    Hi,
    Any decent companies running local or S/E regional offering weekend home time around Orlando - Jacksonville, fl area? Have all my endorsements, 8 months otr (Reefer) exp., clean record. Applied to DHL (P+D), QCD (local driver), will be calling Crete (they have a terminal/yard in Deltona), Old Dominion, Estes...
    U.S.xpress is claiming there's a dedicated route but they have a bad rep...CRST had a yard here, same with Marten planning on calling them to see if there's any local/dedicated or South-Eastern Regional with weekends off available. Any other carriers worth checking out? Florida Tank & lines claims to offer this but they have a shady reputation. @Chinatown your input is always helpful (had FreyMiller recently reach out to me but its for true OTR out 3-4 weeks). If there's someone that has a yard here or parking, that would be ideal. Also planning on calling Davis out of starke...
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    Fastenal may have something. Haven't seen any of their ads recently, but a couple drivers have posted on here in the past and said it's a good company and the pay is good. One of the drivers that posted lives in Orlando.
    Fastenal has sleeper trucks, day cabs, box trucks, pickup trucks and their race team trucks.

    Estes, Old Dominion, Southeastern Freight Lines probably be the best if you can get a line haul position.
