    If you know your break even mile cost, you can take anything that pays loaded and back with a profit.

    Cass Index has a average rate for different regions of the USA call it 2.20 for Reefer...

    When I had bought that first tractor we figured breakeven at 1.26 and freight was averaging 1.50 back then. A very long time ago.

    But shouldn't a hazmat load pay more than a non hazmat load ??

    I suppose so.

    But eh... I guess once the future Federal 5 million or god only knows how much insurance kicks in HM will be going up in rates.

    Running hazmat east to west ain't to bad, but I don't care to run it up and down the I95 corridor !!

    I'd be willing to bet it goes for under $2.00 mile.
