    Every terminal is like working for a different company. If you really wanna know how it'll be you need to talk with Carlisle drivers. The terminal is on the side of the trucks. I worked out of Lakeland when I was with Knight. My suggestion would be find out which companies pay extra per mile for the miles run in the Northeast since being up that way naturally you'll get alot of miles in that region. When I was with Con-way Truckload, it was a nickel a mile more for Virginia and north and Pennsylvania and east.

    The Refrigerated Division Doesn't Really Get That Much From What I've Heard Lately.. I Asked Before & The Guys In Carlisle Said "You're Better Off Doing Dry Van.." They Got Some Real Nice Equipment But The Miles Aren't There..
