    If an OO isn't grossing 1k (average) a day than he's a horrible business owner. You're turning this into something it's not. My point is as stated, outside of intermodal the sky is the limit as to what a smart business owner can accomplish.

    I would miss the freedom and choice of being an O/O. I've had good LTL jobs, you really gotta hump day in, day out. Without seniority, it's a crappy job.

    @JimmyWells you're correct, outside of Intermodel, there's more money, but you will also sacrifice being home every night, which is very important to some guys.
     
    slim shady and RERM Thank this.

    Totally agree BUT if one lives in the right area they can only run a 300 mile radius and do much better than getting screwed with intermodal.
     
    RERM Thanks this.

    A little, but not too bad, the Holiday rush got a little crazy about a month ago.....3+ hours at CN, Elwood and Landers became common....
