    I have worked with Trailiner for over 3 years now under a small fleet owner. Part of that was under Trailiner directly as he didn't have his authority yet, the rest has been under their dispatch. I have absolutely no complaints. Trailiner company drivers have to deal with a log dpartment that is VERY strict about accuracy and honesty. As a Solo, that means you actually get an excuse to have your full 10 hour break by sat tracking logs. It's rather nice for a change. If anyone sees that as a downside, thats the only one. I sit on the West Cost for a load for hours at most, most of the year (winter is slow for everyone). East cost is hours year around. Pay may not be the most generous in the industry (my fleet owner matches their scale) but when a solo averages 3500-4200 a week, the end of week paycheck sure beats the .40 cent drivers doing 2500 miles. Every company has downsides and Trailiner is no different..but after 14 years of driving and companies, I have found my home.

    Trail liner of Springfield MO is great!!! they start you out at a whopping .28 cents per mile and will run your cheap tail off, then they will most likely through you under the truck when you are all used up. That it keep on trucking!!!!

    Well I gave them a call and you have to live close to Springfield, nothing on west coast. Oh well. I wish everyone luck.

    :biggrin_25513:No longer w/them! Been treated very awful by the office ever since I left, making things hard on me, to say the least!! Other people may have better things to say about them, but I'm just relaying what happened to me. Won't go into details-Hope it works out for other drivers.
