    On the Chicago Russian website people are complaining right and left about how bad the dry van business is right now. Rates down, companies bankrupt, drivers laid off, etc. Is that the same as what you experience?

    Everyone and their brother jumped in last year, The quicker they jump out the better.Only the beginning, even if rates go up, it will be too late for many. Yes rates are terrible right now. At least 20 % down which equates to almost a Drivers wage.

    Rates are great. Making great money here. Great time to drive. Plus with modern technology and capitalism driving keeps getting easier and easier.
