    Which companies use autoshift trucks? Ive heard Averitt gives them to their new drivers and Choctaw (part of PAM) only uses autoshift.

    No, I don't want to hear complaining about not driving a stick

    US Xpress is autoshift - Interstate Dist has autoshift and some manual shift. I think CFI has autoshift also

    at Roehl's orientation, they said they may still have two auto-shifts, and they were on the way out.

    I know you were after who *does* use auto-shifts, but I thought mentioning companies that are actively against them, may help, too.
