I know Swift and Schneider.

Swift, Schneider, Werner, Crete (sometimes), Prime (idk if they do dedicated though), and a few others I can remember. Or Walmart has their own truck fleet, too.

Walmart Private Fleet isn't an option for an entry level driver; they require a minimum of 30 months, accident free OTR experience.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Okay. I knew that they always say things like "our elite experienced fleet" and other stuff like that. Wasn't sure though.

One of the best ways to enable being hired by Walmart's Private Fleet, is to drive on one of their Transportation Partner's Walmart Dedicated Account delivering to Walmarts, Sam's Club and picking-up vendor backhauls for the return trip to the DC. As Linden accurately mentioned, the big players are Swift, Schneider, Werner, Prime, and US Express. Although there are others, those are the top 5.

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Werner I think does both and I THINK CRST does Target but I am not sure.

Yes, Target uses (almost) all CRST to pull their freight from what I've seen.
