    I'd wait until you see how elogs actually affect your earnings, then wait a few more months for your tickets to drop off. No way I'd jump to foodservice. That's work.

    If I were you I'd stick with the union job you have. Hard to say that as much as I dislike unions

    Reddaway is mostly non union. I'm non union. But there ain't much of a pension at YRC and Holland anyways.

    Two easy overnight routes gets me into the low to mid 70s, logging 40-42 hours. Four heavy locals will get you $100k+, but I'm too old for that BS.

    I don't foresee a large influx of drivers fleeing e-logs, so I'd wait and see what happens. There's pretty much always an opening at McLane.

    Hello, I have a quick question for the McLane guys. I have an interview on Wednesday at the Concord NC foodservice location. Looks like they have 40 or so daycab. Lady on the phone said they do Bojangles, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut etc. Would that kind of work be overnight keydrops? How long should I expect to be on the extra board? How many total deliveries is a 2 day trip on the foodservice side?

    some places are overnight keydrops, some aren't. you'll have to ask

    Typically you can get 6 to 9 stops in a 48 foot truck. 1100 to 1500 cases.
