    Does anyone know of any OTR companies with a 1200 or so mile+ average length of haul, with a terminal or maintenance facilities/parking/drop yard in the area of my picture below?

    Solo, reefer or van, looking to run the 70 and take a 34, staying out 2/3/4+ weeks depending what I come across..
    I have over 18 months of experience.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Coffey Thanks this.

    You're not going to have any problem finding work in that area with those stipulations. Swift, Knight Schneider, Werner, usxpress etc all those companies are in that area. They will accommodate you. Take your pick you can be choosing. There are many other options in that lane. All the best on your journey
    Coffey Thanks this.

    in the bush somewhere

    They're mostly flatbed though.

    Honey Locust Farm, LLC | Live Haul Trucking | Temperature Controlled Trucks

    Don't know how far they run but mostly reefer work.

    Zimmerman Truck Lines | Quality and Dependability for Over 75 Years!

    I know these guys used to run to the left coast and had a terminal in LA. Not so sure what they have going on these days. But they were a very good company to work for I'm told. Everytime I applied to them I was told I was too young. First they said 21, then I turned 21 and then they said 23, so I waited two years, then was told it's now 25. So I gave up.

    Watsontown Trucking Company | Watsontown Trucking Company

    I know these guys always seem to be hiring, I think they're more regional, but I believe they do run all the lower 48. Supposedly ranked as a top 250 carrier in the country, at least their trailer doors say so. Pretty new equipment as well.


    Reefer and dry van. Don't know a whole lot about them though.

    Sterman Masser Potato Farms - Home

    These guys are pretty local to where I live, they haul potatoes. Nice equipment and I'm told the money is good too. Not sure how far they run. Most of the guys I see are home weekly, some daily.

    Calex Express out of Pittston, PA.

    They have coast to coast solo and team refrigerated freight. Primary lanes for coast drivers are PA to northern or southern California and return.
