    I have been driving for Transport America now for 9 months. Starting as a brand new driver, I have had a great experience with them, as well as a couple of friends of mine who has started with them. You get good miles, good starting rate, pay more for driving placarded loads, and very safety conscious! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Glad it's working out for you. Did you get your CDL through them, or did you do school?

    They are a trucking company and do not offer CDL courses. I would not recomend taking a course through a company do to the contractual obligations.

    Im enjoying being OTR. Currently Im OTR/midwest. My loads are mainly East of 35 to the East coast. My average milage weekly is from 2500-3000 while keeping a %100 ontime record.

    Dedicated is a little different. Your home every weekenf for 34-48 hours. The account I was on gave me 1500-2000 miles weekly, although it paid a higher rate since it was a placarded account. . all accounts pay differently.

    You can generally go dedicated not long after you start as long as you show a willingness to be ontime and safe.
