    Hoovestol bought our company in 2013. Some changes I didn't like, some I did.
    My understanding is that all the Pat Salmon operations people will remain. So the think it will mostly be business as usual.
    One thing I can think of is turning as many routes into relays as possible. For example Indianapolis to Charlotte. Driver from Charlotte goes half way, so does Indy. Swap, go back, deliver, go home. Wayne Hoovestol likes to get as many drivers home daily as possible.

    I like the being home daily part but I am running a team run. I am out 3 days and home 4 days which gives me more time to hang out with my grandkids.

    There’s a ton of money to be made owning a contract. There anywhere from 500,000 on up to over millions. Depending on how far you drive of course. I’ve only been with this company now 6 months. I got out of the O/O gig. I have already made them almost 225,000 dollars in six months! That’s just me in one of there trucks. People keep it hush and there hard to get. Keep in mind you will have to have your own trailers, Atleast two trucks. The mail doesn’t stop so you’re going to be working six days a week. If one of your trucks break down you need a backup, or you need to rent one ASAP! You will need to register for a dun # Its a lot of work, but there is a ton of money in it!!! A Eagle Driver I know, his contract pays him 5.10 a mile.
