Welcome to Celadon’s first installment of its newest blog series, “The Mile Marker.” We’ll be sitting down with Celadon employees from various departments to weigh in on a variety of company news, industry topics, and more! Celadon’s Senior Vice President of Operations, Chad Hoffman, kicks our newest series off.
Let us start this message with a “thank you” to you, our partners on the road. Without you turning your wheels out on the road delivering loads, the holiday season would be a lot less enjoyable for millions of families across North America. For that, we extend a sincere “thank you” from all of us here at Celadon.
Over the last couple of years, we have taken many steps to improve our retention numbers and have cut our turnover percentage in half. One of the many initiatives revolves around creating a career path for our partners on the road.
It is our goal to provide our fleet with as many driving options as possible aside from OTR positions. Local, dedicated, regional, and loop fleets are all examples of those career opportunities we are constantly focusing on to provide you more reliable home time, route consistency and paycheck stability.
When Celadon secures new local, dedicated, or regional opportunities, we look to our current partners on the road first before hiring from outside.
We feel this provides you the career path you deserve for being loyal to Celadon. This also allows us to utilize your driving experience and Celadon expertise to put the best talent on our demanding dedicated customer routes.
If you are a current driver interested in a local, dedicated or regional position, please communicate that with your fleet manager so that we are aware of where you want to take your career.
If you’re looking to make a career change to Celadon, you’re eligible for these routes, too!
These kinds of opportunities are always changing and can fill up quickly. So once you’ve made that decision to join the Celadon family, give us a call so we can discuss what’s open in your area.
The Celadon leadership, sales and pricing teams are all working hard on winning new dedicated fleet contracts for our driving partners. We want you to feel comfortable calling Celadon your home until you retire. Thank you again for all that you do! Happy holidays.
