    What are your thoughts about Shelton Trucking? Can you make decent money? I am currently looking into the company. They will be training me for flat bed work. I am unaware of the company history.

    The former Shelton drivers were happy because P&S was an upgrade from Shelton. Shelton's equipment was garbage. Most of the trailers had to be replaced immediately, and the tractors weren't much better.

    That said, I (a former driver from another P&S owned carrier, HS Express) would consider other options. P&S is having problems of a financial type, maintenance is taking the majority of the hits. And the contracted rates are simply trash. I'm thinking P&S got caught in a couple of bidding wars for contracts, and kept undercutting themselves rather than walk away.
