    Yes, I did some research I couldn’t get any information on year of truck. Amazon only has email address. I know you guys are experts.

    I emailed Amazon the exact question that you are asking. They responded: "We have no age requirements, but breakdowns are counted against your performance scores"
    Just be confident in the truck you choose...
     
    Tug Toy and NewbieTruck Thank this.

    Good luck. Everything I've read indicates the pay is terrible.

    There's a 40+ page here floating around. Imo not worth it. Pretty much the container crowd switched to Amazon. Put amazon up in the search bar

    Go rent a wagon for 350 a month a try out the spot market. Guarantee you won't wanna go back to taking orders having a truck but being treated like a company driver.

    They'll prob say "No forced dispatch" and yea it's true but it doesn't mean you won't receive a time out for not doing it

    So What would you suggest? I am new I want to learn. What should I do as an O/O. Other brokers will not work with me because I am new authority. And I am getting told that private/ individual will not use me because new too. I get only 2 choice Amazon or convoy. Or if you guys have good Company that I can lease my truck and drive for?

    The big 3pl's won't give you work? My first load was TQL. I don't run for them anymore but I made a lot of money running mostly for TQL and CHR the first year I was solo. BNSF treated me decent too.
