    I am new here and looking to get into expediting. I have been researching the past few months and figure I should introduce myself.

    I currently live in the Pacific Northwest, but I love to travel. I am looking into purchasing a van, but I am also considering working for a fleet owner too, but I have not much luck finding one up here. Only experience I have in the transportation field is aviation experience whether fueling, towing, pushing, and sometimes operating aircraft's.

    The area you live in is NOT a good expediting area. If you can make it work you will be on the road for months before making it back home, and then be very difficult to get out. Also, the van market is over saturated, so I would steer you away from vans. Not enough loads and low rates.
