    Hey y'all, its been a minute. So I have a kind of specific question.

    Last February I started lease operating with a carrier. My wife and did incredibly well, and expanded our operation to 5 trucks. 1 team, 3 solos and us as a team.

    We have talked about getting our own authority for some time now. One of the options we were looking at is Amazon dedicated freight. From what I have gathered it is different from the Relay load board because you get your whole route planned by Amazon....I think...it is #### near impossible to find any information without our own SCAC code and DOT/MC#

    Is there anyone who hauls for amazon dedicated that I could talk to about their program? Thanks

    I have heard that Amazon pays it's contractors as little as possible and expect a lot. But.....I have no first hand experience. I see some pretty beat up trucks hauling those Blue "Prime" Boxes though. I would think if the contracts were profitable, the big Megas would be snapping them up. Their business model allows them to run on a pretty slim profit margin. Good luck!
