    About Tri-State Expedited Service

    High Roof Van Set Rate Pay Plan

    • $1.00 per loaded mile fixed
    • Fuel surcharge set weekly

    I dunno, I'm Canadian and they don't need me. I started a Rates and Rants in the soapbox, so I don't hijack any more threads. Post why there...you don't have to name names...

    Biggest complaint has been they just are not getting the miles with that rate.
    Sounds nice, until your doing it. Most of the drivers I've talked to were already planning on jumping ship.

    And whats misleading when Carriers quote that higher rate per mile is the fact thats Only on their direct customers .... much lower rates when load comes off the load boards ...

    I will keep dreaming on down the I-10...:guitar:;) just did 2650 miles for $4435. I can live with those numbers. 13+ clients total on this run. The main reason for switching back over to expedite was to enjoy some nice Candian summer time temps and focus on shorter 300-600 miles runs in the freight lanes racking up more shipments and less lost productivity in the strategic planning of these massive loads.

    I did also hear recently a couple weeks back that Bolt is still at .95 to 1.05 confirmed by a driver.

    I know several Bolt drivers ... the current rate is between .70 to $ 1.05 .... it depends on customer ..loaded miles .. toll roads ... DH miles .... number of Vans in area ... your Ability to negotiate ..

    Bumping this thread again as I recently had a message from a new member asking me if I knew of any carriers for a 2005 Sprinter Van one year older then my current van. Still running uship exclusively at the moment but hopefully one day I can join back in the expedite party one day soon so I know again what the sunrise looks like in Ontario. ;)

    most carriers want less than 5 years old to start , my feeling are if it looks good, maintained well, and pass a DOT inspection that should be go to. when I started at Roberts express and than Fedexcc plus EGL , they want no more than 5 year old period, for van's and class 5 to 7. class 8 you could keep 10 model years old . now it depends on company how long you can keep a unit.
