    I am an owner operator of a Sprinter van. I used the load boards and found rather quickly that vans don't have the capacity for most of the loads offered. I joined up with an expediting company in LA and they provide a decent amount of work. I would really like to find another such company but I am having difficulty. I am particularly interested in OTR or longer distance runs to Vegas, Arizona, Oregon and other states. The money is a bit better even though the fuel costs are high. Does anyone have any tips, knowledge, or a line into such companies? I've tried Load One, Forward Air, and Landstar. They are not signing on any more Sprinter vans.

    Maybe look for expediting companies in the states you mentioned, Las Vegas, Reno, Portland, Phoenix, etc, and sign on with them also. If a company in say Phoenix needs a package picked up at LAX and delivered to AZ, they don't have to dead head a driver all the way here. Just one thought.
    @Chinatown might have some ideas.....
