It's mechanical

If you end up doing it and can follow detailed directions without having a tantrum, consider getting into reefers and moving produce. Rates are always changing, but these guys have a much more stable minimum. I work at a logistics brokerage and the per mile rates we pay the produce and frozen guys are way beyond what youd get for regular dry van rates.

Going from Southern California to Pittsburgh will usually net you at least $5k, but these past 2 weeks weve been paying close to $8k. You have to maintain your unit really well though because reefer breakdown is a huge risk AND the market can change for a particular commodity while its on the road and then the receiver will try to find any way they can to kick the load or get concessions from the shipper, and they always try to blame the truck.

Lol Landstar. They call with their bizarre script written by someone who maybe heard of English once from a movie set in 1893, and I just hang up on them at this point. Also Key Solutions Group- you have one power unit registered, having 50 dispatchers is just a lil suspicious, no?
