    I've been with Averitt 2 years and was wondering if I should stick with this company. Is their opportunity to make $100,000 being a shuttle/line haul driver like ups, FedEx, old dominion, and other companies?

    I would say from experience, 29 years at Averitt, the average Shuttle driver will make 55k his first year and max out at 80k after many, many years. But this all depends on location, some centers are in an area to have several high mile runs, 550 a night plus. And some centers have only a few above 500 miles. If you need to be in the 100k club you would need to join a nation wide carrier like Fedex Ups Freight or XPO.

    Thank you for telling me salaries. Can ups city drivers become feeder drivers? I heard they cannot. What do you guys think of old dominion for a full length career?

    Ups package drivers can be promoted to Feeder. OD is the most profitable, highest paying non union company .
