    Do they have any lanes that could get me home on the east coast?

    With what they call the advanced fleet. Which is the prime freight they should be able to, but it would be more like 3-4 weeks out at a time, where on the east coast?

    I could pm you the number for the guy who hired me, he is laid back and would be happy to answers all your questions. He would be able to get you specifics on home time and all that jazz.

    I've been talking to Alex, she told me today that had east coast lanes and could get me home but I've read on here that they rarely run east coast.

    While I did training, we ran to new jersey as a team multiple times. Actually now that I'm thinking of it, wil-trans runs more east coast. But Jim Palmer does go there as well, ask Alex about it. Wil-trans is the sister company to Jim Palmer. It's run out of Springfield,MO.
     
    Chance27616 Thanks this.

    When I worked for Palmer I had a couple of loads to Jersey but I never delivered them. I usually met an East Coast guy in Ohio and traded him loads. I was living in Las Vegas at the time. Worked out well for both of us.
     
    Chance27616 Thanks this.

    That works for me, as long as I can get home when needed.
