    1300 start is most likely swaps. Take an empty and " swap " for a full one. Maybe a short linehaul after dark.
    I work out of West Chester. Been to Allentown term many times. What do you need to know?

    like he said swaps, also could be a lot of late pick ups with all the warehouse out there. Most of our terminals have afternoon drivers for that reason. Did you get called in for a interview ??

    Some more research may be needed to make sure you know what you are getting into. Most drivers here average 50-60 hrs a week in 5 days. that being said there are no perfect start times allowing you regular 9-5 family home time. this can be said for most if not all truck driving jobs. This is a job full of compromise and trade offs. A Duie Pyle is a great company and i love working here. Some shifts may work better with your individual family situation, and the start time given may be all that is available. Good luck i hope it works out for you.
