Central Transport doesn’t provide detailed pay information on their website, but their job listings do give some insight.

Here are some examples from recent job postings:

  • Local Line Haul Driver in Atlanta, GA: $1,200-$1,600/week

Most job listings have similar weekly pay rates regardless of the position, although most positions we found were for local line haul driver night shifts.

Like with most other driving positions, the pay rate is dependent not only on the position itself but also on the location.

We can also find more salary information on Indeed.com.
