Hazmat loads in the Northeast

Hey guys, I’m back with one more question. I’ve been offered an opportunity to haul Hazmat loads (it’s in a dry van trailer) up in the Northeast. Primarily in the New England states. Should I take it or should I run like hell from it?

I’ve never ran up in the New England states let alone Hazmat loads and the winter is right around the corner too. I don’t want to set myself up for failure but then again I don’t want to scare myself out of a good opportunity either.

Chemical Liquid Tanker job.

Hey guys, I have a question for you. I’ve been driving now for about 2 1/2 years and I’ve been hauling dry van freight (a little bit of Reefer loads too) the whole time. I have all of my endorsements and now I’m considering switching over and working for a Chemical Liquid Tanker company. They pay by percentage of the load. Here’s my question.

How much does these types of loads pay?

Running on recaps

Hey guys,

Thank you so much for the help. It all makes sense to me now. I'm on the road right now and tried whatever you guys suggested and it makes sense and I get it now. For now on whenever I feel I'm going to be somewhere for more than 5-10 mins I will just go off duty.

Just for clarification, the 70 hours in an 8 day period, that’s only for ON DUTY activities right? So, if I go off duty when I’m at a shipper or receiver, or if I go off duty to take a shower at a truck stop or get something to eat, that stops the clock right? Or is all of that still going against my 70 hour clock? Just like when you’re on your sleeper birth it freezes your clock right?

Sorry y’all, I’m just trying to make sense of this.

Running on recaps

Wow, 8 hours and 45 mins per day for 8 days. Now, within those 8 hours and 45 mins doesn’t that include your showers and bathroom breaks? Just because you go off duty doesn’t mean it stops your 14 hour clock. You get what I’m saying?

I’m asking this because I have an opportunity coming up that seems very promising, and pays a lot of money, but I just don’t think it’s possible. 4,200 - 4,400 miles in a 7-8 day period while running recaps.

Running on recaps

Hey guys. I have a few questions. If I want to run on recaps how many hours should should I actually be driving per day? In addition, what about the time I need each day to get fuel and bathroom breaks and godforbid I want to take a shower?

I’m trying to add all this up and it seems like I would go over 70 hours in an 8 day period. Can someone help me figure this out?
