    They started out at .25 cpm 7 years ago, that seems like a big jump on a recession.

    the whole moral of the story is to not mess with prime inc.,wil-trans or now o&s trucking as it always ends badly. (and yes i know there are thousands of prime drivers getting filthy rich and are your own boss and do what you want to without taking orders from anyone)

    I guess I missed something. Why was this driver fired from wil-trans? And then poof! next post he gets everything supposedly owed him and then some. Then promotes some website and solicits writers and photographs. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted!

    Last year, I heard through an Ex-Employee (David H) Wil-Trans merged into Prime, Inc.several years ago .....

    Prime, AKA Sucess Leasing started a fleece lease for Drivers where Wil-Trans rents a truck to a driver supplied by Prime, Inc trade-ins. The Lucky Driver who pull a Prime Trailer under a Prime Logistics load have no idea what the rate is and are paid a flat/fixed rate per mile.

    Then the Lucky Independent Leassor/driver pays Wil-Trans $750 dollars in weekly installment for a 3rd rate Freightliner Century Class that burns oil and has bad injectors...some units have upto 750,000 thousand miles. The perpetual lease payments to Prime, Inc via Sucess Leasing via Wil-Trans keeps all the good ole boys in Springfield laughing all the way to the bank.... After it was all said and done the Driver/Leassor/Operator was earning in a whopping $375.00 Dollars a week after fuel,lease,taxes and expenses. They require( leased thru Prime, Inc) all trucks be equiped and use Qualcomm Satellite Communications and E-Logs as " Independent Operators".

    Update: they are testing all the "Heavy Haulers" aka Obese Drivers for an unspecified routine and costly clinical trial know as a SPE(Sleep Apnea Evaluation) for a mere 2800.00 dollars and payable through payroll deductions from guessed it " PRIME, Inc.

    for more Insanity from Wil-Trans and it's parnter in crime...PRIME, Inc.

    So what happened with Wil Trans...I've been trying to follow you over the forum and I seem to see that you went with Arnold? I am just asking because my partner and I may be going to orientation with them next week or the week after and I have had trouble finding much out. The biggest issue is that I have 2 English (couch potato) Bulldogs so it limits our options considerably...a lot of companies allow pets but usually only one.
