    That actually is a no brainer. Gordon is a very good company. I give it a 85 to Knights 68.

    Indian River Transport in Tampa.

    From what I've read on here the past year, I'd pick Knight.
    Then there's:
    Monterey Boats in Williston,FL
    Abilene Motor Express
    McKesson Corp. in Orlando
    Lessors Inc.
     
    Marky84 Thanks this.

    Listen to China. I drive for Heartland (they bought gordon) and they r slowly merging the 2 companies. The company newsletter this past Xmas said it would be a 4 year process and we r in year 2. Soon gordon trailers will be phased out along with the baby blue cascadias. Shoot the gordon terminal in St louis by the j on 270 is now a Heartland terminal. Changed the sign and added an inspection lane. Bottom line u won't work for "gordon" Ull work for Heartland
     
    Marky84 and Chinatown Thank this.

    Between those two I would pick Knight. There is a guy here who said he made $80k running in their reefer division. Heyl also has a terminal by Tampa.

    Real men drive for Gordon because their trucks are blue.

    I can't speak for Gordon but I drove for knight for years and I liked them. if you have a good terminal manager\dispatcher they'll keep your wheels turning
