How are the Big Boys doing?


Seasoned Expediter
I own three straight trucks and I am thinking about adding a tractor. I need to know how the big boys solo and team are running. How many miles are you running each week and how many reduced rate runs are offered. If you have a tractor with 53 foot dry van or flatbed you can combine three or four back loads and make decent money. Something I have not been able to do in straight trucks. Plus they are priced cheaper then stright trucks that have the same milage. You can get a Columbia or a Century with midrange milage and a two year 200K full coverage engine and transmission for low 20's in the market.
