    North Jackson, OH is the closet to terminal to PA. when i was there depending on what your doing OTR was .38 ( with a hazmat load .40 ). Regional was .34 without Hazmat end. and .38 with. I heard they increase the pay and you can check to see what they pay on the website. for fuels stops was Pilot's, Flying J. I haven't drive for them in two years but I'm think of going back to them.

    i don't know much about OTR stuff but i think that would be Team stuff. Running area will depend on what you want to do
