    About the same fast fuel runs 3 tanks he said they have cut him back as well on his rates. He's busy but I'm trying to figure out why diesel is still higher than gasoline if they've cut the rate for fuel haulers. I'd have to lease on as well and only place I know where I can still do what I do with grain is bossleman idk what they pay might be worth a call though lease on for the slow time then go back to grain. I still have a PTO box on both my trucks just don't have a driveshaft.

    It's been painfully slow for us since Jan 1. Starting to decide whether I should go someplace else in the country for work, but from what I'm seeing there isn't much going on anywhere else for end dump work.

    Sea Port terminal driver here we are going to hit record highest since 2014 this year. But at the moment we are not importing as much freight from over seas. We had a 2% decrease in export but import we had 14% increase. By 2020 we should be at nearly %40. Seeing that most drivers pull west. You road warriors should see increasing freight in the coming years.

    Not for us local fuel haulers with these gas prices. Plus our crude guys aren't making phillips 66 any money so we get stuffed with work.

    I guess they are winners and losers in this economic times. As trucker we need to adjust or take up different hauling jobs. To make ends meet

    Have you ever worked with US Bulk? Are they decent people, I think they are near Pittsburgh. I know I see Payne's trucks all over Baltimore, they are based out of Fredericksburg, VA

    They are all owner operator, can provide trailers. I talked to them and they come of as good guys, unfortunately I am not an O/O, if I make that move I would definetly call them. I know Payne takes O/O's as well, and Strawbridge and Camz broker out some work, but I've been out of the dump business awhile now so dont know how the market is.
