    I worked for Central Carriers LTD in Edmonton as my first job doing LTL and I was doing $150,000 per year. 100% commission job and I was the absolute best at my job.

    LTL is one of the last good paying gigs if you can find a good company to work for and if you can deal with going to people’s homes,small businesses,dealing with tight docks or working the docks at some companies,having to do a million stops and or pick ups and actually having to unload the freight you can make a lot of $$. lots of drivers in the states make over $100k but unfortunately not alot of those good paying ltl companies north of the boarder only decent companies i know of are xpo,yellow and tst but that also depends on your home terminal for each of those companies it seems
