    Has anyone ever heard of this company or have any experience with them ? They appear to be a small O/O flatbed outfit. They have a location here in Albuquerque, NM and in Midlothian, Texas. Was considering leasing on with them but sure would like to find someone that has had some experience with them or knows something about them first hand. Their website is http://www.fifthwheeltransportation.com/ . Any input would be helpful.

    I've pulled a few of their brokered loads in the upper Midwest. They keep track of their paperwork, and aren't shy about keeping on top of it. Above average rates, but fairly low volume.

    Are you getting good rates? Has the volume picked up?

    I don't pull loads with bad rates. I've been seeing them post more partials lately. Lots of no-tarp loads and shorties.
     
    Traveling Jones Thanks this.
