    I am not new to the industry and we have a small fleet around 11 trucks . We had as many as 3 running for them on their Tyson dedicated runs .

    In the beginning they were OK . Over the last few years things have gone downhill. Rules always changed and they micromanage like crazy . Beware if you have a fleet as they tried to poach every driver I n had there multiple times . Even changed their name on a couple days notice and sent new stickers and permits in the most unorganized fashion I've ever seen .

    We pulled our last truck and had one settlement still on our card . The last settlement hid today ....approx 8000 on the card between the two. When I went to pull funds with. Check the card was blocked. We use our own fuel card paid for our own ends and paid for plates that we have returned. Was told are holding our money for an additional 15 days and 45 for the escrow. The later I expected . The first shows what kind of unethical people that run that operation .

    You have been warned

    I agree the name change was very unorganized. When I left mercer they held my money also seems to be what company's do. The escrow I can understand holding until equipment is returned like the camera system and the logging device. But locking the fuel card so you can't transfer the money that I don't understand.

    I will say this and I know it's not CRL fault since these new carriers jumped on the band wagon of doing power only with em the amount of time to get a load has gone up. I've also had a lot more TNU which I don't mind to an extent as it pretty much free money to sit. I've said it once and will say it again though if my dispatch every leaves I'll probably jump ship also he's too good and not a fan when he's not in lol

    During the late 60's, early 70's, many service people headed to Vietnam got shipped out by train, through Clarksville TN. The Monkees are singing about a serviceman heading to Southeast Asia

    They went under the name of KLB then back to CRL. From my understanding it was a liability thing.
