    I've noticed to that under the entire list of my past loads it's only showing 4 of them to have any deadhead miles... The majority of them show 0...

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Yeah if you book before your empty it will show up that way. When your empty it shows the city you were located when you booked the load, not where the last drop was.

    They just changed the rate per mile at the top to loaded miles only too. It's still way off, and a meaningless number anyways.

    Just put in the new headlight housings with projector beams. went from led back to halogen with the repairs to the hood and new housings. They suck. Has anyone had good luck with either HID or led in a sealed enviroment housing?

    Thing that worries me is i know the leds have a little fan on em, but there's only so much air in the enclosed space where my bulbs are so im worried about heat dissipation and build up.

    I recently came out as flatbeder an have been looking at Mercer.

    How's their training? It's a one week course right? I just feel like that's not enough time to learn proper securement. It's really the reason why I shied away from transitioning to flatbed. Always felt like I would need 6 months or so at a mega to get enough experience to go out on my own.

    I really like the company that I work for but I just can't stand doing otr dry van. I was absolutely miserable and ended up selling my truck at the end of 2018. Bought another one recently and want to focus on work that I like instead of money.

    Im looking to do local work out of Chicago and was wondering if it was possible with Mercer? The requiter is saying $500-600 50-100 mile loads around Chicago is very doable but I have my doubts. Thoughts?
