    McElroy
    Coastal transport (formerly comcar I believe)
    Tidewater transit
    Cypress truck lines

    If you've insight on these companies, please share what you know.
    Thanks in advance!

    I worked in the small dump division that cypress has, and when we were slow we would hook on to flats. Cypress has a pretty good fleet right now, and what seems like quite a bit of running options. But I can tell you this, almost everything will be tarped, and cypress only provides you with 2 eight foot drops if I'm not mistaken, extremely heavy, and at times cumbersome because they're so large compared to what you're trying to tarp. I would personally go the route of tidewater, chemical tanks as you gain experience become a very lucrative career, flatbed is always going to be what it is,, a good way to make a living, but your advancement only goes so far.
     
    TNSquire and 650cat425 Thank this.

    No question about it, Tidewater!! Don't even think about flatbeds when you got a chance to pull tankers. Plus Tidewater keeps "tip top" equipment.
