    how much do hot shot loads pay per mile, I was doing the math and it needs to be about $1.80 per mile to make it worth it, is that about right the total expenses are about $21,500 a month is it reasonable to make that's with leasing onto a company and making 80% of the line haul

    $21,500 in expenses a month????? That's insane. $258,000 a year just on expenses. There's no way.

    No the $1.60 Is for myself including my salary and for the company theirs would be $1.80 because they get 20% of line haul, is that easy to make ?
