    I ran 964 miles on a FAF load and took home $1775. I run under my own authority though.

    That's a good rate,my concern with any CO out there is they don't have consistent freight so if u make a good run to keep moving u take another at less and it ends up the good run payed the difference for the bad run so now your down around 1.25 and if they don't have the freight eventually your screwed

    Its been pretty consistent. I run Northeast, so I stay around a certain average. I understand what you're saying though. I just try to stay where the money is, and I do pretty good. I hadn't been driving for years, only to come back and see that nothing has changed for the better. I just understood where I have to run to make good money. Forward air rates are really good, and they send me emails daily.

    Their webpage makes it sound like a good place to sign on too. That they will try to find freight to match where someone wants to run.

    I wouldn't totally agree with what they pay their OO... maybe it works out for some... The guy I spoke to said they did get paid for all miles, idk
