WACO, Texas — Texas-based Central Freight Lines has announced its newest division for owner-operator teams called the Expedited Elite Fleet.

To fill the team spots in this new division, Central Freight Lines is contracting team drivers in Fontana, California; Houston; Atlanta and Orlando, Florida.

“Central Freight Lines is excited to expand our fleet to add this new division for owner operator teams,” said Betsy Waldrop, recruiting director for Central Freight Lines. “We’re pairing a pay increase and excellent miles with solid freight lanes drivers can rely on.”

The different runs include Houston to Orlando, Orlando to Houston; Houston to Charlotte, North Carolina, and coast-to-cost runs from Fontana to Atlanta and Atlanta to Fontana.

Teams in the new division will earn $1.15 per mile base pay plus a fuel surcharge.

They can also expect dedicated lanes, terminal-to-terminal runs, two coast-to-coast options, and 5,000 miles or more per week, Waldrop said.

The Houston to Orlando and Houston to Charlotte runs have weekend home time and the southern runs have convenient routes along Interstate 10 and I-20.

Interested owner-operators must be at least 23 years old, have a minimum of one year over-the-road tractor-trailer driving experience and have a valid Class A CDL with hazmat, doubles/triples and tanker endorsements.
