Owner Operators

CST Lines Owner-Operators

We work largely with dedicated lanes. These lanes have proven to provide our people 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.
