Industry steps up for former Central Freight Lines employees

Dec 14, 2021

Industry steps up for former Central Freight Lines employees 6 minutes read Welcome to the WHAT THE TRUCK?!? newsletter presented by Parade . In this issue, jobs for former CFL employees and what’s ahead on WTT. CFL shuts down and an industry steps up Jim Allen / FreightWaves Shut down — December weekend trucking bankruptcies are the worst. On Saturday morning my texts and DMs started to blow up with rumors that Central Freight Lines was just about to close shop. I was hit by an unmistakable feeling of deja vu back to when Celadon shut down , which we’d learned about late on a Friday night in December ’19. Like with Celadon, bankruptcies that happen over the weekend are particularly challenging for drivers, who are often under a load and with limited information coming in from their dispatch. With Christmas looming, that meant roughly 2,100 CFL drivers and operations people were now unemployed. Onward — When Celadon happened, many of their drivers had first heard about it during our FreightWaves Radio broadcast on SiriusXM that Saturday. Two years later and here we are with another major trucking company shutdown that many of the employees first heard about on social media, via an article or from a show host. Fortunately, reports of mass strandings have not been the case here. Like with the Falcon and Celadon bankruptcies, I decided to ask you, the freight community, to post your jobs for displaced CFL workers (and others in need of a job). I’m listing most of those below. Please feel free to share with anyone who has been impacted. Note that each name links back to the point of contact with the job offer so you may have your best luck going straight to them if you’re interested in any of these. “I was a connection during the Falcon shutdown and it helped put me on the path to BCB Transport LLC. I am so glad you can do that again for these folks at Central!” — Sheli Brown, director of HR, BCB Transport LLC. FreightCareers — FreightCareers is FreightWaves’ industry job board that was created in response to the Celadon shutdown. Since then it has grown into a forum that includes positions across the spectrum, from roles as a driver to dispatch, operations, FreightTech, sales, marketing and even media. Check it out .
