    Maverick doesn't have miles right now either. Look at McElroy as well. Don't know about windows, I think they are Internationals.

    Then there's CT out of Savannah GA as well to check out. Pay scale wasn't great there if I remember correctly, but within reason. They drive Macks.

    With the slowdown of construction and the economy in general, flatbed is slow all over. Everyone is feeling it this year. Not a great time to jump into this segment if you're looking to run a lot.
