    You can run any power only or loadout load so long as the trailer has a BOL and the combined value of the trailer and freight is under $250k. One driver that went to orientation with me did exclusively PO after his trailer was severely damaged, and I've mixed in PO/LDOT loads here and there to keep rates up when flatbed is slow.

    As of Friday we have come out of our financial issues. We cleared all pay that was owed as of Wednesday and will be back on a weekly direct deposit schedule. This has been the toughest 9-months of my life. It feels great to not only get all this behind us but to come out of it with a partner that gives us the ability to grow, has dedicated freight, back office support and loves our business model.

    For having such a rough start to 2016 it is going to be the best year on many levels in the history of Farm2Fleet.

    We have R/T flower loads out of different states. These are seasonal. But we are about to start offering year round P/O. I'll get more details on that this coming week as it is currently managed by our 3PL.

    3rd Party Logistic Provider. A lot of pure brokers call themselves this. But the industry (outside brokers) looks at 3PL's as people that come in and provide additional services like warehousing, managing bid processes, rating lanes.

    Thanks, it has been a tough year for us but extremely excited about what the prospects are for us going forward. With the stroke of a pen we went from a small carrier that was struggling to being partnered with companies that have the freight and resources to take us to the next level.
