    Is it me or has TL had some of their trucks turned up? I've been passed by several TL running off and leaving my sleeper shuttle truck in the dust.

    Not my truck. Mine seems slower than others. It really irritates me when going up hill with a decent load and it slows down to 55

    I saw one of your trucks today a shiner red Volvo Sleeper can parked on the side of the road on I-77 North in Cleveland,Ohio.
    It was very sad maybe he was lost I don't know. He didn't have triangles out so that's good. I was like oh there's an Averrit truck on the side of the road that's sad.

    Not us. All the while FEDEX, UPS Freight, Conway, Estes, Pitt Ohio, even Southeastern blow our doors off and make on average 5 to 8 cents per mile more.

    Remember, you are driving for "The Little Company that Could". Those you mentioned are real companies.

    Shoot. 68 mph would do.

    Remember, you are working for a place that has bought into the global warming bullsh*t. This is why they were turned down before.

    I got a feeling, when all the night time shuttle trucks are put on E-logs, some of the runs won't be able to make them at 65mph. So my thinking is, either put on more trucks and drivers, to cover more relays, or turn trucks up to the seed limit. Just my thoughts.

    I was told all 10.5 and over hour runs will reconstructed, all others will remain the same.

    All of the runs reconstructed by the einsteins in Kookvegas, headed by Pam R.
    My advice, RUN, don't walk away from that dying outfit.

    Well just last night on 30 I got passed by a fellow averitt driver like I was standing still. I was way ahead of him and he pulled right next to me like nothing. He then pulled away but seemed like he let off and creeper away but once he got out it,it flew. He had a roll up door trailer so not sure if that's shuttle. It was a sleeper cab and I was going 65 so he must of been at least 70. Seems a little fishy to me. Oh and I only have 30,000 in weight

    I do know that we some dedicated trucks set at 68 or 70, like On Tour Logistics.
