Decker, who was the Crap Company of the Week a few weeks ago, has started writing in the comments of their crap video. They were suggesting to drivers that I was wrong and that they paid HHG Practical miles. There is no such thing. I will be releasing a video on how miles are paid. Companies always want you to think they are paying better than they are. HHG miles (sometimes called short miles) pay zip code to zip code. It pays on routes you can't actually take in a truck and it went out of style many years ago. Some companies still hold on to the old ways. You lose 8-10% of the miles this way. For example, a 550 mile load on practical miles pays around 535-540 miles while on HHG miles it pays 500-505 miles. For the same load! Companies that pay HHG miles will never get on the Doing it Better list from me. I still think all drivers should be paid hourly but drivers should not accept a position with a company that pays anything less than practical miles. Just say NO to HHG miles!
See you on the road!
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.
