    Some accounts want twic card and Canadian access but I'm unable to obtain so it's not required.
    Solo drivers stay east of I35,teams run everything west of I 35.

    Safety Dept sucks though,expect to get hassled every time you set off stability control at 15-30 mph.I don't take any crap as a driver,Ive told safety what I think about their bs,threatening to bring me in for retraining...I just laughed.

    TA has really gone down hill in the last year or so.
    I drove for them from 2010 to 2015 and loved it there. i left for a year and came back in Jan 2017. It seems like the new Eagan Safety Director (Dean) wont believe a driver at all and automatically believes the four wheelers side of the story. Everything else seemed to be good except an occasional waiting for empty trailers. They are owned by a canadian company and also partnered with other companies. They have lost the small company feel and now lost in the giant conglomerates.

    Yeah I'm currently with them, not sure how much longer. I was out of Janesville, it closed. Now I'm out if Eagan. That Dean guy is a good man but he goes by the books. ####ing annoying how hard we're micromanaged. Won't long now until this rat jumps this sinking ship. They're genuinely a pretty poor company. I reckon they're going to eventually close their doors and transfer assets to CFI, sister company ; also owned by transforce .

    Will the truck drivers of Transport America, along with the other employees of Transport America, be able to transfer over to CFI to save their jobs?

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!
