Welcome drvrdoug,welcome to both Truckingboards and OD!
Hey OD drivers,I am a former Watkins/Fedex Freight driver. I am interested in joining the OD family,and I currently live in Orlando. I know I will probrably have to work extraboard/wildboard in the beginning. Where would be the best place to do this? Orlando (do they even run wild out of this terminal,Watkins did not ),Atlanta or maybe another southern terminal. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to our forum JRT,Most of our terminals have wild drivers based at them chances are if ORL doesn't have a spot for you maybe Tampa will or one of the many FL barns will.I used to run into a Tampa based driver in Salt Lake or Tucson pretty often so I know they used to have wild drivers there,Good luck!let us know how things go.
Thanks, DayliteDean - anyone know what the starting pay is for single board and also team board. I also was wondering if OD pays delay for motel time. Watkins use to pay after 12hrs in motel.
Mid to upper 40's for singles,tops at.54cpm,teams were @.56 a couple of years ago but we've had several pay raises since,they used to also pay a few cents a mile more for drivers that came from other freight companies but I dont know if thats still being done,OD does pay for delay time although some dispatchers freak out when you ask for it(its charged to their terminal!)rarely does it take that long to get out of a breakbulk,and most of the time You'll get sent out with empties before 12 hours are up.
freighthauler, former fedex freight driver, checking in out of our BAL term!! Glad to be a part of the OD family for 3 years now!!
Welcome Freighthauler hope you enjoy your time at TB,and OD
