    Hello, please forgive me if this is not allowed this seems like a good forum for information about the logistics industry. I found this forum trying to research a Chicago 1099 company offering OTR box truck leasing. My names chuck I DO NOT have a CDL and can't easily get one at the moment. I do have about three years of 1099/w2 box truck experience that was all local. Right now I'm in a really bad situation at home and am trying to take off for a while and make good money. I'm barely able to support myself at the moment.


    My car blew up around January and I lost my job because of it. Where I live it's almost impossible to get a job without a car the bus doesn't really go to where the jobs are and they are all out of walking distance. I took off shortly after my car blew up with a freind who was doing OTR box trucks, we went from WV to Florida to Texas to Colorado in about 10 days (got overnight hotels every few days wasnt that bad imo) then it became clear that company was never going to pay us so I got on a plane and came home. Haven't been able to find a worthwhile job since.


    I've got a really good freind I watched out for before that has about 10 years experience in class A OTR and has been home with his kids for a few years, he knows my situation and is willing to do box trucks OTR in teams with me until I can get on my feet enough to go and get a class A CDL. We applied for "MML alliance", got approved by their safety etc, found some bad reviews and posts about Serbian 1099 leasing companies on here before leaving and called it off.

    With all that said are there any good OTR box truck companies worth working for? If so could you guys recommend some? I understand I may get roasted for asking this and that's fine honestly things are so bad for me at the moment that it wouldn't bother me much.

    You should have, at least, given "MML alliance" a chance.

    Put your information on this thread. Don't go into much details.
    Just say you're an experienced non-cdl box truck driver looking for an OTR job and willing to run solo or teams. Say that you already have a friend to run teams with.

    Bolt Express leases box trucks and sprinter vans. They were good to drive 18 wheeler for. I don't know how well the other trucks do, but they are nicely appointed.
    FYI Bolt has terminals in Toledo, Muncy and Laredo.
     
    Numb and Sirscrapntruckalot Thank this.
