Celadon was founded in 1985 and has become one of North America’s premier transportation companies.
Founder Stephen Russell had neither employees nor equipment when he started the company, but he did have one major dedicated contract: the transportation of automotive parts to a new Chrysler plant in Mexico.
Russell named the company Celadon after reading about celadon pottery, a green-glazed style of stoneware dating back to the Koryo dynasty in China. He hoped that the company would be as unique and beautiful as the pottery.
Located in Indianapolis, Celadon provides dedicated, expedited, long-haul, regional, local, refrigerated, and intermodal transportation service across the NAFTA region. Celadon Group also operates Celadon Logistics Services, which provides transportation brokerage and management services, as well as supply chain management solutions to include warehousing and distribution.
