For the month of August, Jiggy Jobs is highlighting Celadon Trucking as our carrier of the month. Founded in 1985, Celadon Trucking has grown to become one of the country’s largest transportation companies. Celadon’s team, made up of nearly 4,000 seated trucks, has a reputation for being one of the youngest on the road. That reputation is paired with the great resources and consistent freight that comes with Celadon’s extensive customer base.
Celadon has a history of giving drivers what they need to succeed, and those efforts have never been more apparent than with the additions of the carrier’s multiple fleet and pay options. Drivers now have the option to drive in more specialized fleets such as flatbed and temperature controlled; and now owner operators and lease purchase drivers may choose Celadon’s new percentage pay option.
Here’s our list of why driving for Celadon may be right for you:
- Pay Options – Owner operators and lease purchase drivers can now choose between three pay packages, including the new percentage pay option. Dry-van and temperature controlled drivers opting for Celadon’s percentage pay option will receive 70% of the bill of lading with each on-time delivery.
- Lease Purchase Choices – Lease purchase drivers and owner operators interested in more miles and higher pay can choose to drive with Celadon’s temperature controlled fleet paired with the new percentage pay.
“Lease purchase drivers and owner operators can now make more money with our new temperature controlled percentage pay,” Ashely Hay, vice president of recruiting, said. “The revenue and length of haul on these loads are both typically higher than dry van, so we’ve had nothing but great feedback from our drivers on this new option.”
- Ease of Lease Purchase – Drivers can lease purchase a late-model tractor for $0 down and no credit check. If you want to run your own business with minimal starting cost, look to Celadon’s zero down plan. Any driver that is qualified to drive for Celadon is qualified for their lease purchase program.
- Celadon has options – Celadon has experienced successful company growth in the past few years. Now its drivers carry more than just dry-van freight. Dry-van, flatbed, temperature controlled and specialized freight make up its service lines. With lease purchase, company driving and even free CDL training and refresher courses, we see Celadon as your one-stop-shop for driving career options.
