    No, their yards are around Midland-Odessa area, Texas. They run mostly crude oil, but have an special nitrogen division. I start my orientation with them by next Wednesday 17th. I'll keep posting about it.

    Those rates looks good. It's just matter of how many miles you can run a week.

    Sorry if I get a little bit late. Well overall Coastal Plains is a decent company to start up in cryogenic field. Training it's pay by hours aprox. 10h/day, $24/h.
    If you work 6 days a week, really working, you can take home about $1500 as average.
    Management is good overall. Upper management disengages sometimes a little. But the regional Managers are always there for you.
    Resuming, Coastal Plains Trucking is mainly a crude oil hauling company which has a cryogenic division. I'm on cryogenic side. So, is really hard for 'em to compete against companies like Genox or LGT. And I don't wanna speak about privates carriers like Airgas, Linde, Air Products.
    So, for me Coastal Plains is a good company to gain some experience in cryogenic en move on.
    I hope that I have answered your questions. If u have something else on mind, shoot it. I'll glad to answer it. Be safe out there.
     
    Nightridr Thanks this.
