    I delivered to the terminal a few times, usually a stop on a multi stop run going to the midwest, usually ending up in SLC....the one time I unloaded the whole trailer in Vegas, I got a paper load back to Cali....it was a sweet load. Filled to the gate, and only 11k...paper towels and TP, LOL. If you get a load there, you will probably get one to Cali, then once here it's easy to get loads working your way back east.

    edit: I just noticed I didn't read the original post correctly. the OP wanted to know if there is a load going TO Vegas from the east coast...sorry I can't help with that as I was based out of SFS

    Volvo and Freightliner tractors. As for trailers, all kinds. Utility, Great Dane, Wabash and a few others I can't remember at the moment. Someone that still drives for WS will be along to assist...

    I would call Chad in Conover and, I can't remember her name, in Myrtle...They would know about regular runs out there and you may be able to coordinate something once you know what terminal can help you...Or just call dispatch and request it...When I was there I did that more than once and they found a brokered load going right where I wanted to go...Making the request is one thing, making it happen will take a lil work on your part to make sure they do their part but it can happen...

    This is also a perfect example of why it's important to build rapport OVER THE PHONE with your dispatchers...QCing is nice, but make it personal and you'll find things seem to work out more often...
