    Great read. Claims settlements are also at all time highs.

      Yep... great read....
      one overlooked issue it seems
      Dedicated run drivers like fedex and UPS and USPS... the sooner you are done the better the pay equates
      So many I have observed doing say 65-70 in a 55 zone say in the 294 in Chicago... and no one it seems are watching the GPS tracking and disciplining these speedsters...

      Not too sure about UPS road drivers.
      Last I heard they were hourly.
      UPS Freight would be mileage.
