    I've been trying to find out what the general payrate for Linehaul is at R&L but havent seen much online.

    I'm looking at either ABQ NM or HST TX. Is it a flat rate for mileage or does it vary by location/region?

    Thabks for the help.

    They pay a flat trip pay. It works out to .62-.63 a mile. You get a hour ($25) for a stop at a terminal en route. No pay for waiting/delay.

    Depending on what region you work out of. I was with RL for 5 years, the NJ top rate is 28.50, my switch driver from OH I believe was 26.50 as well as the guys from Chinagrove, NC.

    Where you at making that kinda pay? We can barely make .52-.54 a mile avg. And that's at top pay. Not to include all the free time we give them.

    They pay a flat trip pay per run. Nothing extra for waiting or drop & hooks.

    But there is extra pay if you have to stop at another terminal on your route to switch trailers out. I believe its 20 bucks. We have a guy that does it often on the way to his meet driver. He swaps with a Richmond driver but has to stop at PHI or Newark sometimes.

    R&L has lifetime bids, only way to get a bid is if a driver quits or a bid is added.
