I work as a trainee dispatcher at C1 Transportation, and I really enjoy the experience. There is a good opportunity for anyone in the trucking industry to make good profit working with them. They treat me very well and I enjoy it here.

Billy B (Lemao)

After 7.5 years of bouncing around from company to company I thought there was no such thing as a good one. In the last 11 months of rolling here as an owner, I realize there are places that still appreciate and respect us! I pulled flatbed mostly, and have been operating a reefer these last few months. Overall great people to work with
