    Thinking of doing the power only thing with jb hunt. Is there anybody doing it? Would love some feed back before I reinstate my authority.

    J.B. hunt is going more and more intermodal . You don't get many miles and you do a lot of driving in traffic that really lowers your mpg

    How long ago was that? Don't have to worry about a trl. The mileage plan is better than % for now.

    Lots of complaints - and sitting for days like the lease ops.

    Don't think it's anything like the Schneider's choice program.

    Their focus is dedicated accounts and IM, as far as sales.

    Your talking about doing this under your own authority...right? Get hooked up with schneider, landstar, and anyone else you can think of also.

    I don't remember which company it is, but if you haul their load and they don't have anything for you, you can load their trailer up with your own load and they don't charge you for it.

    Thanks for info It's jb only use trailer if they can't find you anything in 24 hrs. I'm sick of leasing on with carriers. I really like who i'm with now, but .85 per mile plus fsc
