    Same for me in Great Lakes area. If I do 10 hours tomorrow, I'll have more hours this week than I've had in a week for 6 months. I average 51-52 a week, on track for 59 this week

    Wow! 4200 on 1900 miles for produce. No wonder our rates suck so bad right now. If that’s a great rate for you guys, what in the hell do you normally haul for?

    You're just now to reason 412? In 2018 I was already at 8,909,000+.

    Us foods Memphis is one that will not allow driver unloads now. Let’s see how the lumpers do. I’m normally out of here in less than a hour.

    (4200÷1900)÷0.72=$3.07/mile

    Regional Reefer Avg =$2.22

    So the one you're criticizing is putting upward pressure on the regional average you dislike. But you're dishonest because you hold him to a standard you fail to define, which is to specify the rate you "feel" does not "suck so bad" specifically.

    In summary, you wrote an unsound argument based off a single vague premise. In this instance your thoughts are worthless. Better luck next time.
