Truck ownership can be rewarding, but it takes a serious commitment and a plan that aligns with your goals. Maybe you’re ready to make the leap, but where do you start? And with so many choices, how do you decide which is right for you?

Trusted industry leaders Expediter Services (ES) and Panther Premium Logistics, a service of ArcBest,  have developed an exclusive, non-traditional lease purchase program that simplifies the path to truck ownership. Learn how you can leverage the expertise of ES and Panther to get into a new truck and on the road to a satisfying and profitable career.


You deserve to be earning and growing instead of wishing and hoping. That’s why we provide the best offer in the industry. Get flexible finance options through your lease with ES, along with access to new or late model tractors, no money down, no minimum credit requirements, and no balloon payment. As you drive for Panther, payments are deducted from your weekly settlements until you reach the end of the term. Then, the truck is 100% yours, and you can keep even more of what you make.


Lease purchasing with ES is much more than getting into late-model equipment with favorable terms and manageable payments. And driving for Panther isn’t just about racking up miles. Those in the program can also expect:

  • Full truck note visibility and transparency
  • Weekly settlements
  • Access to premium freight
  • Industry-leading insurance rates
  • Aggressive fuel discounts
  • Tire and maintenance programs
  • No trailer fees
  • 24/7 driver support


Whether you’re looking to start your own business or grow your fleet, ES and Panther are uniquely positioned to help you get the most out of your investment.

ES has been a leader in generating small-business opportunities and providing various support services within the trucking industry for nearly two decades. Panther is made up of a nationwide network of independent owner-operators who provide expedite ground shipping services for a wide range of valued customers, including those with high-value, mission-critical shipments.  

Together, ES and Panther streamline the lease-purchase process for aspiring truck owners and help set them up for success.
