    Pay...van owner/driver...how does it work?

    Everything is included, linehaul + fsc + any other monies. So if it says .70/mi all in then all you are getting is .70/mi.

    Which carrier are you with if I may ask?

    Newbie

    I would not go with the 150 ford transit. In my opinion, long and tall along with at least a 350 frame works best. For one it can haul tall freight with a 3 skid capacity and a weight capacity of 3000 lbs. which most carriers would like to have. Now the rate of .87/mi may be realistic for...

    Hello!

    Well I hate to burst your bubble but I think if you stuck with the big boys I think you would be better off.

    Our Time is Now

    Should’ve went with an attorney to get it reduced or changed to another non moving charge, then the speeding ticket wouldn’t go on your record. That’s what attorneys are for. JMHO.

    Good or no good

    Have a question about what fleet owners pay their drivers. I know a fleet owner who is paying his driver (sprinter van) 42% of the gross plus the fsc and the driver pays for the fuel. Now I know it’s always been 40/60 with the fuel paid and the fsc going to the 60% but he says the 40/60 split...

    New MC, need loads

    Bad time to start. Rates are in the toilet at this time and probably into the foreseeable future. Rates to get out of Texas at this time are in the .60 range and lower. Hope this helps.

    OTR OWNER OPERATOR NEEDED!

    Sounds like that would be tractor freight. Btw this is not a site to advertise loads. This is where drivers come to chat.

    2 skids vs 3 skids, how often in van

    I hope you are getting at least $1.25/mi for those 3-4000 lbs loads. Too much wear and tear on that vehicle for anything less. JMHO.
