Any dedicated runs along the border with Danny Herman or any other company?

    Basically, just looking for runs between Calexico, Nogales, El Paso to Laredo, Mc Allen, or Brownsville. I know Danny Herman has terminals in some of those cities, but are there any other companies? The area of the country I want to run in has shrunk considerably over the last month, but the border I don't have a problem with. Looking for a company that has dedicated runs in those areas.

    Check with Flat Creek Transportation. A few of their drivers say they keep I-10 hot and the trucks run 78 or 80, something like that. Maybe that's accurate, don't know for sure.

    I drive for Danny Herman. Yes we run lots of border freight, but not from one border crossing to another. Mostly run it into the south or Midwest.

    Yeah, I wouldn't think so. I was thinking more relaying loads up to El Paso and back.

    I know they have some local Drivers in El Paso and elsewhere. A phone call certainly wouldn't hurt. I've only been with them for a little over 3 months. Every person I have come into contact with couldn't be any nicer. So far, very happy with my decision to work here.

    Contact Leila, she is a recruiter out of El Paso. She was my first contact with DHT last year. Was very upfront with her answers to my questions. Super nice Lady. I'm sure she could answer any of your questions

    I think their newer red Volvos only run 75-80 mph but their blue Freightliner Coronados used to fly by me on I-10 while I was going 80mph .

    I believe they're a team driving outfit as well

    Go look at their google reviews; lots of people complaining about how fast their trucks are

    At those speeds, there will surely be a disaster at some point. The Lawyers will zoom in. Then they will be Flat Broke Transportation, and out of business!

    Along some sections of I-10 and I-20, the posted speed limit is 80 mph.
