    What do cargo vans haul? Hazmat required?

    Correct. Though it may not require placards, you must still be aware of labeling, packaging, securement, etc.

    Semi driver thinking of going to expiditing. Advice appreciated

    Making the move from semi, "more miles" to expediting, "more money" is a rough changeover. You will find yourself sitting for days .. and that gets tedious .... I know, I did it.

    Fdcc-cargo van drivers

    Swamp .... the replies have mostly been directed at WvCouier .... who feels you did not receive promt service. All of us, like he, do actually have lives apart from EO. Though mine is very boring! If it were not for Waffle House I'd go crazy!

    Earning Your Wings

    fuel surcharge

    Depends ........ some carriers don't charge it, some do. Some carriers don't share it, some do. It is figured from a base rate, (I think it is $2.90 cents, I may be wrong), then any point over that price is passed along to the shipper. And it is regionalized for varying prices. Fuel might be...
