    I am currently teaming with my wife , I am trying to get straight up answers on what company is the best to team at. We just left Quest because their freight is slow, and they feed the older drivers first and more . We live in Atlanta, stay out 3-4 weeks . We’re just looking for a company that wants hard runners . Any info is appreciated... thank you .We will even consider team lease if it’s good .

    You might want to look into McKesson and the contractors that run for them. You will essentially be doing overnight very time sensitive medicine east of Denver to Mass. Memphis is one location, Atlanta should have another.

    You do not touch nothing, they unload, reload scrap bales cardboard right back to your original shipping location. You will however need to display prey behavior in unmarked trucks and keep mouths shut as these are million plus dollar loads with narcotics that any street thug will kill both of you in a heartbeat for.

    The pay will take care of itself when you get into the groove. As far as the freight future, there is a aging population gobbling millions of pills and taking god only knows how many IV's per day in all of our hospitals. You will never not have freight with this kind of work.

    Thanks .. the problem I have seen at this forum is the responses , so many and they all are from serious to all out rediculous. What do you think of JCT ? Thx.

    Don't really have an opinion on JCT. From what I've read, about the same as most lease deals.
    If you want real money, go linehaul where each of you can make $90K + per year. Yep, that's not split, that pay is for each of you.

    Friend of mine told me Estes Express has been buying new Kenworths for teams. I haven't seen them though, so don't know what they look like.

    Right now, I'm just living the good life; don't have to work unless I just want to.
