We begin a new year with a new Crap Company of the Week! Suggested by many of you, this company has great trucks but not great pay. Does this matter to drivers? I will tell you this, I get many emails asking about companies and drivers do seem to want a specific truck. They want horsepower or a Pete or whatever. Folks, that does not pay the bills. Yes you should have a nice truck on the road that is relatively new with no issues. Everything should work on it but would you be willing to take a pay cut to get a Pete? Apparently, some would. Would you be willing to be nearly the lowest paid driver on the road? Maybe you would but I wouldn't. I'll take a basic Freightliner with A/C and a larger paycheck. Either way, you can watch it HERE.
Suggestions are always welcome and let me know why your suggestions should be the Crap Company of the Week!
See you on the road!

I would find it very helpful if you could do a piece on personal conveyance (pc). We have great arguements that run almost permanently where I work. Dispatch seems to think we can run ourselves out of hours then drive home on it. Some of our drivers even use it to go pick up loads.

I have done a number of videos about personal conveyance like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HVCOicRONo and others. I can always answer a specific question at Mark@TruckingAnswersNation.com but what you are saying is not allowed.

Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
