    I am looking at this company because they run close to my home in Eugene, OR and run primarily I-5 corridor. I have applied and gotten the green light from the company but I want some insider info if I can. everything I've heard about them sounds good and they seem to be a good stable company. I would sure appreciate any relevant input on this particular company. Thanks

    I have been with them 3 months now. They have treated me fair so far. I run I-5 anywhere between Seattle to Los Angeles weekly. You can go home and get restart on weekends or stay out if you choose. My dispatcher keeps me busy and is awesome. We haul alot of Fred Meyer and Georgia Pacific freight. Also Ross Dress For Less. Physical is simple. Lots of LA freight. A few times I have gone to AZ and NM which is a relief to get off the I- 5 corridor if you can. It can be tedious! They start at .38 cpm but if you run 9500 per month or more its an extra .02 cpm. Good hire on bonus, good medical plan. They have been good to me thus far. Trucks are well maintained and I have a clean idle truck so I can idle in CA if needed. All Volvo and Freightliners. Blue Tree system electronic logs very easy. Dispatcher easy to get ahold of, all dry van. They are related to UTI out of Gary IN, which run reefer. Market is solely I-5 corridor.I park at the Portland Terminal and live 25 miles away in WA. Can run home if I want to shower, do laundry etc. Otherwise I try to take a couple days and stay out 2 weeks. Alot of drivers run 2300 per week and go home on weekends. Its your preference. Shop is friendly and the guys there know their business. Office personnel friendly and helpful. Terminal has good driver lounge, showers, laundry, big screen tv. Plenty of empty trailers, and alot of the time they preload trailers at the yard for going south. Good experience thus far.
