    The State of Freight Today (Coronavirus Effects)?

    Things was just starting to pick up for us until the shutdowns came. We lost two teams from it. New drivers for us can't even go to class at our carrier until April 13th. I pray that no expedite driver gets sick from this nasty stuff.

    Ta/Petro Citizens Award

    A few days ago I got a phone call from TA/Petro telling me that I had been nominated twice for the TA/Petro Citizens Award. I was in tears as this is a honor for me and a total shock. I do a lot of charity work that I try to keep it private, but TA/Petro knew everything. It's an honor to me...

    Solar Eclipse - What are you doing?

    I was at the TA in Nashville and it was pretty cool. The place went dark and all the lights came on everywhere. Then we got a load picking up in Evansville, Indiana 154 miles away. I didn't even make it to my pickup and had to take my half hour break. Traffic was worst than NY city for 144...

    How's It Going @ FedEx Custom Critical?

    My uncle Jim had four tractors with drop decks on with Landstar Ranger and did very well. When he retired he sold off his truck repair business and racing team, but kept the trucks a few more years.

    I hope our load crosses the border today so we can leave on time to our deliver on Monday morning. That way we can go to the Nickleback concert. I have had tickets for two months now.

    Where is everyone at???

    I stayed off of here for a few years, but always read the posts when I could. There is a lot of good information that can be learned from each other without fighting. I was one that would get mad at what people thought or said. I could care less anymore, people are going to say things you don't...

    Remembering fellow expedite people.

    Tonight I was talking to a fellow fleet owner about a way to remember and honor the people that contributed to Expediting over the years. Geo has said many times, "The Expediters Hall of Fame". Well, thats a great idea, but getting people to agree on things is hard. I would like new people in...

    RATE THE FREIGHT!

    Lawrence that is a very good question. Freight for me and my fleet it has been very good at Bolt Express this year. As a team we are on pace to gross 255k this year. I have never grossed that much in a year with one truck ever. So far it's been about 4.99.

    How's It Going @ FedEx Custom Critical?

    I would say that Hawks is right on the money. Landstar is a better choice at controlling what you do. The agent network at Landstar is very big, remember agents don't get paid unless they are putting loads on drivers trucks.

    Bolt Express is a Great company

    I just wanted to give kurdos to Bolt Express. I just finished up my first 30 days up with Bolt Express and was shocked on the income we made for a non hazmat straight truck team. We did 15 loads for $22,688.79 for a $1.53 a mile average for all loaded and empty miles. Our previous carrier we was...
