    Have you checked out their web site? .22 cents to begin with isn't very money. Do a search for Baldwin Distribution at Google and you will find their company information, from pay to benefits. I, myself don't know anything about the company except what they have listed on their web site. Hope this helps!!

    My current girlfriend drove for them up until a year ago. Family owned. She says she wished she'd stayed but got burnt out on running CA and back. Got plenty of miles.

    I wouldnt go to Baldwin. I was with them and they really push the HOS. Im and o/o and even with me it was forced dispatch. I found out also that i have cancer and when i called to tell them that i couldnt drive till this was taken care of the first thing they asked me was if i could take a load to New York. They are the most inconsiderate bunch i have ever seen. I would do my research before going there.. i wish i had

    I got the ok to go to work for Baldwin Distribution and I'd like to hear the inside scoop from any current drivers at Baldwin. If you could let me know any of the good, the bad, the whatever, I'd appreciate it. Most importantly, I'd like to know what you're averaging on miles per week right now during this screwed up economy.:biggrin_2551:

    Baldwin Dist out of Amarillo, right? Use to run a lot of Macks/Volvos, not sure if they're governed or what. Reefer operation, meat loads to Ca galore plus east coast, I think. Power units are solid red. Owner is a chick. :biggrin_1square7:
     
    Bucktrucker Thanks this.
