    There are some decent ones. Americold in Leesport, Pa is a good one.

    If you're on mileage pay, then running reefer is like running the northeast. They both suck. But if you're on hourly or percentage pay, then you're doing ok.

    But now that I'm starting to do reefer I will have to say lineage is worst I have seen so far. 4 hours to get loaded and when went to different one to deliver just plain rude the way the talk to you.

    Grocers Supply in Houston.

    Arrived 20 minutes early for a 2AM delivery appt. The guard shack tells me to go wait in the parking lot across the street and they'll call me on the CB when they're ready. They called me around 10 that morning, and gave me the very last door on the east side of the building, so that I would have to do a u-turn and then do a blindside back into the dock. I felt the forklift in the trailer around 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon, and they finally called and said I was empty around 6:30.

    16.5 hours. F that place.

    Spent 11 hours as us foods last week.

    Anything with capstone should be bulldozed. They all suck as soon as dead weight capstone gets in. If you have the misfortune of having capstone, unload yourself.

    How about any place that uses lumpers
    They all are terrible.

    I did reefer in the past and ain't ever pulling a reefer again unless rates are triple that of van/flatbed. too much waiting around
     
    alds, Farmerbob1 and slow.rider Thank this.
