Owner/Operators

Switching Has Never Been Easier

Celadon’s $4,500 Transition Pay Makes Shifting Careers a Breeze

Any driver who joins Celadon as a true owner-operator and completes orientation receives $4,500 in their first 85,000 miles to help with the transition into a new career! This is equivalent to $0.05/mile on top of their normal pay rate.

If you’re a solo owner/operator – bring your truck to Celadon and you’ll earn an industry-leading percentage pay package! You get 70% of linehaul revenue and 100% of the fuel surcharge.

Driving team as an owner/operator? You can choose the percentage pay package that suits you best. Your team gets the choice of that same great 70%/100% package OR you can choose to earn 75% of both linehaul and fuel surcharge!

With our dense freight lanes, our dedicated support staff and low turn times, it’s easy to see how we take care of our independent partners on the road.
