About ACT

WE'RE 90 YEARS YOUNG.

Just because we’ve been running the roads since 1926, don’t get the idea that we’re set in our ways. We take pride in being an innovative, forward looking company that’s constantly looking for new ways to make driving safer and more profitable for our drivers.

We started out as a small flatbed trucking company called E.K. Motor Service, operating in Joliet, Illinois. In 1972, Tom B. Kretsinger, Sr. purchased the company and changed our name to American Central Transport, or ACT. By 1994 we converted our operation to 100% dry van truckload service. Today, we’re still a family-run company. Here you’ll enjoy an associate-friendly, business-casual environment where you’ll work alongside the family of our founder.




CLASS A CDL DRIVER FINISHING PROGRAM

With our TRACTION program, we give entry-level truck drivers a way to quickly climb the ladder to higher wages. You'll be paid while you learn the ropes from an experienced trainer. Once you're on the road, we'll support you with 13 weeks of follow up to make your transition to solo driver even more successful.


  • Paid training
  • Pay increase every 90 days for your first year
  • You're eligible for all OTR bonuses
  • Approved Veterans Apprenticeship Program
