    Ya but if they can get you home every weekend then It would be worth it to some. Don't get hung up on just the cpm. What accessory pays do they have? What type of freight? What kind of equipment do you drive? How often can they get you home? You gotta look at the whole picture. I would be willing to take less pay for more home time whereas someone else may not.

    Hi everyone I wanting to know about Paul transportation I am starting on oct.24 I live in Hopkinsville ky. Was just curious about where they mostly run at and what is the home time my recruiter told me that I was going to make .34cpm. And that the trucks are kenworth t660 and t680 anybody with any info would be very helpful thanks and stay safe out there.

    new drivers get whatever is available. most likely a 660. nothing special, its a work truck but can be made comfortable. if you are given a 660 get a thermelectric cooler, no space for fridge.

    i average between 2-3 weeks out and run mostly midwest. sitting in Chaparral NM atm but have been far west as CA, north as ND and east as NC. pull ALOT of steel, some sheet rock, ALOT of machines when in OK/Tulsa area.

    Ask questions till people tell you to shut up, then ask more if not sure. Otherwise if you do your job they will leave you alone. At the current time I have not spoken to any Paul employee in 4.5 days. The qualcomm is cellular based (frozen sap slow) and is the spawn of satan and a wart on hitlers ###. none of that unsafe safety stuff the big fleets add on, at orientation your told if you gotta chain up to just pull over and shut down.

    not sure about the pay thing, do you have fb experience? if not would explain the difference in pay im seeing. ask a recruiter on that one. they recently moved to a hometime under a load deal so it can be a bit chaotic when trying to plan.

    you can fuel up at any loves or pfj upto 150g a day so best to pick one for that 1kg shower deal each month. you can also siphon off 75g of DEF each day and sell on black market for extra drug money.

    if you have any other questions just ask, or if you see truck 448 come on by and hit me up.

    Thanks bud I really appreciate the info about Paul transportation, I have driving experience but no flatbed experience I have heard some other guys saying that they have a no forced dispatch is that true and do they give you enough time to tie down loads and make it to your next stop.

    indeed no forced dispatch, haventturned one down myself yet, i like money too much.

    as far as tie down time per load, having no fb xp, it will likely take you longer than a seasoned fb'er but you will have more than enough time to roll out. i often find myself calling the 90 about taking early delivery.

    Do you know what kind of freight? I've been needing to go to OK to pick up some equipment I bought but I just can't seem to find any decent loads over there.

    I know they haul a lot of steel. There's a lumber yard out of broken bow, malarkey shingles out of okc. Those are the 2 most common loads we haul out of ok. I don't think they pay very well though.
