    It's pronounced Cook
    They pull Polaris atv's fron the Shakopee,Mn distribution center. At least that's the one I called on.
    Double decked w 5 to 7 dealer stops.
    Mileage pay, stop pay and a one time per trip unloading rate..forgot how much but wasn't major. You drive em off the trailer and it's a done deal.
    Home every 5 to 7 days running upper midwest to rocky mountains mt,wy,co.
    Average $1400 to 1600 per wk if I recall depending if you hustled.
    Lots of dealers not open on sun or mon.
    Had a problem w running 64 mph out west where productivity equals pay.

    They asked me if I wanted to be a dispatcher. I don't work there to begin with. And I declined.

    Back in the early 90s we used to run best buy truck/ trailers that were leased from koch on our days off to their new stores all over the country when they were growing and then fly home while we all worked teamster jobs in mpls.
    Later I did pt work running rail trailers to the Chicago rail yards, back before hos was a thing.

    Averaged 1600 miles per week. I ran out of Huntsville Alabama, Shakopee, MN and St. Louis DCs. They are all about the same. Pay depends on if you are company driver or owner operator

    1600 mile per week? Who makes a living off that? Not the driver.

    Well if you had read the entire post, you would've seen that i explained, that particular fleet is performance based, not mileage. Yes, you make money per mile, but you make the bulk of your money with performance $75 per drop n hook (2-3 per week) and $50 per stop. In my experience the average run was 300 miles or so, but it varies greatly by what area your stops are in. My smallest settlement was around $900, and my biggest was $2800. But i averaged $1400-$1600 each week
