    For years we at Farm2Fleet have been asked to provide full dispatch for some drivers. Because of our model it made it hard for us to do it and do it well. But we saw a huge demand for O/O’s that wanted to just run and not worry about find their next load. But the typical business model that paid drivers in the $1.40 range with fuel was not something we wanted to work with.

    So we worked with a large carrier to be able to provide all the benefits of running for a large carrier but also get a strong percentage pay plan while being managed by one the leading small carriers in the industry.

    80% of line-haul (with fuel a O/O should see over $1.60/mile on 2,700+ miles a week)
    FSC on all miles
    Expedite/Truckload hybrid (better paying freight and not having to sit waiting for that next expedite load)
    Fuel discount - $.25-$.40/gal
    24/7 dispatch
    Free plates

    Email bill@farm2fleet.com for more information.

    What is the issue with Covenant? We have been working with them a while and it is hands down run based on the values of the founder. Now, it is a large company and you have issues like any large company. But that is why I love what we are doing here. I am running this. I have all the resources of a large company but get to run loads based on what I believe should be done. That is why we are paying percentage vs mileage, we have 100% control over dispatch, we make the calls in terms of dispatch, etc.

    A driver in my fleet that just wants to be dispatched and run is going to find it hard to make more money on any of the mileage programs that companies run.

    What "control" does Covenant have over the O/O or would we answer to F2F??

    They are doing all the back office and safety. All drivers will report to my company but you violate a safety policy and that is out of my hands. And actually I will likely be tougher. On some stuff I am a one and done type of guy.

    But we have been running trucks and have only had one contact direct to drivers. And that was a driver shutting down in ATL for no reason (they had hours to drive). Not at a TS but in a bad area.

    Only exception would be when we have drivers on high value loads. Then security is running the show in terms of tracking and communications. Upside, it pays realllllllllly well. But no forced dispatch so if you don't like that then we won't dispatch it.

    Your depiction made me laugh. But you can be assured that I have complete control over the driver managers (where most issues happen with large carriers) and the drivers that we hire (a bad driver and bad driver manager are like the perfect storm).

    As far as EOBRs, it is the future. Fighting it is akin to a monkey….

    BigBadBill, Do you have any help in getting a driver into his own truck? I am looking seriously into getting into my own O/O situation and this sounds perfect for me. I await your response. Thanks.
