Central Trucking opened in 1974. It is a coast-to-coast carrier with a fleet of about 225 trucks as of 2015. The company is a refrigerated carrier; however, it also transports dry commodities.
Central Trucking's main areas of transportation involve moving dry goods from east to west and taking produce from Arizona, California and Nevada back east, notes Eaton.com. The company's headquarters is in Columbus, Indiana; its other three locations are satellite terminals. Aside from coast-to-coast services, Central Trucking also offers regional, shuttle and team services.
Central Trucking's entire fleet is refrigerated, which makes it unusual in the transportation industry. It is the coast-to-coast premier refrigerated carrier, states CTItruck.com.
Central Trucking Incorporated emphasizes retaining drivers and maintaining a low driver turnover rate. Hiring and training drivers is a large expense, and driver retention offsets the costs. Because the company services business needs across the entire country, fuel economy is also vital to its profits. To offset service-area costs and maximize profit, the company retires manual trucks in favor of models with automatic transmissions as new trucks are needed.Learn more about Corporations
