    So just curious, what’s the minimum rate per mile that you’d go out of Los Angeles to let’s say TX/KS/OK area?

    Look into Admiral Merchants. All open deck work, and I've never heard a negative thing about them.

    Am I missing something?

    If you have your own authority why lease in with someone? I thought the whole idea of having your authority was to get away from leasing?

    The dispatcher I have is not the best he drives himself so he has alot going on, leasing on to a company at the time wasnt an option, since now I'm all cleared and good it's just an idea unless I find a good open deck dispatch thatll jeep me busy

    2.70+ been running that lately but lots of waiting time and sitting time, would be great to find a dispatcher who has customers and direct freight. Load boards are crap and it's getting worse

    Wouldn’t u ship be a better option than leasing on with someone? I mean you already have your own authority.
    Not trying to be a Jackwagaon here, trying to learn as well.

    U=ship???? It would be impossible to stay busy using them, more for the guy going on vacation type of deal.
