    Good place to work and paid well as long as you don't mind having a in cab camera .I worked there back in the 70's -80's and the most of the guys I worked with then are still with them or retired at Erb.

    I heard the same. Good outfit but they've implemented driver facing cameras. Created their own shortage with that move.

    They'd be one of your best bets out of Winnipeg if you could get drivers that'll accept a camera on them all day.

    2000mi/week, driver facing camera's, long waits, $600/mo mandatory personal insurance and benefits (single O/O), lots of promises, doesn't seem like the same outfit it was 2 years ago.

    The miles sound ugly. Bison , TransX , day and Ross. Can do 3000 each week for my units The only company that doesn’t give good miles for my units. Are Canada Cartage and Arnold brothers. The fact that your telling me 2000 miles a week. Scares me !

    Its just the reality of reefer only companies these days, Loblaws and the Meat plants are squeezing the life out of every last one of them, People Express filed for bankruptcy, most of the other ones are near bankruptcy, many others are heading to that same end FAST. If you're gonna do OTR General Freight, you need to work for a diversified company, So if you're having success at Bison/TransX and Day and Ross, pull all your other trucks and spread them out over those three.

    Again, I contracted to them all, drove company for Bison and was leased onto a Mullen company, over specialized = failure. If I would have continued to do ABL for Bison, SLH and Mullen, I would have been ok, but I threw my chips in with IHaul and lost.

    Now this is news to me ! People xpress filed bankruptcy ? When was this ? I thought that company was doing good I was thinking they had some good produce contracts.

    People Express Goes Into Receivership | TruckersReport.com Trucking Forum | #1 CDL Truck Driver Message Board (thetruckersreport.com)

    Krown Produce and Loblaws aren't GOOD produce contracts, they're steady, but I wouldn't call them good.

    Its like I said above, all the shipper's/receivers are squeezing the ####ing life out of reefer companies, and they will soon be in for a shock, when the #### is left rotting on the dock.

    Seems like you've worked with a lot of companies. How many decades you been driving now?

    Old trainer works there. OTR LTL USA/CAN, many miles and takes home 2500/net bi weekly. Doesn't sound too bad but i wouldn't want to do OTR. I would work local for ERB instead...
