New Line Transport offers its owner operators the following benefits/advantages:
Work aggregates division, some pros are home daily cons long hour’s dispatch is not accordingly given lot of empty miles no fuel surcharge yea they give you fuel 2 bucks a gallon but they run you empty so your actual fuel cost is 3 bucks a gallon, constantly going for truck inspections, every 3 months they tell if you don’t like it hit the door.
Where do i begin i worked for newline for a little over a year and i must say it was ok till i started learning the ropes and seeing all the sheenanigans down in Bartow/Metromont they have the WORST Dispatcher Charles/Charlie the guy is obviously getting paid off and management don't do anything about it because he has a big shot backing him (Joel) the terminal manager Thad is a nice guy and tries to help but i feel like his hands are tied they are loosing Good drivers thanks to CHARLES but no-one cares at the end of the day they get paid every week the driver is the 1 that suffers i know drivers that were going home owing money to the company at the end of the weak
The way in which the company (especially the lady in charge of dispatching -Yadira-) is working right now is unethical and unfair with all the employees. It does not make sense that just a very small and recurrent group of employees have the benefit of working the better trips and routes. Even though I can understand seniority could be playing a role in these decisions, it is unjust for the rest of the staff. The job was given to them, and they count on it. I hope this critic will be taken seriously, this is a prestige company, I'm very proud to be part of it, and I am sure that if you take a moment and ask randomly to the employees, you will received a similar feedback of the majority of them. Please, I hope you will take action in this situation. Do not risk a strong action with the majority of your employees for ignoring or pretending nothing is happening because the preferences of this employee (Yadira) and that small group of drivers I told you before.
The company is not the worst the dispatchers are specially CHARLIE over in Bartow/Metromont he has his little crew that he feeds all the good loads to and if he asked you for a favor and u decline to the bottom of barrel you go is sad that everyone knows he's getting paid off and none of the management does anything about it

They have a yard in Palatka, [ go by there several times a week ] never see trucks sitting there very long, seem to stay busy.Plenty of trailers,I notice many different O/O trucks, do not seem to stay very long. Just what I have noticed.
I was leased to them out of Mt Holly NC Hauled sheetrock from national gypsum, I left couldnt do it take a load out and they expected you to deadhead back to get another sheetrock load, Didnt matter how far out you were they were just concerned with that customer not their O/O
I've been with them for about a year now, I don't have any real issues. Home every weekend. I could stay out if I choose too. I'm leasing a truck from them. Not exactly the greatest but it gets the job done. I run for the palatka terminal. They r good folks. They will help you with whatever you need. The freight is easy. Never any issues. It's all flatbed so you know. They do have a tanker decision and a sister company which hauls sand. Hope this lil overview helps.
I worked for Newline for 8 years, on and off. I worked myself to death and couldn't pay my bills. Deadhead milage was incredible, more empty miles than loaded an very little was paid for loads. A 36% broker fee was taken before fuel or other expenses leaving me with about 42 cents per mile, most of the time. I was lucky to get out while I still had a house to live in.
