    Panther Expedite

    I've been at Panther for just over a year. In that time I was able to save enough to buy my truck (happened today, had to hide the money somewhere before tax time). If you find the right owner I think just about anyone can find success here. It's an EZ qualify, non forced dispatch company. Just make sure you sharpen up on your negotiating skills. I went from tractor/trailer to straight truck and now can forgo the nightly rodeo at truck stops and am loving my mpg. BTW, new class B students are welcome so experience is not an issue. They do have owners w/ tractors if ya just gotta be in a big truck, and also cargo vans for those w/ no CDL. If your over the BFI's consider Panther! Tell 'em TB sent ya!

    That's good to know. I have a 08 Volvo 780. I'm going to drive it for awhile before I put a driver in it, so I can get to know the company first. How is orientation, I've heard it's like the rest. Boring. Lol

    Actually, I think the majority of complaints come from drivers who contract w/ owners, not against Panther itsself. It doesn't help that Panther is unwilling to intervene when conflict arises between the two. A lot of the complaints are your run of the mill pissin n moanin about trucking in general, but quite frequently are serious like pay issues, harrassment, etc. As a driver, be sure to be diligent in your research of a potential OWNER as well as Panther, up to and including word of mouth. Panther will not give you any feedback on the validity of owners. If you are an O/O, you shouldn't encounter any of the preceeding commentary, and I highly recommend Panther. Good luck to you!

    Btw, orientation IS redundant. Make sure to give your full attention when they discuss the importance of empty moves and other operational strategies. Competition for freight is fierce amongst the top producers in the fleet and you'll need to utilize all tools available. And lastly, be sure to bring your own lunch!!!

    I have spoke to few O/O who with Panther now but they use to lease with Fedex CC or another company,well they all told me Panther bay far is the better company to lease with.I'm not an O/O but I will say there O/O out there who will rip off there drivers and those drivers are the ones who give Panther the bad name.

    Great. Thanks for the info. yea, I talked to a few O/O as well..... i cant seem to find any that are ########..( too much, lol)... I understand Panthers side, that its between the owner of the truck and the driver...

    but im not sure why some many owners are ripping their drivers off.... dont they understand that its THOSE guys/ladies that is making the money for THEM and taking care of THEIR truck??? Im sorry, but even IF i put a driver in my truck at one point, i dont see it called for to rip the driver off. it will come back and bite you in the ###.... its just BAD biz
