    We do all of the above, however, we hardly ever go to UP yards and I've never been to CP....we do go to BNSF LPC and Corwith (never been to Cicero or Western)....we do Regional, Local and crosstowns, 20', 20' tri axle (they have about 50 new tri axles), 40' (they just bought a convertible 20'-40' tri axle), 45' and 53' foot trailers.

    You commit to one run a day, 5 days a week. If you want more, then just ask, it's that simple. Personally I like local runs, I do 2 to 3 a day. Occasionally they have weekend work. We are on paper logs. Can purchase fuel at the yard (crazy discounts lately). Have their own shop at the yard can pretty much do anything, very good pricing....

    But in all honesty, coming from other companies, the reasons I like them so much are:

    1. Transparency (settlements, you see confirmations, they communicate their plans)
    2. Family owned
    3. Dispatched by the owners
    4. Owners are truck drivers (BTDT)
    5. Owners AND their families work there (as much, if not more hours than the O/O!!!!)
    6. They bend over backwards to see you succeed (not BS, they really are good, honest people)
    7. When others sit, we work.
