    And what,I hear you cry, of average length of haul??

    OK...it is broken down thus.
    <150=4
    150-300=0
    300-500=5
    500-750=11
    750-1000=7
    1000-1500=1
    >1500=1
    Longest length of haul= 1,864 Waterloo,IA-Santa Fe Springs,CA
    Shortest=48 Fort Worth,TX-Wilmer,TX
    Average length of haul: 644 miles

    Hope all this is of some use to people!!

    As a comparison, my averages for the first 7 weeks with Mcleod were:
    Ave:1,898
    Ave Gross:683

    Not much of a comparison.....
    which means I am getting on average 17&#37; more miles and 22% more money with crete than with mclousy......

    I have been driving for Crete for 1.5 years and these numbers are about right. I also got into a groundhog day feeling around Iowa in all that snow and I second everything the op has said.
    I worked for C.R. England - just so I could reenter the profession - for 6 months and the difference is like night and day particularly the pay.
    BTW I am also English as is one of our road service guys. Makes it easy dealing with office staff because our accent makes us stick out. They remember what you last called about a definite plus.
     
    bluv37 Thanks this.
