It's a Team's Life

Running Steady

We have been beating the trails pretty hard this past week and were very pleased to accept a pre assignment for Monday.  We now know we have the weekend to get caught up on laundry, clean the truck up and catch up on odds and ends we need to do.  We are also lucky as we can park near our pickup for Monday and we have an awesome area to ride our bikes and to walk.  There are usually no trucks there so we do not have to listen to the sounds of engines running constantly!  Before we get to our layover we will get laundry done, get the truck washed and stop by a grocery store to restock our supplies. 

Here is to a great weekend and to what we hope will be another very busy week out here on the road.

    Jill-=|=-Hi Bob and Linda- I didn't catch who you work for. My husband and I were driving expedite for an owner leased to Tri-State and were laid off this year. We recently moved to Florida for a new driving job for him (non-expediting) but I really miss the road. How is expediting doing REALLY and when would be a good time to get our own truck and give this another shot. We have about 2 years experience and owned our own truck about 5 years ago, but being away from it it's hard to gauge how business is really doing. Thanks. SAFE TRUCKING!!

    Linda-=|=-We are with FedEx Custom Critical. For the last 6 to 8 week we have been running really well. Any of the other expediters we talk to are experiencing the same thing. How long it will last who knows... Still the same as it was before have all of your ducks in a row and buy a truck you can afford. The rates are still low so you really need to know your bottom line and keep on top of your expenses.
