    Thank you for pointing this out. I directly attribute this to the quality of drivers that we hire. I set the bar pretty high, and I am seeking people that are truly professional, not just the ones that sit under that sign at the TA restaurant counter. If your DAC and PSP are a train wreck with accidents and violations, better to seek life elsewhere.
     
    McUzi and Veteran driver Thank this.

    Joe I really think you want to delete item 4 in post number 70.

    Still trying, eh Dale? Nothing better to do than stir the pot? Was there a specific part I should remove, or are you still just disgruntled with life in general?

    It says 1800-2200 miles a week. So what exactly is the driver doing for most there time. Waiting for loads in aaTS someplace that will pay enuf or they waiting at shiiper/receivers a lot?

    Hopefully not too much sitting at shippers/receivers! But we have little control over that other than trying to avoid that location in the future. If you do get stuck, it's $25 an hour after the first two. Pretty vanilla.

    Sometimes you will wait in the TS for a load, but our runs are mostly short so the majority of the time that you are sitting in TS is probably because you only needed to run 350 miles that day. I rarely book loads over 500 miles. Don't need too. I don't have any 130,000 mile per year trucks in my fleet of 13. Again, don't need too.
