I just started running intermodal 3 months ago. I lease my truck under Rose Transportation, Road One is taking them over. Pretty sure they have an office out your way. You can definitely make that. Just remember “early bird get the worm”
Running Dallas to Houston port and back you can make a 6-700 a day after expenses. Hauling 53’ cans 5 state area has been paying me 8-900 a day after expenses. Beware, containers are a sore ### thumb going through big chicken houses. I ran my truck for a few years for landstar and never had a single hick up or violation. Been hauling cans here to go home more and the law has definitely been on my tail.
