    Remember when looking at truck paper. Do it online.
    And set it up so that it will list with the lowest price first.
    They will still have some of the more expensive adds first. Since they paid more, these are the ones in the actual paper.
    But they have hundreds and hundreds that do not make the paper, and that do not pay for the fancy add. This is where you want to look. Many Gem's are hiding there at close to half the price of the ones with the large adds.

    I was going to ask him that same info. And if it had a current dyno.

    It's a common problem for every company. Be flexable a bit with your dates you want to be home. I also recomend that every day let your DM know about your hometime, basically the squeeky wheel gets the grease. So when they send you a load, just write back, "what's next, going to be heading home?"

    Another option is ask if there is a load that goes the right way. Sometimes they will send you the opposite direction. So before accepting it ask if.there is better.

    They maybe also sending you in the opposite direction to benefit you. Sometimes they will try to find the best way financially to get you by the house. If you don't have any appointments at home if they are running you then run! Go home when it slows up. I know it sucks though when you are out for a long period of time and you just want a break. It can be very stressful. Sometimes it seems like when you are burned out you are BURNED OUT! Be very careful driving during these times, this is when you will make the most mistakes! Try to relax and just realize you will get there eventually.

    With Central you have to be 48 states, no driver related cargo claims, and no service fails for 6 months before you can get on dedicated.

    Also you will get messages over the qualcomm when dedicated accounts are reqreuiting
