    Looking to drive for a OTR Company.. has anyone heard about this Company? I have seen them around before (their company trucks i assume) all over the midwest.. they are located in IL. They have a advertisement up for Regional Reefer work.. 5 days out, two days back to take off (or request to be on the road more often until you want to come back).

    Please advise.

    they are mainly o/o. they have company too though. they mainly work the rails. containers,rail etc. but they have a small reefer division. the trucks are like older. like 2003 or so. they run paper logs. nothing electronic. its owned by three guys brothers and 1 cousin. they are middle eastern dudes. the rail drivers can be home every day. i dont know what state your from but if its IL i think they run the midwest for reefer. but im sure very sure you can go OTR easily with them. they have a place in south holland,IL on taft street. its a nice yard.

    . overall they seemed nice. but its more of a family owned business. like rather than being a dispatcher, safety, maintenance, load planners, etc. there isnt any of that. its just like 1 or 2 guys doing everything. i mean you can probably get a hold of them easily. they just arent professional as other companies you know. they pay % of the load too by the way. so you look for....less miles more $$$. and hometime is good if you wanna be home weekends. hell maybe even everyday if you do the container work. but their trucks arent in good shape. like jake brake broken. cruise control. etc. but not all their trucks.
