    Yes, on the LTL runs you make your money during the day doing stops not by laying down the miles. You get $20/stop runs have 1-25 stops per load. The 75% D/H is one sided the LTL runs are 100% d/h on the pickup side but 99% driver unload. For the truckload stuff there is some d/h too. I drove 136,xxx miles in my first 365 days with the company.

    I don't see how rookies can handle those furniture deliveries trying to back in alleys in town fighting traffic. Broyhill had smaller single axle tractors .

    Alot of them cant, thats the biggest part of the turn over, which is still way lower then most any other company that hires rookies.

    W/S does it with full size equipment. Just mind your own little world, W/S seems to have a system that works for them.

    Yeah , all the carriers have systems that work for them . Mostly paying drivers 1980's wages working over 70 hours a week to survive . You mind your little paper log 80 hour a week world until EOBR's are forced on you then we'll see how your system works .

    Quit talking like that when you've never worked for this company. I've watched you on here just post comment after negative comment on a company you really don't know much about. Take it elsewhere because you're nothing more than a windbag trucker.

    I run Monday thru Friday home one or two nights during the week home weekends. 25 to 30 stops and 1500-2000 miles a week. Shortline is the way to go. I also have a dedicated route I run.
