    So I had a question I got my 1st load and now it's been 2 days since I finished my 1st load, I still have not gotten a second load and was wondering how long it usually takes to get another load with these guys, To actually make it out here and pay my bills at home I'm gonna need at least 3 loads a week, So how many loads should I be averaging a week? And why the h*** haven't I Received another load?

    Join the club this is my second day waiting for a load also... I n ow in my company’s case is they refuse to run cheap freight and I don’t blame them . So until they let the economy move again I’ll be lucky to make 50-60% of my normal earnings. I figure that’s better than no earnings . It’ll get better

    Wow I would think DG and DT would have you drivers busy ! Especially with folks buying from stores that save you a little more $ then Walmart / Target/ Food Lion etc. I assume you work for a mega company ? When I was at Schneider those guys that worked out of the South Boston, VA DG-DC were kept busy.
     
    Nsuaqcat Thanks this.

    In my state there are several DG's and FD etc. SOme are closed. Consumed by each other. Including a Freds chain that tried to eat USA drug or CVS only to watch big fish walgreens buy it all. (Pharmacy sales...) And poor freds is closed too.

    The dollars here only get one truck a week. Thats it. MAYBE one truck goes to two of them. They are not that big.

    Everyone don't care about the stuff in the store except one thing.

    Toilet paper. You can probably deliver a load of that every day.

    I've got an acquaintance who is a Werner/Dollar General driver. He started as a new driver and has been at it for about a year. He said he is getting his normal 3 loads a week.

    Truckers across the whole spectrum are going to be slow for awhile untill after the country opens up for business again.
