    Until the crane operator decides to eat a sandwich or drink some water....for an hour....or maybe till the crane brakes....while still hooked up to the container ON your truck.....good luck finding an empty too....

    Sorry, I'm a little crabby lately....

    No, not for O/O.
    I'm a company driver, I know nothing about rates.
    For a co. Driver, Heniff iso guys do very well.

    I tried to tell them, but no one wanted to listen.
    Only ISO companies around are Boasso, first choice, CBSL, Heniff or Dana.
    I made good money at CBSL, but I also bought all the equipment and that helped.


    At least with a tanker company, that 3.5 hours at the rail would of paid you 2.5 in detention.
     
    4noReason and RERM Thank this.

    I work Saturdays when I need the money, or when I can get a sweet run....the good thing about working weekends is low traffic at both the rails and on the road. However, I have a wife and child, they need me on weekends, so.....
