    If you dont mind picking up your own insurance. I know several of the smaller carriers are hiring. Many of them allow you to run for more than one company. So it will increase your opportunity for freight.

    Seriously, no one "hires" vans.

    Re: Who's hiring for cargo vans?

    Not much help here. 157 VIEWS AND 3-4 ANSWERS..One says he can tell me who is hiring but doesnt,one gives me a link which is good. And Greg gives a sarcastic answer that wasnt really needed. Nice! Tristate says no vans needed.Landstar really wants 13 feet of cargo room,meaning a Sprinter,and requires Hazmat Endorsement and Class A or B CDL.Maybe I should have added no sarcastic remarks from Little truck drivers ( straight trucks ).

    Gregs point is that the carriers don't "hire" the drivers.
    Drivers are independent operators contract to the carrier, there for, not employees.

    Re: Who's hiring for cargo vans?

    I didn't volunteer company names because I happen to work for one of them and didn't want to self-promote all over this forum. I tried to send you a PM but it seems either i am not allowed to send them or you are not allowed to receive them.

    I work for Whirlwind Express LLC, out of Crossville, TN. If you call 866-259-1919 we will be able to give you any information you need. Also, I know many of our drivers work with T&K as well. I don't have any of their contact info but I imagine it would be easy to search them out.

    Why not go to 5 Star Carriers on the opening page and either call as many that have an 800 # or fill out an application using the "multi" application?

    I thought Load 1 put a hiring freeze on vans last year, but somehow The Enemy and Jen got hired! There is always an exception to the rule! Never say never.
