    Carriers and shippers have to agree on what rate tariff they are going to use when they put together contracts. If they are going to us say PC Miler version 23 practical miles then that is what is put into the contracts. When a carrier decides to try to change to actual miles for driver pay, they first have to review all of their contracts and then try to get their shippers to agree to a new tariff. That is why many carriers don't even try. If you have contracts with 300 shippers it takes a long time to get them to agree or wait until their current contracts expire. That is how it works.

    I used to work for Greatwide - wouldn't now. I work for Titus Transportation, happy with them, none of this bad stuff and always lets you know in advance what you'll be running and works with you - Titus hauls dedicated warehouse to store in DFW for Aldi - Aldi and Titus are growing - check it out at www.bestdrivers.US (not dot com, dot US) Titus is the dedicated grocery part of a company called NEAT Enterprises.

    GreatWide sucks..... you lost Tyson contract because the idiot were hiding trailers/tearing them up/stealing wheels and tires off of them....now KLLM runs that bit on a trial basis. Also they are in the process of losing Walmart... how do you F up Walmart? But them I see the trucks and drivers with their pants around their buttcracks and I think..... "yup, there it is"

    I agree with you on all of it except the part about them losing walmart... They just (atleast they are telling poeple) signed a 5 year for Texas and Oklahoma.. I wish it was different nothing would please me more than to see the TM at Terrell get ran out on a rail..

    Could be, just what I've heard and given the fact that reputation precedes most people and entities, I find it very possible.
