    That's exactly the bs I envisioned putting up with and having to be held responsible for some f'd up reason. So glad I'm not doing intermodal!

    intermodal is a hustle game if you not getting paid hourly and if you don't own a truck other than that u better off working at McD's real #### 60x10 with 20 ot or .45 *1500? And you not at home or in your own bed everynight

    Here is real time imagary of ship traffic.

    you will need to take time to evaluate this traffic and understand how much ships are coming and going with freight and who are anchored and waiting.

    I picked Miami as a point to example. Baltimore, Long Beach, NY etc are much hotter ports.

    last week n this week.. work on FIRE.

    also did my first Schneider last week....... ####in impressed with the pay... drop/hook in cedar rapid ia general mills.. paid $850... WTF!!!!!!!!! called accounting and said... hey, is this overpaid? I just dont want any suprises.... they said nope. IM like OK. LOL

    Loaded box from CSX 71... drop/hook in Cedar Rapid, IA ...empty back to Co. yard in South Holland, IL. Easyy

    our co. grabbed Schneider so all we see is csx, schiender, jb hunt in our yard and on the other side 20/40s... figured i was itching to try a schneider move.... not bad actually. not sure if the co. pays special rates for owner ops or this si how actually schenider pays (PRETTY ####ING GOOD)... ill take it ............. any time !!!!!!!

    needless to say ... i was really against haulin 53's but i did it 5 days last week... i made $2,875.39 ..........with no lift on/off ########... told mike/jr ... keep me on 53s LOL.

    We're sputtering, it looked like it was picking up, then this week it's tapered a little. Talked to all our bean customers, sellers are waiting for harvest to see what will be available. Everyone says the same, '12/'13 and '13/'14 won't be happening again any time soon.

    Whoaaa! Keep your 20/40 to yourself buddy lol. I did a 40 this week. Man idk how you guys do local then con global then chassis here then go here and all over again. Id prefer 53. Only good thing is the short trl driving in chicago. Glad to hear 53s pay o/o well. I think jb hunts pay low the rest are ok. Not so sure though.
