Celadon rolls out new independent contractor program

Says “Rent to Run” provides “all the rewards without the risks” of being an independent contractor.

The new “Rent to Run” program being rolled out by trucking conglomerate Celadon Group is touted as offering truck drivers a way to become independent contractors with “all rewards without the risks.” 

Ashley Hay, Celadon’s VP of driver recruiting, said in a statement that the Rent-to-Run program offers a higher pay package compared to the carrier’s typical lease purchase driver, combined with the support network available to drivers in a company fleet.

Drivers in the program get paid 75% BOL for on time deliveries and receive straightforward settlement statements, while leasing a truck for a low weekly payment that covers the vehicle, insurance and all operating expenses, Hay said.

“This offer provides less hassle and higher take-home pay for most drivers,” Hay noted, with drivers in the program given the option to operate over-the-road or Midwest regional while being promised full-service, no hassle maintenance and a free loaner truck provided within 48 hours when needed.

“Our Rent-to-Run program simplifies managing your own truck,” added Hay.  “Whether you want to test your hand at running your own truck or you’re a seasoned veteran, this full service program takes the risk out for drivers.”
