    It is a fair deal. But I don't think that you will have 1500-2000 miles average for Panther to soon. And the worker comp is just 16-17$ per week.And allays the owner has to pay the qualcomm....so this is not a plus.....

    I would not figure on anything over 1200 miles per week when calculating a go / no go decision. Also, I agree it isn't the driver's responsibility to pay the qc fee. Good luck with your decision.

    I dont pay QC fee's. Just escrow and workers comp .

    Sense the first of the year I have gotten close to 1500+ every week but 2. Around 3 or 4 weeks have been over 2000 miles.

    Im also on a 60/40 with 100% fuel surcharge paid to me.


    Edit- I havent been home in almost 2 months thats why I probably been doing pretty good.
