    Reddaway pays low compared to Old Dominion, Saia and others, but we get free health benefits, which after you do the math it even out with the rest of the LTL companies.

    The money is doing Line Haul driving.

    Linehaul at my place currently tops out at $0.63 per mile, plus clock time for drop/hooks, fueling, etc. The guys with easy runs work 10 hours a day for $90k per year. Home every day. Insane.

    If you come over to the food hauling world, you won't be doing a ton of driving, but you'll make good dough last week with labor day and all I grossed $1,800.

    Pretty much means you are driving doubles, like ups,fedex,saia,OD,Yellow etc from terminal to terminal.

    LTL freight companies have P&D (pickup and delivery) drivers who work during the day and are paid by the hour (most are over $25/hr nowadays). At night (generally), the linehaul drivers move the freight between terminals so that it will arrive at the destination terminal in time for the P&D drivers to deliver it the next day.

    Many LTL linehaul drivers pull doubles, but regional companies like mine only pull long boxes.
