    So a local truck picks up freight and transfers it to another mode of long haul transportation where it then has to be unloaded again and put on a local truck for delivery.

    We have that already....it's called a railroad

      Lucky you, New England gets snow - next day it melts away, Charlotte gets flood I think.

      Honestly, being home every night is starting to look very appealing. 10 local deliveries at $75 per is $750...

      $75 is lowest rate for my area, 4 hour radius. But yes a competent dispatch is needed while you hustle, and some luck

      Still sitting in Columbia, SC. Not quite thinking this is how I want to spend the week. Feeling a bit grouchy towards all the new people starting into expedite. Wish they understood pricing/rates. Racing to the bottom!!
