    Hi Drivers,
    Anyone tell me how the Celadon OTR company trucks are equipped? Do they use Ezpass or PrePass, I'm sure they use Qualcomm Appreciate the input

    No EzPass, but they do have PrePass. Yes, definitely qualcomm.

    Just heard from a bud of ours that still drives for them that they now have a hiring freeze in place. Also, a lot of drivers quitting.

    We just got that info from our bud earlier today too. I had the feeling it was coming though. My hubby left their employ just before Christmas due to serious lack of miles.

    Honestly, I'd think about looking elsewhere if you have some other options. There are some things I've read in the last month or so that make me think things are not very well with that company.

    Celadon had an ad in our newspaper here in Wilmington, NC just a few days ago.

    I work for Celadon and there trucks are equiped with prepass but no ezpass. Ezpass is only givin to the team drivers. There new trucks have a engine shut down after 4 minutes when the temp out side is between the degrees of 30 and 70. They do have the new qualcomm system that talks to you when you get a message. The trucks only run 65 mph unless you are a team. Team drivers ge volvo and solo get pro stars.

    Like I said I liked working for the company and my dm, but I'd do 1000 mile trip and sit for a day and a half after that. I actually like going into Canada and down to Laredo, Tx too. However like your husband I had to say good by as well.

    Funy thing is that been though they have gps in their trucks and they knew where I live and had my home address and . When it came time for them to send a recovery driver for my vehicle. They sent him to the wrong state with the same name of my locality.

    The dm for recovery drivers kept askin gme you live here and I said no I live there. They sent the recovery driver to here instead of there.
