    I used to run strictly expedite, in a van. Always loved when my dispatcher would send extra info about a pick or drop, such as who to see, what entrance to go to, what EXACTLY i'm taking (didn't always get a skid,) He'd also say to avoid certain routes, which I really liked as it saved time and $$. Not sure if truckload dispatchers can get this much info for a driver, but I definitely appreciated the effort put forth.

    So, what does crst do differently and what role do their fleet managers play?

    I'm not really familiar with CRST's operations . I do know they run truckload and their drivers are employees where none of the expedite carriers like Panther or FedEx Custom Critical own trucks . Most of the loads they run are LTL in straight trucks or cargo vans .
