    Coronavirus disrupts freight, price of oil; U.S. impacts could be ‘substantial’

    I’ll put it like this. Joe Blow wants to save a few bucks on a shipment of cheap products, yea, I get it. But you put a $10k+ piece of equipment on a vehicle, knowing that the driver doesn’t speak English, suspecting they’re not legal, you have to be nuts. Sent from my iPhone using EO Forums

    You think the Fed helped? All the people that had been conservatively in bonds got the shaft. Sent from my iPhone using EO Forums

    Perfect Expedite Paperwork Holder/Folder

    For the Newbies For $20 at Walmart, you can purchase one of these. In regular shipping, I’ve seen some truck drivers pick up 12-14 BOLs at one time, so it’s better for them to have the wide metal encased BOL holder. But for a typical Van Expedite, this item is perfect. *Scratch pad for the...

    Tow/Haul Button

    Maybe a little unrelated, since the thread is more focused on towing, but I drive a 2500 Promaster, and because of the lower HP (280), I find the Tow/Haul button invaluable, especially in the hills and mountains. No, it obviously doesn’t raise the Horsepower. But it does make a more solid...

    Green New expediter

    I personally believe that the best part about the job is driving all night to make sure that the load is there on time, during the dog days of summer, so after you drop the load it’s 110 degrees parked in the shade, too hot to sleep, and you have that tired stare that grins and looks back at you...

    fusion transportation

    They will provide a fuel card so you don’t have to pay out of pocket. I buy my own fuel, I prefer 1 fill up Pilot/Flying J then 2 fill ups at a Top Tier fueling station. It runs me around $400-$500 a week. Sent from my iPhone using EO Forums

    fusion transportation

    The second part of that question is the hard part. I knew nothing of the business, a friend walked me into it and into a van. I was fortunate in that regard. Your location is going to mean everything. I would call the nearest Expedite companies and as if they are looking for any drivers. As...

    fusion transportation

    In 2017 I drove for Fusion for a owner. It was my first otr experience. They were patient with me, and made it easy for me to learn the ropes. Last year I went owner/operator with Fusion. Again, first experience in becoming a o/o, and they walked me through it, and I happily have been driving...

    Partner problems

    It’s tough to be stuck in a truck with someone you’re having issues with. If not wait, let the owner know where you’re at mentally. If the owner doesn’t care, find a better place to work. If the owner cares, they will work with you on the situation. Sent from my iPhone using EO Forums

    Advice on footwear for ladies?

    I carry steel toe and I have crocks for quick slip off and on and in and out gas stations. I also have athletic, casual, and dress shoes, but they only get worn when I play dress up. Steel Toe and Crocks are what I wear while working. Sent from my iPhone using EO Forums
