    Fedex cc vs. Panther

    I'm with panther right now I was just curious if one can keep me moving better than I am now. We are running a straight truck with a liftgate and tag axle with a team and it's gotten to where we average about 2 loads a week.

    Help freightliner m2

    Hi I have a 2015 freightliner m2 with a Detroit diesel engine. It has the idle cutoff program where it shuts down after 20 minutes. Usually when it gets to hot out or cold though I've been able to chalk my wheels and turn off the brake and it will keep idling to keep the cabin comfortable. Well...

    Partner problems

    I'm gonna wait till he goes on vacation in a week and then tell the owner that I never want to work with him again. I hope the owner doesnt get mad at me because like I said earlier he thinks this guy is God's gift to expediting and he is probably gonna be resistant to anything I say.

    Partner problems

    Update: so after being cussed out and griped at and insulted daily I finally had enough and confronted him about it. His response was that I was being a pu$$y millenial, a little prick, an a$$ hole, and that I needed to just shut my mouth and just agree with everything he says. Any suggestions...

    Partner problems

    Their only relationship is over the phone it's easy to form a positive opinion of someone if you've never had to spend any time with them. That's being said I'm the new guy so if I try and tell the owner that he may be a little mistaken then it will probably backfire on me. So I will just bite...

    Partner problems

    Ok so I'm new to expediting but I am having problems with my partner and it's only like 4 days in. What do you guys suggest? I should only have to be with him for 3 weeks max because he is "training" me. After that I can go solo until my brother finishes with getting everything he needs for his...
