    Was wondering what would pay more as the companies wont give me a salary number.

    Local fuel transport or local ltl linehaul?
    What has a steady amount of work as I like to work 6 days a week and 7 if I can.
    Was looking into kag for fueling and saia or old dominion for ltl but bot sure which will be better or pay better in the long run.

    Well.. legally you can only work 60/7 days, or 70/8 days.

    So.. I'd just go with the one that paid the best hourly.. had the benefits.. and didn't work much, if any, weekends... OR left you pumping fuel in a parking lot in the hood at 2am with no protection.

    But, that's just me.

    I used to like life on a razors edge.

    I've mellowed a bit.

    The ltl job does seem better but it worries me about the over hiring they do

    ABF?

    They’re infamous for that.
