I feel like flatbed is a toss up between Mercer and Landstar. Landstar has more flatbed freight it seems, but their system is quite a bit different where you pretty much fend for yourself. That works for some people. Mercer has slightly less freight, but the atmosphere was more relaxed and open to teamwork with a coordinator and the agents and all. At least by my observation.
I can’t speak for DSV or that other outfit. I know a step would do best at Landstar out of that line up. But if I had a step deck I needed to pull and was looking for a place to do it at, I would be calling Admiral Merchants first.

Trucking Jobs in 30 seconds
Every month 400 people find a job with the help of TruckersReport.
Don't forget Bennett, Admiral Merchants, and Ace Doran. I'm pretty sure at Admiral Merchants you can run their freight through their agents and you can find your own loads on the load boards.

What are the dead zones in dry van?
I live in North Carolina on the I-95 side close to Kenly and typically get to the midwest as fast as possible. Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, I just try to live on 70, 74, 80, 39, etc.
I have limited experience driving out west, just on the southern end I only ever had one trip from Wisconsin to Arizona, then San Diego back to Arkansas.
I have absolutely no interest in driving in the northeast until they appreciate truckers more and build more truck stops and not take 13 hours to unload 20 pallets. Anything east of Pittsburgh and north of Richmond, VA I haven't been to since I was a company driver.
I would like to run flatbed again but I don't think I have the clearance for a headache rack.

Also there is NO requirement to go to Louisville every year for an inspection.
