    Let me start by saying I have no personal experience w/ em. My information is 2nd hand, from talking to some of their drivers. I don't know exactly how many I've talked to. I'm guessin less than 10.. I'd say it was pretty evenly split amongh if the drivers liked em, thought they were ok, or didn't care for em.

    They pay on time, so you'll have no problems w/ that. Whether ya get miles or not depends on the luck of the draw. Of course, that's true with a lot of companies. I'd say as a company they're at least worth a try. I don't think they have a lot of US to US freight. I think most of it is either US to Canada or Canada to US. I'm sure they have a lot of Canada to Canada freight, but if you're a US citizen you're not allowed to take it.

    If you're willing to go to Canada, they could be a good fit for ya.

    Hope this helps some & good luck,
    Danny

    TST is a Canada based expedite company.
    Canadian drivers are based in Windsor and US drivers in Detroit.
    They do mostly trans border work for the automotive companies. That doesn't sound as bad as it might as the Japanese transplants are opening plants; Ford is retooling Oakville for Flexible manufacturing, Chrysler Brampton has a good selling car and GM is busy although Oshawa 2 is scheduled to close.
    You will be dealing with Customs and, I'm sure, be requuired to be CDRP registered.

    www.tst911.com
    is their website.
