@fredh Have you thought about Walmart? I ran into a driver who came over to Estes from there, says he made $124k his last year. Of course, you can do the same at nearly any LTL Carrier as a road driver.
Either way, Estes is home for me! Love this place, but I always recommend Walmart to drivers who have been Truckload Drivers most of their careers. Thinking it may be an easier transition for them, but I’d rather stay LTL
Longest hau I ever did was about 740 miles. The extra pay are for things like getting loaded on a weekend $150, having to spend a 34-hour reset on the road two hundred dollars, loading and unloading, repairs, and others.
