    I know us chemical haulers here in the northwest are stupid busy. 12 loads in 5.5 days last week, burned up my 70, and hauled 732,000 pounds of NaOH to just 3 customers and I wasn’t the only one hauling that to those customers ether.

    I don't blame you. That's not enough hours, or enough money.

    Our terminal is turning business away because we don't have capacity to meet the need at present.
    We're hiring fast as possible, getting as many drivers in seats to meet that need.
    Pay has increased 40% in the past 4 months to help with that.
    New drivers start weekly it seems.
    And yeah many stations we serve are nearly dry when we deliver.
    Demand keeps us hopping, allocation issues crop up here and there.

    65 to 70 every week. Overtime in day 6. Grossing around 2000 a week. We don’t have enough equipment so can’t even hire new drivers right now.

    65 hr average. Home every night/day.
    2,400 to 2,500 per week.
    Can't hire smart experienced drivers.
    Our problem is it's a 24/7 operation and new guys don't want to start at the bottom..
    Well you know which way sewage flows.
    10 yrs before a decent start time and weekends off.
     
    91B20H8, bzinger, Dave_in_AZ and 2 others Thank this.
