    I currently running for UPS frieght as an Oo. It's 1.02 + fsc which is 20 cpm this week. They cover tolls, scales, provide plate and permits a few dollars a month for pre pass and ezpass. They have gotten rid of most of the old trailers, nice new ones. You run 2500 to 3k+ a week they use trippak, and pay in 24 hours of receiving it. But it's got to get there meaning dropping in the box on Monday and you get paid Thursday so if you drop them through the week money flows. Com data fuel card with discounts off the cash price. Mostly terminal to terminal lots of overnight driving during the week you do 450 to 650 mile trips on the weekend is when you score the big 800+ mile trips. Paper logs but you can only log 63mph for the day max 693 miles per drive cycle. You'll do some sitting but by the end of the week your like idk how I ran that many miles. Dispatch over the phone and that's all I can think of hope that helps any questions I'll try to answer them

    They ask for 7 to 10 days on the road, you can stay home as long as you want. I do 18 to 21 days out and take 9 to 10 days off. You run where they send you it is non forced dispatch and if you say no, you just go to the bottom of the list.

    Very good, they ask for 7 days notice so they can work you into position. I have never been home late. Most of the time your back by mid morning or the day before.
     
    Big Poppa Matt and Picture.Taker Thank this.
