    Tribe runs teams and solo. I think there's a terminal in Gainesville,GA(think there's 2 GA terminals.
    Benny Whitehead Trucking runs teams and hauls lots of produce off the West Coast.
    Yes, teams should keep you moving.
    .Here's some more:
    Cedar Creek Trucking
    Kennesaw Transportation
    East-West Express
    Abilene Motor Express(real good reputation)
    Decker Truck Line - reefer division

    If you contact any of these companies, ask if they do West Coast turns. I'm sure they all do though.
     
    RailRoad Guy Thanks this.

    South East Carriers in Lawrenceburg, TN does lots of west coast and no Northeast. Don't know if they run teams, but has a good reputation from solo drivers.

    Actually, YES... they do. It is just a drop lot shared with other carriers, just north of 285 on the southeast perimeter. I think that might be considered Ellenwood.
     
    Metacoyote and G13Tomcat Thank this.

    Yes, Conley, ga there is a drop lot. However it's 10$ a night to park. Yes... I know... Retarded. Neighborhood is horrible, but the drop lot is secured via guards and electronic fence.

    Hope this help!
     
    Metacoyote Thanks this.

    Yes they did pay decently, the only exception was detention pay. I got screwed on about half of my detention claims.
    Beyond that they did pay what they said.
    Home time was pretty decent, I usually stayed out about three weeks and took about 4 solid days off.
    Their accident/incident policy is outrageous.
    If you are one of their favorites (which means your home is Granger) they will cut a lot of slack.
    I've been a driver since 99, and have known drivers since the late 1970's.
    ALL DRIVERS HAVE INCIDENTS they might not be major accidents, but every driver has had a few minor incidents.
    They may not even been aware that something minor has occurred, but all drivers have had incidents.
    If they deny then they are liars.
    If you are from the granger terminal, and kiss their butt they will turn a blind eye to incidents.
    Practically anyone from another terminal will get thrown under the buss if you irritate the Grainger office.
