    Some input if you

    I think you would make more $ driving straight truck rather than cargo van. Try Hours does pretty good keeping solo drivers busy. Talk to their recruiting department and they could probably place you with an owner. :D

    Pilot in Lodi

    Words cannot even describe how I feel right now about the night manager working tonight 05/07/10 at Pilot in Lodi, Ohio. My daughter was in the middle of damaging winds and a tornado warning shown to be coming right through Lodi on I-76 headed towards Seville where we live. My daughter and...

    Well off to court...

    The Magicoen, I wish you all the luck in the world. You seem like a very dedicated driver to be on the road for that amount of time. Your owner seems very unreasonable and just in it to make a buck for himself. Good luck I'll be watching for the outcome. Trish Fleet Owner

    Just Give us OUR RATE

    I agree, no dispatcher should ever treat any driver with anything else but respect. I was a dispatcher for 4 years and I do know that some did not have the patience or personality for it. It was almost like a power-trip for them. It is a very stressful job being a dispatcher, and my head hurt...

    Need some straight answers!!!

    Hi GavinsDad, I am a fleet owner and I have also worked on the inside as a dispatcher for 4 years. My suggestion to you would be since you haven't done expediting to look into driving for someone first for at least 6 months to get your experience in the expediting business. You will either...
