    Their pay doesn't seem much different than a lot of outfits that do L/O type plans. .90-1.00 per mile plus fsc. When I run numbers on what it would cost to run a truck I always come to about 1.10 mile with about a 600 a week truck payment so I don't know how people make any money doing it. Maybe the company covers some of the expenses.

    FedEx and ups might jeep you busy for now. What about after the 1st of the year. Why would you sign a 5 yr contract with no way out. You weren't ready then and your not ready now. Times are tougher now. Plenty of cheap freight.be a company driver for a while
