Is a fuel card a carrier's responsibility to provide to their drivers, o/o's, etc? I strongly feel it is not. Many carriers do provide one, and many do not. Some...

    Any tips for buying first used truck?

    I'd get the total engine hours, divide that into the odometer reading...that will give you an average speed...the higher the average speed, the less it idled.. Try and obtain maintenance records....find what dealer sold it new and give them the vin# ...go to whatever engine it has in it service...

    I have noticed and appreciated how dispatch will pre- book me on loads while on a load. That is nice. Yes, there are weeks that start out slow, with me just accepting it as it is kinda mindset, not getting upset, or calling dispatch whining....Than, like you, Mr. Roadtime, BOOM! Like winning...

    You are absolutely correct. Yes, they need the un-sugar coated brutal truth, not the fairly tale version of this business painted picture that some recruiters and fleet owners may give them.

    Good morning! If you were a leased owner operator to a company, I don't see how you can be told when you can and can't run. Technically, you are not an employee, but sub contracted to them. I don't think they will like it, however. Some companies do have an age limit on the leased...
