Who We Are

 

As a family business, for nearly 90 years Central Transport has been helping to build and shape the American way of life. Though our beginning years were modest, hard work and continued reinvestment enabled us to grow and support the changing needs of America’s businesses and communities.

Today, our presence is nationwide with more than 200 facilities committed to providing safe and efficient LTL transportation for our customers–both in the small business sector and the country’s largest manufacturers and retailers. We understand that our customers’ needs vary and change, and it is the adaptability of our network, technology, and unwavering dedication of our team members that enable us to maintain strong and consistent service levels throughout our network offering Next Day, Regional, and Long Haul services.

We prioritize reinvestment in equipment, infrastructure, training and technology in order to exceed our customers’ expectations while navigating the ever changing landscape of the nation’s supply chain. This strong yet flexible model has allowed us to consistently rank as one of the Top 15 LTL carriers in the nation, and is the foundation for our continued evolution so that we may continue to provide top-tier transportation solutions to the communities, businesses and corporations that have grown along with us.

Community

 

As a family business, we believe in giving back to the communities that we live in, work in, and raise our families in. Throughout the year, Central Transport happily contributes to a variety of philanthropic causes –including Veterans services, Health causes, gifts and assistance for sick children and children in need, the homeless, victims of trafficking, and more. It is important to us to support our local communities and enable our team members to participate in charitable giving.

We are also proud to support the largest community we all share – the environment. As a company, we work hard to reduce our carbon footprint each opportunity we get.

We consistently look for ways to continue to offset our foot print and have implemented the following:

  • Entire fleet under three years old
  • Side skirts on trailers
  • Streamlined network planning for fuel use minimization
  • Local on-site recycling initiatives
  • Energy efficient lighting and timers in facilities
  • Electric energy efficient forklifts
  • Paperless delivery receipts
  • SMARTWAY Partner
  • Tire recycling
