    Who do you work for, where are you, and what do you do there? Don't give out anything you don't wanna but I'll get it started.

    Con-way Freight in the Philly region. I'm currently night line-haul but have done a lot of P@D in the past.

    I drive for a northeast PA reefer outfit..

    I run from our yard (where the loads are put together) down to Florida every week with anywhere from 5 to 10 stops usually.. I start making drops in Orlando and finish up in Gainesville..

    I used to run Miami every week with as many stops or more, that really sucked..

    N&M Transfer out of the neenah Wi. terminal. I peddle local in the City Of Oshkosh. Been on that bid run since 1998. Assigned a 40' liftgate trailer. Yea cause of the liftgate i get all the crapola deliveries but in the end it pays well.

    USF Reddaway line driver. I run all of Montana. Also only work nights. Usually 8 to 10 hours a night, with 7 hours usually driving. Get about 350 miles a night. Not union.. which doesn't bother me since my company takes good care of me. I love my job and the company. Wish we could get new equipment though. Aside from that, I got nothing to complain about. Not looking forward to winter.

    I remember those guys! They use to deliver stuff to one of the auto parts warehouses I worked at. Usually always the same driver, and he was really cool.

    City driver for YRC... sometimes work as a switcher which I do enjoy more. I run out of the metro areas of NY and CT. I dont have an assigned route but I do have an assigned truck. Currently laid off. Since Im part of the union they have to call me back when things pick up, but the guys below me arent and they dont have to ever bring them back.

    Still debating on going to the bigger terminal, its farther away from me but I would be woking everyday, but doing line-haul

    Retired from DATS out of Hurricane, UT, in 2008. Was called local P & D, but there was a lot of variety there. Stayed pretty much in Washington and Iron counties, but hit further out occasionally.
