    I pull 100% airfrieght ,75% conway drop n hooks. So far this week from Atlanta to Vegas down to Blythe, CA to Charlotte up to Mass down to Connecticut over to Chicago up to minneapolis and now on my way to Sacramento. Just because u might now get miles doesn't mean nobody else does. Also I guess ur right about my typo, the trailer was 102" sorry. The door was still 105" wide. They did something with drywall and the building was made nearly 100 years ago. Trucks weren't as large back then. Why would I come to a forum to lie? I don't lie in person y do it online?

    Just to add some credibility to Squid, I drive for Conway truckload and pull lots of Conway freight loads and I see CRST trucks in their yards all the time. Sometimes more than our own trucks. We may have even bumped into each other out in Blythe or Sacramento before.

    Yea CRST has a fleet of like 100 trucks that specialize in Conway. Inside the company it's referred to as the "elite fleet" by the dispatchers. Your chances of being a regular team and getting Conway are slim. We're all #1 rated teams which I believe is a 61+ mph avg transit time or something. Either way conway has the miles man.

    i have been with them for about 8 months and make 33 cents a mile and am no where near 500 a week average. Maybe 250 300 tops. I have good relations with fm not late and am a tier 3 (the top level according to fm) some of others i talked to average more but just be warned your weekly pay WILL vary alot and you will never get rich doing this. Good Luck all

    Me and my codriver just started our first load was a ups from commerce ca to mechanicsburg pa I believe it was 2400 miles. So far we have a good fm who is very happy with our performance as we don't stop unless we need to. So as long as you drive hard and are not late to appointments things will look up. Going at the rate we are we could be looking at an average of 400 a week and that's just starting. There's my opinion if you don't like it oh well I'm happy with CRST atm.

    I understand that just because I am not getting miles that doesn't mean no one is getting miles the post asked others opinions on the company and I gave MINE which no matter how you sugar coat yours is my experience with company and as far as all these miles everyone is claiming yea you will have a few good weeks but two weeks ago I stop at a TA in denver and counted 17 CRST trucks SITTING in the lot. I am also a top tier team according to my fm but there are very few miles to go around now so if you are lucky enough to be a all conway team then congrats to you but lets be honest to people coming in the chances of you being a conway team is very slim so get used to sitting and good luck

    Yea I do see a lot of teams sit in certain areas but usually when I sit it's due to weekend dispatch but CRST is good to get ur foot in the door the. You can find a better company.

    You can go back to edit the original post and not have to make a new one .
    I wouldn't call you a liar . Just said I had my doubts . I admit the mileage you stated is possible running flat out but as others said it is available to very few .

    I am not a dedicated conway but i do haul a lot of conway and roadrunner. I definitely can't complain about my miles we usually average around 6000 a week or a little better. Usually the ones that are sitting in tthe truck stops are waiting to pick up their loads i guess. Usually if you stay on your dispatchers butt they'll do something. I usually start irratating my dispatcher the day or day before i'm going to deliver. Even on weekends i don't have to much trouble my fm usually makes sure i'm set up. CRST ain't a bad company i've been here over 2 yrs and counting. Wish the pay was a little better but oh well.
