Welcome to Our Family

Owner/operators are at the heart of our business and their success leads to our success. That's why we are committed to their economic and personal well being.


“I have been working with Century Express for about 8 years and before I came here it was hard to find consistency with a carrier that would do what was right by the driver.    Century Express maximizes your growth potential.  The staff is courteous and kind and will help you in any way possible to be profitable.  I can truly say that my time here has been nothing short of amazing.”

“I have been working with Century Express for about 9 years.  This is the longest time I have ever been with a trucking company.  That tells you something.  The staff is a pleasure to work with.”

“I am very glad to be leased on to Century Express.  They have a way of making you feel like family.  I have never known them to leave any of the drivers on the side of the road without lending a helping hand.  This is something we drivers really appreciate and admire about this company.”

“I have worked with Century Express for about 4 years now.  The office staff is very professional and courteous.  The driver rates are very competitive, and the work is plentiful.  There are other perks as well that show that the drivers are much appreciated for the services that we provide.  All in all, it is a great place to work.”


Our driver turnover ratio is one of the lowest in the business, so we must be doing something right!
