We know this industry, we know owner-operators, and we know our customers will always have the freight to keep you moving. You’ll never feel like a number at ContainerPort Group.

Opportunities to Drive
Our local, regional and over-the-road (OTR) options give you the flexibility to haul when you want, where you want.
Local Intermodal Drayage
Be home every night with local routes around ports and rail ramps near you. Containers are taken straight off rails or ships for truck transport over distances within 100 miles. You can also choose dedicated route options, making your days on the road an easy routine.
Regional Intermodal Drayage
Regional routes expand your reach and eliminate some of the more difficult driving on tight local routes. Intermodal hubs take freight straight off rails or ships and place it on your truck for transport within 1,000 miles —all while keeping you home on the weekends.
Over the Road Drayage (OTR)
If you’re in for the long haul, we have OTR freight ready and raring to go. These drives run 500+ miles and reduce pick up and drop off time, leaving you with long stretches of open road driving. Drive comfortably with optional benefits that cover you from highway to home.
Bulk Liquid Drayage
Whether you have your hazmat certification or you’re looking to expand your services, we ship all sorts of ISO tank freight. Find loads in bulk liquid shipping with us.
Local Dry Van Truckload
For those who’d rather stick close to home, driving local keeps you within 50 miles so you can spend more time home. Deliver freight on routes to nearby terminals located throughout the Midwest, Atlantic and Southeast.
Dedicated Dry Van Truckload
Rather run the same routes? Dedicated dry van opportunities could be your best fit. Service terminals in your area and drive the same scheduled routes. You can expect a steady schedule with consistent time at home.
ContainerPort Group runs its own truck brokerage through our Logistics Solutions, and we are always looking to expand our fleet of carriers. We pay quickly and on time, and our customers always have freight to ship so your truck doesn’t have to sit still.
Driver Experience Team
Our Driver Experience (DX) Team is your source of driver support and an advocate for any questions or ideas you have about CPG®. Your voice is the most important one out there on the road, and we’re committed to making your driving experience the best it can be.
Safety First, Second and Third
