    Any one running power only under their own Authority ? It reads 1.85 a mile $50 detention and stays within JB hunts network no outside loads , 2500- 3000 a week power only . Just curious about thoughts on this .

    $4,600.00 to $5,500.00 per week gross. Can you turn a profit with that kind of income? What is your operating cost per mile?

    Of course I can , I think only someone with a really bad truck payment , crazy insurance and money handling issues would struggle with that . I run my own numbers and have my own trailer. I was wondering if anyone is running on this program and their experience. Just Curious

    I think you will probably find that in network for that will be a heavy dose of the Northeast.

    And I agree, if you can't make it at $1.85 mile, you probably should consider a different line of work.

    You don’t need your own authority to gross that......

    And $1.85 in the NE blows.

    Yeah I was told not east c
    They sent a email today -No NYC no NewEngland states East of 35 North of 10 . Run off a list of recommended jobs , private load board for carriers only . Fuel discount and quick pay . Drop & Hook .
    They want a 7-10 day commitment each run , max 14-21 . That's the nuts and bolts of the info I have .

    Tried it. They sent me 150 miles to get an MT dry van, then after I got it, they wanted to give me a $1.20/mile load, with 400 miles and 2 days on it.

    I dropped the trailer and told them thanks, but no thanks.

    The power only load board is a joke too.

    Ok, so you'd do fine running 200-300 miles / day at $1.85 / mile then?
