    Hello, Is there anyone who can tell me the best LTL company in Missouri? I don’t have any experience, I will most likely have to go through a dock to driver program first. I just want to know which company is considered the best before I make my decision

    Old Dominion Freight Line. Or look into being a feeder driver for UPS if you have a hub near you.

    That's the type of question that will yield to subjective answers. I guess it depends on who you ask. A lot of Old Dominion fans on here, I've seen some who suggest Yellow. Where do you live in MO

    I live in downtown saint Louis so I’m kinda close to most terminals most terminals are no more than a 30 minute drive. The closest to me is probably old dominion

    It used to be that every LTL in St. Louis had a location on Hall St, but some of them have started moving outside the city. It looks like OD still has a location there, which would make it my top choice in your situation. ABF, T-Force, and XPO also have Hall St locations. R+L Carriers has a really nice facility in East St. Louis, which would also be pretty close. YRC/Yellow is over by the brewery, but that should be your last resort due to their low pay and shaky financial future.

    It looks like Dayton is probably too far out, around 35 minutes west of downtown. Then again, there are several drivers at my terminal who have hour-long commutes. I don't know how they do it.

    I moved up to Hannibal, anything up this way worth looking into?
