    Swift has 3 different accounts to choose from. All reefer, no touch.
    Walmart .53cpm with 2,500-3,000 miles.
    Kraft Western Regional (7 states) .62cpm 2,200-2,500 miles. 70% drop and hook.
    Hershey .62cpm ave 2,300 miles. (5 states)
    Anyone run these? I'm only familiar with Walmart DC's as OTR. I'm trying to pick a new company and Swift has more options as far as taking a reset home.

    They also have Target dedicated. Not reefer though. At least out of the Phoenix DC (very near the terminal). Run to NV (Vegas area), Utah (SLC), NM, West TX (El Paso), and AZ of course. I've been averaging 2700 to as high as 3200 miles a week. Cpm isn't the greatest I think, (.41 to .55) but I'm only started my 3rd month driving. I take my reset at home every week. But I live in Phoenix so that helps too

    Recruiter didn't mention that one, but I'm in SW Utah. Only dry van they had was a Family Dollar.

    When they say "no touch," ask them if you can wait in your truck when it is being unloaded.

    If you have to stand by the dock door while the trailer is being off loaded, it's just as bad as having to unload it yourself.IMO

    I have stayed away from dedicated anything.
    Too many gotcha's.

    Straight OTR or regional is the ticket.
    OTR has more miles, while regional has a few less miles but pays better per mile.
    But you don't often get stuck running the same roads over and over again, and running those insane hours.
     
    Rattlayitdown Thanks this.

    Thanks, I've only been OTR so I wasn't sure what dedicated was like. The Dollar stores look like drivers get raped on pay.

    Spoke with a lady at the Petro in Sparks a couple of weeks ago. She had been on the Kraft account for several years and was pretty happy with it. She was a lease op and had paid off her truck.
