    Hi list:

    Thinking of moving to Denver for a girl:rolleyes:. How are the intermodal lanes there? I noticed a few members on here. I work as a company driver in Chicago and have experience with domestic and ocean containers(of the overweight variety). Any local or regional dryvan work?
    Thanks

    Denver is called Menver for good reason. Far more men than women. I have noticed that the women here date way above their normal range and get far more attention than they might in another city.
    I would make sure your relationship was just about bulletproof before putting it to such a test.

    How do you become a millionaire bachelor in Denver?
    Move here with 2 million dollars and a beautiful wife.

    That said, Navajo might have some local work for you and they have a gig that is almost part time where you are out for two overnights a week and you get wednesdays and weekends off

    There are 4 main dray companies in the Denver market, then another half dozen fly by nights, all are always hiring for company drivers and lease operators, a few hire O/O's. Most all will require 3 yrs OTR exp., some want at least a little local exp., Denver isn't overly spread out, but it is growing in leaps and bounds. We have two intermodal ramps, 3 CY depots and the usual junk chassis.

    All of the LTL's in this area are hiring, Fed-ex as well, also tanker companies, quite a few large trucking companies have terminals here, but most of the local work for them is exp. drivers that are doing fill-in work or switched over from long haul. Lots of construction in this area as well, mixers and dumps.

    We have a lot of food service companies in the area too, but they are all laying off drivers at the moment, which will carry over to the other companies hiring. Most of the food service guys are union.

    All that said, 90% of trucking companies hiring for local/regional drivers require some type of mountain/winter/chaining exp., get a bad enough storm and you'll be chaining to run local, those storms happen maybe once every 4 or 5 yrs (we're about 2 yrs past due).

    The energy companies are slowly moving company drivers out or laying them off, much of the O&G trucking is hauling sand and water, mostly L/O's.
