    Thomas Young is now the head of training he is not the same person you new now he's all about getting people in to ruck as fast as possable. I called him when I started to run into issues with my DM to find out what to do and who to talk to and all he said was to take it up with my DM even tohugh the DM was the problem nouthing but the runaround there.

    AS for trailer problems, I was left with one that had no breaks (2 frozen chambers and a broken slack adjuster) and to bad tires. take a look at the tire pictures, the one missing chunks didnt get replaced Trans AM said it looked good rnought to them and wouldnt pay for it.

    Calalan07,

    I don't understand the first part of the questions, please re write the questions.

    What area does TA run? For the most part, TA is a refer company that hauls meat originating from meat houses. These meat houses are all over, like Kansas, Iowa, Colorado, Texas, Arkansa, Tennessee, Missouri etc.:biggrin_255: More often than not you will deliver these loads to points east of the Rocky Mountains. TA does run loads west of the Rocky Mountains taking them into California. TA delivers to the northeast, far as Maine, and southeast, far as Florida. I have heard that we take beer into Oregon, so as a solo driver you can get around.
     
    calalan07 Thanks this.

    Transam has no drop yards. All they have is Rockwall and Olathe yards. If you stick around, yea, you'll start going back to a lot of the same places, especially the meat plants and wally world DC's.
    As far I know, TA has no dedicated rtes, if thats what your asking.
     
    calalan07 Thanks this.

    *sighs* Wanna go home. Trying to go home. Everything seems to be conspiring against me tho. Took trk in for PM and it got deadlined for a DOT issue. Seems like I have a small hole in the flex part of the exhaust and no I didn't catch it myself. Its up under the trk. Also has a water pump issue that I've been babying for a month and a half now. Cat won't warranty the replacement till its starts to puddle. Finally started that so its getting replaced also.
    Was given a loaner trk to pick up a load to go home with and now the tlr I'm trying to pick up has no brakes. *sighs some more*
