    Sup all!

    How's it going for everyone? Thing's have slowed down but thankfully, company I work for has enough to work to keep us all going!!! I'm hearing other companies (from my friends) are dead, slow and have been off for days.

    Anyone else in the same boat?

    It's really mind-blogging!!! Holidays and all... you'd think...........it'd BOOM? 2015 has been definitely an interesting year!

    it was slow this week I usually do 2 to 3 loads a day I was doing one a day but all of them had detention so it was a bad week but it was all over my friend a dry van operator told me that even the water plans in maine barely had any loads, but holiday season is here and stores need to be restocked so lets hope this picks up or my friends and family are getting cheap gifts this xmas!

    It's slow in Baltimore. With us being in a holiday season and we are slowing up, I don't think 2016 is looking to start off on a good note. I have also heard that domestic loads are slowing too. 2008 all over.

    It's been slower than normal for almost 3.5 months. Seems to be picking back up, but it will die down soon till mid February.

    Anyone in KC have a report on freight trends?? If I can't do close to $2500/wk after fuel I'm going to have to keep hauling cars. I'm almost ready to quit the car business, buy a truck and pull cans. The car business has really slowed down, but it always does around now until January.

    you won't make that pulling cans, a lot of places pay 1.4 a mile.

    $1.40 X 2500=$3500 - $1000 in fuel. $2500/week after fuel.. 2500 miles unrealistic?
