    Well - yes. When I'm looking for loads, - on the board, $2.40 is my minimum. - But - you have to factor in deadhead and LS % to get you to your running average - ALL miles, for me that's been about $1.70.

    Many are doing WAY better than that - even now.

    Take the Landstar webinar , you can do it as many times as you like.
    It's where I was headed before my Dad ģot sick.
    I got some great freight from the LS broker in the dead of winter out of Phoenix, when I was leased to another company.

    I don't know an exact average for this year but I live in charlotte and usually stay within 4-500 miles of charlotte…without going to OH/IN(I mean Ill go a few times but, i don't look for loads that way)
    I don't run west of Nashville/north of NJ. I would say I average about 1800 to 2600…….. home weekends….

    Yea, its all inclusive and they break it out at %100

    Also that %73 is with your own flatbed also….not if you pull a company trailer….

    Thank you very much! How much is the deadhead insurance, I couldnt find a price on the website. I konw it will depend on driving record, etc, I have one ticket in last three years 60/55. Would you know a ballpark weekly number, and do they finance this? Downpayment required? Thanks again, sorry to blow you uo this wat....

    I guess you're talking miles here, not dollars. Any place come to mind that I DONT want to go to, where you're guaranteed to get stuck for days?
