    So myself and a friend plan on going into the trucking industry, and from what I’ve read Teams have a better earning potential. So we found the trucking school we’re attending, and we plan on using a local grant in order to pay for the schooling. I live in Phoenix, Arizona; does anyone know of any good team driving companies for people with no experience? I was looking at Schneider, but reviews are so mixed it’s tough to make a decision. So I’ve done as much reading as I could over the last few months, and finally decided I’d ask the community their opinions. :) Please and thank you.

    Get some experience as a team then go with the premier LTL's Team such as Old Dominion, Estes or UPS.

    I’ve always thought about Old Dominion, but our goal is to go O/O at some point

    Not really. TWT advertises $.60cpm split.
    Titan, Danny Herman, Transport America are dry van & the others are refrigerated.
    Titan trucks run 70 mph; don't know about the others.
    3 or 4 mph difference in companies won't really make any difference at all on payday.

    Fair play, appreciate the advice nonetheless friend. We only plan on busting out our first year in these companies anyway. Then we’ll try to move to a company like United Roads if they’ll take us. If not, then we’ll figure out somewhere else to lease.
