    Where do I post Expedite loads? I'm a broker

    Cook County Cargo sparked my interest. Is this the government entity trying to move goods in the fulfillment of serving its people? Or someone that just is using an official looking seal ?

    Where do I post Expedite loads? I'm a broker

    Wait ! There’s what, maybe a dozen active expediters still here ? We may have more retirees than active expediters. Maybe AARP should advertise here.

    Where do I post Expedite loads? I'm a broker

    I don’t know the legalities. I wonder if Lawrence could let people post loads on the forum, for a fee, to spark interest.

    New cargo van o/o

    The answer to your question is YES. If you need to ask, you’re not ready for your own authority. Go sign on with 1 legit company and learn the business. You can thank me later. Tell us alittle about yourself, your experience, and your equipment. You may get pointed to a good carrier. Or not.

    New and obviously STUPID

    Is this before, or after, he beats the crap out of the guy that told him this was a good idea? And I definitely agree with Flying Van.

    Hello there..

    I’m an old guy. So I remember the old 220, NTC 250, 270, and our shiny 290. And a V903 and a 444. I imagine that’s what you see. Maybe some 6V53s. Probably an occasional thermodyne or maxidyne. Unfortunately I’m no mechanic.

    Hello there..

    We often get engines older than the driver. And sometimes they both leave puddles.

    Hello from Las Vegas

    Some people say it’s not real Trucking. It is. Not as hard as we had it back in the 60’s with 2 stick transmissions, no power steering, before reliable ac. As you navigate through NYC, or across a frozen interstate if only to find an almost safe place to ride out the storm, you’ll feel like a...

    Hello from Las Vegas

    Rags, some of the best straight teams couldn’t make it in TT. So, they’ll tell you they didn’t like it. Which is okay. These people are just avoiding that embarrassing first step. Seems like a smart move to me.

    Hello from Las Vegas

    I think you’re right on track. Unless you NEED steady income. And as hot as freight is right now for straights, even a rookie team will probably do pretty good if you’re with a decent carrier.

    An odd companion to have while trucking!

    Will he get motion sickness ? Other than that, I see no downside. Secure the aquarium securely. DO NOT put WE LIKE LIZARDS bumper stickers on truck. That won’t turn out well.

    I Wanna Drive

    You went off the road for a month? I guess that means you had a job ? Did you do it properly, like giving the owner notice ? Will he/she take you back ? Why is your insurance “high” ? I would think you’d need great references for someone to take a chance on you.
