    They usually run "on the system"; this means when you empty out you are subject to runs from their closest terminal. Pretty much like OTR. On Chemicals, after each load you have to route to the nearest tank wash to have your tank, hoses and fittings cleaned. This can take several hours because these have to be spotless. Different chemicals react to each other so you will not be loaded without a "wash out sheet" from the wash place. Amazing how "delicate" some of these chemicals are.

    I believe Schneider runs by the mile but I'm not sure. I do know that I've met very few friendly Schneider drivers anyplace I've loaded/unloaded. Mostly all grouches that think their orange truck means they have priority.
