    I have my own authority and i am looking to get the Panther load board, does anyone know how much cargo van loads are going for per mile?

      i know that if you have your own authority you can sign up to their load board and bid on loads to haul, i have recently got my authority and it needs to age a little, have you ever done business with them?

      If its anything what they pay their drivers then probably not worth it. .70/mi. + fsc (probably somewhere around .08/mi). Not to good in my book. I see alot of Panther cargo vans sitting.

      I was told that I can get onto the Panther load board and get some drivers under my company and dispatch them loads and they usually pay pretty good bidding on their load board, I havent seen it yet for myself but this is just what people are saying that are in this business

    hey man, i just started driving for an owner as well. Did you get a chance to ask about your tax questions? I dont see how we can take deductions for fuel and meal per diem and not own or lease the vehicle. I know guys do it. Im just trying to figure out how it works. Any info you find out would greatly be appreciated
    1. Spyralspyder
      I got a pretty good deal. I am getting 100% of my fuel surcharge back so I am not worried about the fuel deduction anymore. I am just deducting normal equipment and food expenses. Sorry I couldn't help you out.

    HI, I forgot to mention, Lowes and Amazon work require lift gates ....

    XPO has the national contract I believe (it's'how we got it).
    XPO also does Amazon ...Good for night runs if combined with Lowe's you can run a truck almost 24/7
    Only thing about Lowes's is cover your butt with pics and signed statements of a job completed with no damages before you leave the job site....Customers / Lowe's will claim damages and cost you mega $$ if not.

    I seen one of your posts and read that you do deliveries for lowes? Can I ask howd you land that contract? We just picked up a 26 ft box and are desperate for work. Thanks in advance.

    I've been watching some of your videos on Youtube. In one, you mentioned you had a video about your first week in the business and how stressful it was, but I can't find it. Can you tell me how to locate it? Thanks for all you guys do.
