    How much are you guys working the docks and losing or unloading your own trailers, versus how much are you driving/dropping/hooking ext?

    In another thread someone recommended Estes they seem like a real good company but I forgot to ask that question. Are there any terminals where it's just driving/dropping/hooking?

    How often do you guys go to NYC, or does that depend on the terminal? I'm in Charlotte NC so if I stayed in Charlotte, would it be likely i'de have to go to NYC? Maybe if I moved out to the Midwest that would lessen my chances of having to do NYC?

    EDIT - Jtarren06 you were the one who answered my questions in the other thread I see you post in this thread too.

    Linehaul extraboard is 0 dock work. 500-660 miles a night and 100% drop hook.

    NYC you won't go. But you can goto Jersey city. Brooklyn. Boston etc. Good thing is it's a estes terminal. No trying find customers. I have never been to Brooklyn and been here 1.5 years.

    Charlotte you stand good chance seeing a lot of Florida. Mid west your still gonna go east sometimes.
