    Job Overview

    Atlas is signing on CDL-A Owner Operator solos and teams for the Commercial Truckload Division, an owner operator fleet that runs all 48 (coast to coast and regional options) transporting truckload dry-van shipments.

The freight is no-touch, which means you deliver the trailer and others do the work to load and unload.
