    Land Span and Sunco are merging into Watkins. They will still run under two different division Sunco is going to be Watkins Refrigerated and Land Span is Watkins Truckload. Sunco does have a lease purchase program.

    I have been there two years, no complaints. You will have to have approximately $2500.00 for escrow and license fee when you get there. They do not pay your way to orientation, and they do not pay your motel. Almost like you were really going in to business for your self. They have freight, and will keep you going
