    Oh yea absolutely. You’ll ride with someone for about a week so they can show you how to do their paperwork, their ELD, and how to hook and split sets.

    You do have Haz Mat and doubles/triples endorsements correct? Some require tanker too as large totes that ship LTL can trip the requirement for tanker as well

    You will need doubles/triples, haz mat and possibly tanker endorsements. Not much training to it for wiggle wagons or haz mat. Studying and getting haz mat endorsement is about it. Companies will have periodic training for haz mat but it’s mostly just watching a video and answering some questions.

    If you’ve done 4 years flatbed, I guarantee you’ll pick up doubles easy. Need your endorsements.

    ODFL would be my pick - just don’t be back here complaining that you’re bored and making more money than your previous job :)

    I did that myself, for about $4 more an hour right off the bat.

    Freight lines everywhere are hiring. I see no reason why you couldn’t do it either.
