    Swift/knight just announced they will be spending hundreds of millions preordering self driving trucks if you drive for swift, knight, Warner they will be spitting you out as soon as this rolls out .. all drivers need to boycott these garbage companies.

    I saw a Volvo ad with Van Damme doing the splits between 2 moving trucks. Probably his best movie in recent years.

    I think you confused with the cost of the trucks. Because there isn't that many made yet

    Yea yes they are an awesome company. Take a break in Memphis when it's 108 degrees outside and so hot your Qualcomm overheats and shuts off and get a call asking why the truck is idling. Mmmhmmm great company.

    I wasn't there very long. I got my Cdl through them. Was being trained for otr team driving but I was training with a guy who was running a regional dedicated account so as a newbie it was very confusing and then they put me doing regional non dedicated. I expressed all this like I thought I was doing otr team driving they were like nah. I was like I'm not ready for this at all I've been focused on learning otr team driving this whole time. They told me they really run teams. I was like oh that's cool cause I specifically mentioned that like a lotta times so they put me solo otr and it didn't go well. I was not prepared for it and I was so self aware of it that I told yo I am not prepared for this like all the time. I got fired but I was relieved because Jesus Christ who allows someone on the road in a truck when they tell you don't do it. That's swift to me. Like straight up danger zone company. They will put anyone on the road. I don't think you even need a pulse.
