    Hi guys!
    I'm Christina and I work for a regional company, hiring CDL A OTR, local/relay and static drivers just about everywhere East of the Mississippi! There are a few things that set us apart from the others. Family owned means you're not just a truck number. We know our drivers by a first name basis and we try to accommodate them in any way we can. We encourage you to bring your pet or passenger. We ensure you get all the miles you want with respect for desired home time, which we handle on a case by case basis. Basically, we want our drivers happy along with a healthy competitive pay and benefits plan.

    If this sounds like something you'd be interested in hearing more about, give me a call at 812-218-5671. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Because there is no cap on the pay the longer you're with us and because our best drivers are averaging 3500-3700 miles. I can't give you an exact number until I know what your experience is. For example, for Hazmat it's an extra .5 per mile. Teams get paid for total miles rather than just the miles one person drives. 3+ years at a company is valued higher than job hopping. Those are a few examples.

    We are on electronic logs. These are our drivers who really just want nothing but miles and money. But the bulk of our AVERAGE drivers is between 2500 and 3500.

    That's a term Summitt coined. It's basically consistent lanes that get you home at consistent times.

    I honestly don't know how. The few who get that number of miles are the ones who stay out 14 instead of the regular 7-10 days. I can call our operations person and find out exactly how that's possible if you'd like.

    Sure thing ! Weather you stay out several weeks or not I happen to know by experience 3,700 miles a wk wouldn't fly with the DOT if you went through a level 1 to 3 inspection

    Ok, operations said that the two who average that don't have governors on their trucks.

    I was leary from the first post. Not one single mention of the company name. Plus if you can't answer basic questions without knowing a driver's experience first, please. You can't answer because, you don't know. plain and simple. Good luck finding employees.

    Yes that's right The DOT will never figure out you were exceeding the speed limit.

    Computers don't snitch on drivers

    Where I work has Elogs and 65 mph trucks running 3500 miles a week on steady runs out West. 70, 75, and 80 mph State Speed Limits. It’d be no life, but I can see guys running 72-75 mph doing 3700 miles legally. I avg 3300 and 2 unloadings and a backhaul on the clock the last 7 yrs legally with 5 hrs left weekly w/o speeding.

    20- i guess youre not all that familiar with ELD?

    I've used the XRS for three yrs, and Peoplenet for 6 yrs before that. Had DOT check my logs on both with zero infractions. Our logs run off the truck's engine data and GPS. My manager gets an email if we go over the posted limit and a text message if we're more than 8 over for a minute. We can print out the truck data and courts will accept that. Even our 65mph governed trucks run approx 3500 miles a week in 70, 75, and 80 mph states without infractions. My CSA score is perfect, and my company' is almost so too.

    The Indiana Motor Truck Association doesn't just give these to dummies....
