Our professional carriers provide safe, reliable transportation every time.






Time Sensitive

When your shipment needed to be delivered yesterday, be assured that our time sensitive services will get the job done. 

We understand that time is money and every minute matters, but on some loads, it matters more.

When your freight is on an especially tight timeline, look to Cornelius Leasing Systems to get your freight delivered both quickly and safely. 











Dry Van shipping is the most common type of freight transportation in the US. Handling dry freight full-truck loads is our specialty.

Cornelius Leasing Systems can handle your dry freight shipments either on a Full Truckload (FTL) or Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) basis.








Transporting temperature sensitive truckloads with specific requirements is a challenging task.

You can rely on Cornelius Leasing Systems to execute these requirements with ease. 

Our highly insulated trailers come equipped with a sophisticated refrigeration system to regulate temperature and keep your goods within a desired temperature range.

Our specialized equipment can handle frozen,  deep frozen,  fresh produce or meat and more.

Whatever your refrigerated shipping needs are, you can rely on Cornelius Leasing Systems to be your refrigerated shipping experts.





 Our transloading specialists can create and customize a solution specifically designed to suite your transloading needs. We can handle dry or refrigerated goods, pallets or loose freight.

Our proven system of accountability will ensure no material is left behind. We provide expert service to load your product from one mode of transportation to another, or into storage.

Our transload services are aimed at making sure the hand-offs between systems are seamless.








Current Drivers

Cornelius Leasing Systems only hires experienced, dependable drivers with impeccable safety records. We’re proud to say we have one of the lowest turnover rates. 

At Cornelius Leasing Systems we understand that our drivers are our most valued assets and the reason for our growth and success. We have one of the most skilled and dedicated team of professional drivers on the road.  

We continually provide our drivers with the best equipment, pay/benefits, and ensure efficient operations and load planning that allow them to maximize their home life without sacrificing safety or income.

One of the best things about working for a company our size is that we are big enough to keep you loaded consistently, but still small enough to know your name. We understand that each driver has different goals,

and whether you are an owner/operator or part of our Cornelius Leasing Systems team, we provide the job that best fits our driver’s lifestyles and needs.
