    Any Current BCOs out there that can confirm or deny these numbers? Sounds really good, is it too good to be true? Looking for the real deal from Owner Ops out there doing it

    Another Flatbed company I ran with had a printer tallying dispatches in a controlled room, I got into it one evening and found that they ran 1.60 to 2.60 a mile and that was 20 years ago.

    2.40 a mile or more to the truck would be very good money imho. But don't take my word for it. Everything has increased in cost since my day.

    I don't think you will average that just coming in…..But, its safe to say I've been here almost 9 years and I average at least that…...

    The question is what's your average trip length and how many miles per week?

    Do the majority of your loads get the FSC paid?
