    Also interested in this answer? I find convoy loads on the cheap side and my buds never get accepted.

    What places do you pick up from using convoy?

    We usually run our loads with convoy out of edwardsville, IL or Jackson, MO. A lot of times our bids get rejected too but we usually notice the load going back on board so we resend our bid and a lot of times they take our bid second time around. As far as net gross our goal is to make 10,000 a week. Sometimes we stay out long enough to make more than 10,000. We’ve actually had a 13,000 week. It just depends on how we feeling that week. In that total we have to take out fuel which I think one week it was close to 2,000 but most of time just under 1500.

    We’ve only ran power only for about 5 weeks totally on our own and last week paid 16,000 for flatbed trailer and still have 15,000 in our bank. So power only and convoy has been good to us.
