    Could someone do good at SNI doing only regional loads like around TX and surrounding states?

    There is a guy on this board Etch5858 out of Texas. He has been trying to get me over to Schneider for years and was telling me he rarely leaves the state yet makes enough that he's happy.

    Texas is all about intrastate. You can usually get a good rate in, but really stink the place up going out. Your best bet is to go in, work for a couple of days, and hop out to MS or LA and start getting good rates going back home.

    Schneider has 65,000 plus trailers.. LS about 16,000 sooo nope no such thing as 72 hr rule.

    Sni policy is if they get you a trailer more than 25 miles out if route they will pay you 1.30 cpm to get the trailer.

    i once had to get my load relayed in battle mountain nv because of engine issues. Aftetwards i chose to pickup a load out of salt lake city and since there was no empty trailers for me here so sni found me one in a salt factory in utah and paid me like 250 miles to pick it up.. Soooo nope you wont be fivhting over empties lol thats for #### sure.

    Between 9 am and 2 pm daily. Thats about peak time for any load boards really.
    But yea dont get too greedy taking 3 and 4 loads back to back because more often than not it can backfire against you if you miss a load or have live unload takes too long youll be screwed. I would do back to back loads only if they were drop and hooks.

    But even then sometimes you get load cancelled and they ask you if you want to co tinue with other loads or cancel those off as well. So yea take it easy at first.

    me personally i used to surf the load board whenever i could jist to get a feel because sometimes in middle of night loads come up that werent there in morning.

    I'm calling BS!! Show us your settlement! A Schn driver posted his settlement in another thread.

    LMAO.... I run a particular lane and I won't say locations but the broker is SNI logistics and I've ran that run for as much as $6 a mile(580 miles). BS!!
