    Midwest regional?

    Anybody currently on this with Gordon? How are miles what do you end up running most of the time? Is there any deticated accounts? Any other info would be helpful. Thanks

    I'm due to start in the next couple of weeks with them. Talking with my recruiter, it didn't seem like they had a lot of MidWest dedicated, but they have just bought a company out of St.louis. http://blog.gordontrucking.com/bid/8...es-Buske-Lines

    They are trying to hire like crazy in the Midwest with an $600 hiring bonus.

    The recruiter I am dealing with is Jim Hamby JHamby@gordontrucking.com Send him an e-mail, maybe he can answer your questions.

    I talk to alot of drivers -- including Gordon drivers ....decent miles depending on how hard you want to run. The drivers that are willing to run sound like they are doing well- when you talk to them listen to what they say-- the ones who are complaining about miles normally are the ones who also say they want to be home alot. Like armored mentioned with Gordon taking on Buske ...more freight is a given.

    Gordon/buske has a dedicated coca cola account in grand rapids, mi which would be why you are seeing a lot of them in your area.

    Go Blue487 Since I do not have seven posts yet I can not PM you. I saw that your from Grand Rapids and was wanted to know your opinion of Gordon Trucking thus far. I am also from GR and have been looking at joining Gordon. They have offered me both midwest regional and a Dedicated route with Coca-Cola.
    Thanks

    Yes you will run from the westcoast to no further east than PA...they have a hershey load they pick up at alot. The avg length of haul on their TC side is uber long compared to the dry van side of things.

    I'm on TC... my shortest run was 1300 miles (except relays). Last week I had 3500 miles in 8 days. Pacific wa-Kenniwick, wa- LA, ca- BFE, MO.. you get the drift.
