    They are an All Owner Operator company, based out of Chicago,Il. With a terminal in El Paso,TX. They are owned by TSG. Transportation Solutions Group. Pay is 80 percent of load to truck, avg 84 - 108cpm before FSC avg .24cpm. They have 350 plus Sat equiped trailers and about 200 O/O to pull them. I am doing some dealings with them now and will probably sign with them. They seem to be on the up and up, but as with all things. Time will tell. Hope this helped.

    Yea this is the worst company ive worked for all o/ops
    pay .95cents per mile loaded 70 empty and fsc is .07
    the dispachers are 20 yearold kids. most of there drivers are mexican
    YOU SEE WHY THAY DONT PAY!!! after it all said and done if you run 3000 miles you will bring home 800 after deductions. verry unprofesh.
    if your thinking of them dont run away, unless you want to work for crackhead money:biggrin_25513:

    to all owner operators: stay away from this company! they tell you that they have lots of freight, but they dont. the only loads that pay well are their contract based loads out of el paso, tx or chicago, il! to make it worse many of the office staff, including management and safety personnel own their own trucks of fleets of trucks they have leased to fx. these underpaid drivers of these trucks will always get the high paying loads first. out in the system all loads are brokered and you have to deal with the broker. these loads wont pay you enough to cover fuel, and none have a fuel surcharge on them, ever. no matter what fx tells you. they will always be heavy....40-48000lbs. this will eat up your fuel, money and your truck! after working for them for six months i lost $36,000 and after trying to catch back up for the past 10 months i lost my truck. now i have to start all over. avoid this company like its the disease ridden crackhead lot lizard at your local truckstop! you will make more money working for another company for less money! and you can keep your truck, family and pride. :biggrin_25513::biggrin_25513::biggrin_25513::biggrin_25513::biggrin_25513:

    I have been driving for FX for over 6 month now and will have to kindly disagree with bpgincognito. They have been very flexible with me and my hometime requests and I earn about $1500 a week running an average of 2900 miles. Not bad considering I am home almost every week.:biggrin_25514::biggrin_25514:

    Don't do it!!! They claim to have lots of freight, they tell you there is a 2800 mile guarantee. NOT!!!!!! They are flexible and get you to and where you need if requested. The dispatchers try to micro manage you and will leave you sitting if they think you may be out of hours or running too hot. They do not have that much freight as they claim. They take mostly cheap freight from brokers and their fuel surcharge is, hold on to your pants, only .13. And they think they have a great deal! They don't pay tolls, they don't pay scales, they don't pay for nothing. Pay has been on time. but if your looking to go broke, stay away!!!:biggrin_25510:

    Oh, I forgot to mention, they brag of 80% drop and hook! What a lie!!! I am working on 85% plus live load and unload. You keep the same trailer for days, drop and hook is almost nonexistant!!!
