    I have seen a half dozen Covenant trucks pulling Big E trailers. With loads on them. Has Covenant bought Big E out?

    I think they're just doing power when Estes needs freight moved and is short on trucks. You see England trucks pulling GI freight trailers sometimes.

    Estes sometimes hires outside carriers to move truckload freight direct to the consignee. Usually these are the customers that take F O R E V E R to get you unloaded. I imagine the reasoning is, why should Estes pay their local guy his hourly pay to sit there when they can get one of the bottom feeder companies have their guys do it for free? More money in Estes bank account this way.

    Yes we do estes trailers! And pups doubles to.

    Most are hazmat loads. They all are drop and hook.

    All or most go east to west. It all pays the same. Low.

    we been pulling estes load for awhile. They even load covenant trailers with there stuff.

    I know this an old post but I work for estes, and the Covenant drivers take the 53' trailers to the local terminals and the P & D drivers deliver them out. I also have spotted emtpy 53' trailers at shippers and returned later and picked them up full and brought them back to the terminal to be picked up by Covenant drivers.
