PAM Blog Article 6


We are saddened to hear about the closing of Central Freight Lines. Trucking is the backbone of America, and we care deeply about all drivers. We are offering a $5,000 sign-on bonus to Central Freight Lines drivers to help transition into a new company to keep them rolling on the job and have money coming into their pockets. Central Freight Lines drivers can learn more by talking to a PAM recruiter at 888-705-2101. 

Our Online Orientation also will help drivers quickly get on the road. The Straight to Seat orientation can be completed remotely or from the comfort of home, at the driver’s convenience.

The $5,000 bonus will be paid in $2,000 for the first dispatch and $1,000 per month for the first 3 months. To be eligible for the bonus, drivers have to prove they worked for Central Freight Lines in the last 30 days.
