    Just got an email from a recruiter offering a dedicated "hydro" Conestoga position. Any idea what this is? The email did not give many details and I am wary of replying to recruiters unless I am serious because its like feeding sharks....

    Hydro is Knight Transportation's 'Elite' Dedicated/Flatbed fleet. The conestogas are a perk, as such. This used to be the KNIGHT / SAPA account.

    I'm not a flatbedder, but if I were, I'd consider this seriously, for a company flatbedder position. A wonderful mature friend of mine has been there for six years, after getting his start at Western Express.

    You are more than welcome to p/m me for more information; I'll share what little I have to clarify his information.

    Best wishes, either way. I'd reply to that e'mail, were i you.

    Tomcat~ :)

    I don't know anything about how this division is run or who controls it. But, it is still Knight-mare Transportation. Nothing could get me to return to a horrible company.

    Did you ever get back w/them? Hydro has nothing to do w/water, btw... it's their specialty metals division. Just wondering, be safe!

    Looks like Hydro is an aluminum company based in norway and they are a very important client. Used to be called SAPA.
    Interesting looking gig , I wonder if they will keep going through the shutdown.
    Might give them a call tomorrow to get more facts.

    Yep, told you about the SAPA part. Guy I know running for them is still rocking the miles and the money. Let me know. He's a pretty great friend of mine, and he has LESS years in than I, and makes quite the better coin. I'm just not cut out for flatbedding. Tanks was my forte' .. and now I'm intrastate; home daily / off weekends, and loving it.

    PM me for his blogspot if you'd like more info; best wishes!

    Tomcat :)
