    Hi Stimpy, my choice of wording could have been a bit better. The pay is 73% of the total move plus any incurred accessorials (detention, stop offs, etc). Sorry about that.

    Why 73% of the fuel surcharge?

    Hopefully this helps...........for example, if the line haul is $100 and the customer is currently paying 18% FSC (which was the current rate last week for that particular customer), the total rate is $100 plus $18. The driver would then be paid 73% of the total turn which in this case is $86.14. This is just an example with nice round numbers.

    Pay is 73% of the Line Haul and FSC plus accessorials if there are any. Yes, that does mean FSC is also 73%. You could break down the numbers such that FSC is 100% and Line Haul is a bit lower than 73% but since the FSC varies week to week the Line Haul percentage would also move with it. That's why I stick with saying 73% line haul + 73% FSC.

    If anybody has questions or concerns about these numbers and is looking at applying we would be more than happy to talk to you. Give us a call and we can discuss. We in no way hide what you get since everything is upfront. We take care of our drivers and with the abundance of freight and relationships we have with our customers, we afford each driver to run efficiently whether you're local or regional.
