    As far as I can tell, yes. The drops/hooks/fuel may be piecemeal and the delay pay may only be $10/hour, but I think you’d be hard pressed to go find another job running linehaul and at the end of the year make as much as we do.

    .6568 in the upper right.

    Fedex and UPS have higher mileage rates but you’ll only drive 300 miles a night and work the dock there unless you’re the top of the board. (what I’ve been told)

    Ive had a few weeks over 3600 miles and I’m still new. Definitely couldn’t be doing better anywhere else.

    No that is covered by the per diem deduction on our taxes. We got a special dispensation from the IRS because of the added expense.

    Same in the southeast, but working for either has some drawbacks that aren’t worth the extra pay.
