    R&L in my town sucks...My market is too small, end of the line terminal..Equipment shady, drivers let go pretty fast when the freight slows...

    But I have a happy friend out of Phoenix Az, big market, nice equipment, plenty of freight, busy year round

    Any LTL or P&D company can be good..Any particular terminal can be good or bad...You'll extract max value from your CDL, companywise...Just get on, hopefully make it a couple years if it aint that great, then jump ship..
    The company dont matter...any of them will do, R&L, YRC, ABF, UPS, DATS even..If theres freight, you'll work...which isnt always true..At Central Transport (my first LTL company), I got my 200 a night even with no freight, they'd send empties...LTL, P&D=good, one of them will suit ya just fine, hopefully it'll be the r and l...

    Its funny, Ive read every LTL thread..At rl carriers they, and the drivers make a big deal about the upgraded premium super awesome Binford 9000 seats in the trucks..I think thats funny....

    So I been here a month. My TM calls me in his office this morning and asks me if I want a mid day line haul position.
    Told him I'd think about it!
    What you guys think. Should I take it or stay on the P&D side

    If I'm not mistaken that is by the mile comma did you tell you what the pay or how many miles a day you'd average?

    I'm looking for a move in September. Got my eyes on R&L somewhere in the metro Atlanta area. I know they opened up a terminal in Kennesaw which would be awesome as I live there. Unfortunately I am moving at the end of July so the timing is terrible but the living cost here is ridiculous for Georgia. Will be moving down i20 towards Alabama exit 23. Hope I still qualify as this team otr is getting a bit old. I don't nessesarily mind running teams again if I can get home more. Prefer line haul solo though. Anyone in the Atlanta area got any leads or tips?

    Anyone run out of the Hatfiled, PA terminal? I applied for a P&D position and had an interview that went well. Just want to hear about how many hours I'd be working and whether the dispatchers are ok to deal with.
    Thanks for any info!
