    Hi, I'm new here. I have 2.5-ish ears OTR experience. I applied for a position at Custom Commodities. I haven't heard of them, but they have a dedicated route going through my area. It is a dry bulk account. It seems pretty attractive to me. Very predictable route. Anyone familiar with this company? I think they are based in TX. That's all I know. The people I've talked to seem pretty cool. What are they like to work for?

    Thanks.

    Based in Gilmer Tx. NE of Tyler. Nice equipment. Other than that I don’t know much about them. I’ve talked to a few of their hands on the road but never about pay, etc. Call them and see what they have to offer. I do know a lot of their delivery is done in the middle of the night when plants are shut down.

    They are the parent company or sister company of Elliot Truck Lines. Perhaps @Cobrawastaken can give you some insight. He has a thread on Elliot in our Tanker section.

    Go for it, driver. Good folks at Gilmer yard. Owners in the office every day. I have had only great experiences as an Elliott driver. Am taking a sabbatical due to personal issues but they assured me the door is always open for a comeback. Small company atmosphere, but good equipment and good runs too.
