Owner Operators

CST Lines Owner-Operators

Dedicated freight lanes available! We work largely with dedicated lanes from WI to CA and back, WI to PA and back and WI to Midwest and back every week. These lanes have proven to provide our drivers an excellent income while still enjoying regular home time.

The main commodities we haul include cheese, frozen fruit/vegetables, fresh mushrooms, meat and dairy, produce, shrubbery, or similar seasonal freight. Consistent, solid year round rates, with a strong customer base have proven successful over the years.
