Driving Jobs and Home Time at CTI

CTI: The Home Time Advantage

For many, a job in trucking means being on the road sometimes for weeks, away from home and away from your family. Industry statistics tell us that the average driver will be on the road for 2-3 weeks at a time, coming home sometimes for only a day- and sometimes less. Central Trucking Inc. is not an average trucking company, and our driving jobs are far from average.

CTI Drivers: Far From Average

Drivers at CTI enjoy far more time at home than the industry average. Regional and relay drivers are home every couple of days. Team can be home every week. We offer  these positions at each of our terminals. And the amazing thing about driving at CTI is that you can get this home time, and still make $55,000 a year as a solo driver, and $110,000 as a team.

At CTI, you can have a driving job AND have home time.

Family Helping Families

CTI is a family owned and operated company. Drivers have families, and with CTI they are able to support their family driving a truck, and still be home to spend time with them. Whether it is time to unwind after being on the road, or being home to see a child or grandchild’s play, home time is essential for drivers. Don’t spend all your time and your family’s time behind the wheel of a trucking company that doesn’t get you home.

Idlefree and CTI: Making the Best Equipment Better

Central Trucking Inc. not only has the best trucks and trailers on the road, but we also offer Idlefree technology in all our trucks. From Idlefree:

For over-the-road drivers, a comfortable bunk, a warm engine, and access to a computer or TV aren’t luxuries; they are necessities that contribute directly to their comfort and safety.

Discretionary truck idling is the common solution for generating the energy required to meet these needs. But the price tag—in terms of higher costs, noise, and engine emissions—is steep, and getting steeper.

The Idle Free electric APU offers a flexible, cost-effective alternative to discretionary idling. It is a system designed to address the practical, on-the-road needs of over-the-road drivers and fleet operators—from keeping bunks livable in any climate to meeting more stringent environmental regulations.

CTI takes pride in its designation as a Smartway Elite status carrier. Idlefree helps make that possible, while still providing comfort and safety for our drivers.

New trucks and Idlefree, another CT advantage.

New Trucks Are Coming To CTI!

Central Trucking Inc. prides its self on the quality of our equipment. Our short trade cycles and in house maintenance ensure that our trucks are safe and dependable. As we start our new trade cycle, we are pleased to announce the arrival of the new 579 Peterbilts to the fleet. Here is a little more information on our new trucks, from Peterbilt:


By designing our new cab around the driver, we’ve created an environment that drivers want to be in. The result is a spacious and ergonomic cab interior designed to put everything in reach and with the driver in mind. A new driver display package features large, easy-to-read, operation-critical gauges. The multi-function steering wheel features convenient access to cruise control and audio controls. Switches are backlit for enhanced nighttime visibility. Peterbilt’s SmartNav system, an integrated telematics and infotainment system, provides real-time truck monitoring, truck-specific navigation, hands-free Bluetooth connectivity and satellite radio.



The Model 579 features a generously sized sleeper that combines comfort with productivity in an ergonomic business area. The bunk holds an 82-inch mattress, the largest in the industry, and provides the amenities of home that Peterbilt is known for. An innovative television mount accommodates flat-screen TVs on a convenient swivel. Abundant overhead storage spaces are thoughtfully designed and contribute to more flexible organization. Strategically placed LED lighting creates a pleasant ambiance for reading and working and saves battery life.



To ensure the headlamps on the 579 were the best and the brightest, our engineers traveled to 10 countries and logged countless hours of research, testing and improving. The results are headlamps and fog lamps that have the best down-road visibility and coverage in the industry.

Designed for a consistent beam distribution and exceptional overall road coverage, our headlamps deliver a homogenous pattern and less eye fatigue. A large, one-piece windshield aids visibility and standard air-disc brakes significantly reduce stopping distances.
