    My goal is to become an o/o in the years ahead. I currently drive for Swift and would like to continue to driver for them but I have been tracking the numbers and o/o with them just won't cut it as a solo; would barely make anymore as a solo o/o over solo company. JCT is a company I have looked at in the past. One thing I like about Swift is we have a terminal in Albuquerque which makes getting home easier. I have some questions regarding JCT in line with my personal situation.

    1. I notice more JCT trucks in the south then north. Is most of your freight across the southern part of the country?

    2. How about freight in the Albuquerque area? Do you have some good customers (at least inbound) in that area?

    3. What are some areas close to Albuquerque where I would be able to get outbound freight?

    Thanks for any help you can give on this.

    Ive been considering them the last few years and still keep them in mind, but I dont know if I can put up with the refer... Ive been doing dry van 99% of the time. I hope some solo drivers reply here and talk about there avg miles per load and if there still getting good miles. If dry freight keeps getting slower, I bet everyone will switch over to running refer.:biggrin_2554:

    I have run reefers in the past, especially while training. There is extra work but it didn't seem too bad. My concern was sleeping so I have been parking next to them when possible and haven't had a problem.
