    I am a new driver with 1 year experience. I have my tank/haz-mat & doubles/triples endorsements. I'm moving near Jackson Tennessee & would really like to be home every night. What companies offer LTL/Local deliveries & how much can I plan to make? Any ideas on the chances of being hired driving locally right away? Thanks

    the job market in this area, is slim for anything local. There is a big averitt terminal,old dominum,yellow and a conway lt. There are several small "regional"type companies that pull van freight, the jacksm market has a big demand for flat bed.

    I was hopin to get a job delivering fuel, seems like it would pay the best. Do you know who I should contact when I get to Jackson?

    might want to look at the local newspaper help wanted section, the jackson sun. The commercial appeal is out of memphis tn
