    It's only showing 83 reefers so I would guess the rest is vans or other stuff. I'm sure there's hotshots and expeditors in there somewhere too

    Be really pushy - it'll be a conference call. Probably several other van drivers. Have a few lanes in mind. Register early and have your computer all signed in before time.

    Hard to say on tarp loads, depends on lots of factors.
     
    kduvall Thanks this.

    I think you're right - $2.25 loaded TTT, maybe - but it's not realistic with deadhead. Both @sawmill and I range 15-25% dead head miles, chops that 'all miles' loaded figure down.
     
    kduvall, spyder7723 and sawmill Thank this.

    And you can take the webinar multiple times. I would too - take screenshots for future reference.

    That was the most important part for me - determining revenue.

    Yes, they did tell me loaded miles so I have no illusions about that. Thanks again

    Exactly what Blair said. I've done it twice. She doesn't give you much time to peruse the board. Spends way too much time on other stuff you won't care about until you're signed on.
     
    blairandgretchen and kduvall Thank this.

    Hey driver... I live in Charlotte as well and I'm about to do Flatbed also but with a different company. I believe they use you guys brokers so it still works out. What and were should I look to move freight, to and from our area to try and average say $2.25 a mile?
