1,500 new trucks added to Celadon fleet

Celadon Trucking Services (#39 on Commercial Carrier Journal’s Top 250 list) just purchased 1,500 new tractors for its fleet.  The Indianapolis-based carrier bought:

  • International ProStar tractors for the company’s core driving fleet
  • Kenworth T680 tractors from Paccar for its Expedited team operations;
  • International LoneStar models for the Lease Purchase division.

“One of Celadon’s hallmarks has always been the newness of our company fleet, said Celadon CEO and President Paul Will.  â€śThe key for us with these new ProStar tractors is to help recruit company drivers to our fleet as well as offer a reward to our existing company drivers.”

Danny Williams, vice president of Quality Companies said the acquisition of the new LoneStar trucks provides its lease purchase operators what he called “… a one of a kind experience that cannot be matched anywhere else in the marketplace.”

Celadon Group, Inc. provides long-haul, regional, local, dedicated, intermodal, temperature-protect and expedited freight service across North America.
