They discontinued their southeast lanes after the us xpress issue so with me living in Jacksonville, it was a fiasco getting home and back out to their lanes. I give them many thanks for trying to keep alot of us southeast guys but it's just not what the company big wigs want. If you live in their lanes, it's a good gig and things are getting better. They pay very well, I was at .45 a mile before I left, .52 a mile if you get all the monthly and quarterly bonuses which is fairly easy. No per diem offered so it's not masked behind all that mess. It's straight pay. one year experience will get you .40 a mile a there which is beyond most of these companies.
They still have their issues that could put them right back in the hole if they are not more careful.
Right before I left they had #### near every truck in the fleet replaced with brand new ones and there was talk of new trailers next. Trailers were the main issue there. if you weren't chasing empties, you were sitting in the shop waiting for a repair because the drivers are wreckless and lazy and there is no fear of discipline for it.
I checked their safety scores the other day. Vehicle maintenance is still awful which you can chock mostly up to the awful trailer pool.
They also registered a little over 500 trucks this time. Their peak was nearly 1500 after the link merger. So this us xpress take over of their southeast markets has dropped their fleet down to 3/4 of what it was
