, Excel Leasing, to give you the opportunity to take the next step in your career.
