    yes i know about them. just ended my lease with them. they broker their loads thru a company called artur express out of st louis mo. if yoy are interested in leasing on with this company better have ur truck paid off because they charge 17 percent on every ld that u pull and sometimes those ld pay a average of a 1.40 amile. then they take 1500.00 dollars for trlr deposit, that is deducted 100.00 a wk and if u leave the company the will hold that money for up to six weeks i have not been reimburst that money yet.upon signing on with these guys they require a 1448 dollars insurance down payment for first and last month insurance payment i had to leave this company due to being in a bad truck lease and just paid a full month insurance and have not recieved no reimburstment for over payment of insurance. they charged me for decales 50.00 dollars that i paid for myself eventually was reimburst on that they took almost every bit of my money off of my last ld that i had to drop in a yard to be repowered.

    You paint a very different picture than their ads, I figured it sounded too good to be true. I wish you well in your next carrier.

    I'm leased to RVS Express, their terminal in Sacramento is quite busy with their trucks and OO's. Just a few comments, like the above poster pointed out, they take 17% of your revenue from Artur Express, so far I am making good money in this setup but not as much as I would like to. RVS is simply a contractor to Artur Express. Artur provides the dispatch service, and everything else, all RVS provides is the operating authority. I'm in the process of getting my own authority and then I am going to contract directly with Artur and by-pass the middle-man known as RVS Express. I had to license my own truck, get my own IFTA license, pay for all of my own insurance so basically with a few more steps I have my own authority applied for. As soon as it comes through, I'm moving on. It would make more sense for an OO to lease directly with Artur rather than RVS in my opinion.

    It works like this, if when you take a load the dispatcher tells you that the load is paying $3500, then you take 83% of that or $2905 is what you will receive from in your settlement check.
