Celadon Trucking Services has purchased 1,500 tractors, a mix of Kenworth T680s and LoneStar and ProStars from International.
The ProStars will be used by the Indianapolis-based company’s core driving fleet, the Kenworths by the expedited division and the LoneStars by lease purchasing.
“One of Celadon’s hallmarks has always been the newness of our company fleet,” CEO Paul Will said in a statement.
“The key for us with these new ProStar tractors is to help recruit company drivers to our fleet as well as offer a reward to our existing company drivers,” he added.
The company has been able to add three to four teams each week over the past few months as drivers have graduated from its driver training school.
