Founded in 1985 and employing over 4,000 associates worldwide, Celadon Group Inc. (NYSE: CGI) is one of the largest and most progressive transportation and logistics companies in North America.
Celadon maintains one of the youngest fleets in the transportation industry with an average tractor age below 2 years, compared with the industry average of 7 years. Celadon has been recognized with the 1st Place -- National Fleet Safety Award, the industry's most prestigious safety award, three times.
Currently, Celadon operates nearly 5,500 tractors and more than 12,000 trailers throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada.
Additionally, Celadon runs their own company-sponsored training school, the Celadon Driving Academy, with locations in Indiana, Alabama, and Texas. All meals, housing, and transportation costs are covered by Celadon.
Celadon hires throughout the lower 48 states, except Montana, Idaho, North & South Dakota, Maine, and the area of Florida south of Ocala.
Celadon's operation and requirements are typical of the larger trucking companies, with certain areas that they do not hire out of. They also require 10 years to have passed for any felony convictions.

No, you do not need a U.S. Passport. However, you will be required to provide identification at training and a U.S. Passport may be an acceptable form.
No additional endorsements are required.
Again, pretty typical, but it should be noted that Celadon has listed specific items of clothing that they will not allow, for those who like flip-flops and tank-tops.
Regardless of whether or not a company requires them, we always recommend getting a passport as well as all endorsements to make sure that you are prepared for any future opportunities.
