CHARLOTTE, NC… If you like to run and be paid well for your efforts, Kole Trucking is the place for you. The company hauls valuable aircraft engines and aircraft parts.  Remanufactured engines are delivered to airports for installation and the engine that is being replaced is hauled back to the manufacturer to be rebuilt. 

Kole Trucking drivers are out for 6-8 weeks at a time, hauling the high-paying aeronautic freight.  You will run all 48 states on irregular routes.  It is all open deck work using Conestoga Stepdecks, Stepdecks, RGNs, and Double Drops.

Kole does 100% aviation freight, serving all the major aircraft manufacturers and airports.  Company drivers and owner-operators can be located anywhere in the USA.  Both teams and solos are welcome.  With 15 contractors and 4 company trucks, you are definitely not a truck number at Kole. 

Contractors are paid 80% of the gross, 100% of the fuel surcharge, and are compensated for layovers and waiting time.  Kole Trucking offers contractors 401K planning, a health insurance and retirement plan, as well as national tire accounts and nationwide fuel discount.  Teams are averaging 400K-500K annually and solos 280K-350K.

Company drivers operate late model W900 Kenworths and solos earn 60¢ per mile, teams earn 76¢ per mile with a full benefit package.  Solos average 100K per year and teams around 150K.

Kole Trucking was founded in 2010 by CEO and Owner James Kole, who was an owner-operator for 30 years.  This is why James is completely honest with his drivers and feels that hiring drivers is a personal and intimate process to find the highly skilled, reliable, and experienced Professional Truck Drivers and Driver Teams needed to haul aviation freight.  Aviation or oversized experience are a plus, but not required.

Kole Trucking has earned one of the nation’s best safety and on-time records.  If you are up to the challenge of aviation freight, the financial rewards are great, and CEO James Kole would like to talk with you.  Give him a call at 844-320-5897.  Kole Trucking is a place where you will know the boss personally.
