    Transport America is seeking driving teams to fulfill its FedEx account. FedEx teams will run the entire 48 states with a majority being Midwest, Southeast, and Northeast. This lane consists of no freight in New York City. Drivers will be paid 6,000 miles to the truck for the week but will only be running an average of 4,800 miles each week. There will be short loads (<500 miles) during the week to re-position equipment. Most loads average 1,000 miles one way in distance. Routes run Monday – Friday providing drivers with home time every weekend. Both drivers must be hazmat certified.

    I guess they got impatient waiting for Musk's truckbots.

    Can we apply?

    Really makes you want to jump up and volunteer to uproot your family to follow the freight.

    Jeff:

    The article says a few interesting things...

    Runs will be often be 1000 miles. (2 legs of a meet and turn).

    Sometimes shorter than 500 miles. (That could be any shuttle run we have).

    What it didn't say anywhere was FedEx FREIGHT. (We can assume, but Ground might be utilizing this as well).

    It doesn't mention doubles endorsements. (So, this isn't the Pilot program using our trailers - oh wait, maybe they'll just use the rail containers?)

    Thoughts?

    Wish we had more specifics on the rate. It might be fun to run some numbers.

    "Drivers will be paid 6,000 miles to the truck for the week but will only be running an average of 4,800 miles each week."


    Agree, it's interesting that it doesn't mention Freight, specifically. Sounds like a Freight thing, but may operate under Corp and could be used to cover any & all opp-cos. Either way, it could (likely) also have something to do with current & serious capacity crunch and/or the potential for USP to strike Aug. 1st. Pure speculation, I know...

    Also, when I put in by zip code, that offer is not available.

    I'm assuming these are only running out of a specific region. Anyone getting this position in your neighborhood by searching on Jeff's link?

    Charlotte is confirmed by hoot's glass door link.

    Question is that .28 cpm for the truck or the team? Notice it says UP TO .28cpm that’s not saying you will make that.

    No no, .56 to the truck x 6000. $1680 gross pay, each.

    You guys must be crazy to turn this down, this kinda money would almost pay your expenses plus part of
    your caddy fee.
    Seems like we were making about $0.40 back in 89, only drawback, don't think our trucks were "dog friendly"
