I'm currently trying to find answers to these questions and would greatly appreciate your insights:
- When California farmers produce oranges or peaches, what are the typical destinations on the East Coast where they send their produce? Do they primarily sell to grocery chains or engage in direct sales with fruit trading companies on the East Coast?
- What is the estimated range for a quote on shipping a refrigerated truck from California to New York? Some reports suggest it's around $3.5 per mile. So, if I were to send a truck from San Francisco to New York City, covering approximately 3,000 miles, would the one-time shipping cost be around $10,500?
- Considering the $10,500 shipping cost, what portion of that income typically goes to the truck driver? Is it a 50:50 split between the driver and the company?
