I-95 south

i really appreciate that help honestly. It was a headache friday trying to come down the road. The ny traffic was horrific and then Baltimore wasnt any better. ill definetly be putting this out there for them to look at i appreciate the info

I was in Norton, Massachusetts. At ap exhaust technology. I was headed towards Henderson nc

There are a few variables from there, but I would choose from mainly two.

really

First option is to run straight down 95 through nyc and south. That route is around 670 miles to the rcvr.

Second option is to go from norton up to 90, then 84, then 684 down to the route I described. I would cut over from Winchester, VA via US50 and US17 back over to 95 South. This would be a total of 740ish miles.

Option 2 would add 70ish miles to the trip, but would avoid all of the headache that comes with the northeast 95 corridor.

I have a deep-seeded hatred for 95 anywhere north of Richmond. I've had so many bad traffic-related experiences up there, and I avoid it whenever possible. However, if I can plan my trip to roll through there at night, it's not usually a problem.

My company gives me enough flexibility to route myself as I see fit, within reason of course. There's no question that I'll always go with option 2. It's a nice quiet route, with little to no traffic. Of course you would have to make sure your compas ok with you routing yourself in this way.

Your results may vary...

Tappan Zee for sure.

Depending on where in Mass you'll be coming from and where down south you'll be going, you'll take 287 over the Tappan Zee, continue down to 78west, take that over to Harrisburg, PA and pick up 81south, run that all the way down to 77south, that'll bring you through Charlotte and into Columbia, SC where you'll pick up 26east, and that'll bring you back over to 95 for points south.

Adds 65 miles to the trip, but saves tons of time and headache rolling through NYC, balt, philly, DC, etc.

There are several options if you wanted to cut over to 95 sooner, like for Richmond or wherever.

Western Express

double-quotes-start.png

I decided to give western Express a try.

double-quotes-end.png

Hello Jamere!

I got my foot in the door of this career when Western Express gave me a shot at proving myself to them. To be honest that's how you have to approach getting started in this career. You're not "giving them a try" - they are giving you a try. These large trucking companies really know what they're doing. Don't let the lousy internet reviews fool you.

We all are given a chance to shine when they invite us to orientation. They give us the opportunity to show we can perform at the highest levels in a job that requires heroic efforts. Very few people who make that attempt are prepared for what lies ahead. Brett often says it's an extraordinary job for extraordinary people, and that right there is some "real talk."

I did well at Western Express, and they've got plenty of other drivers doing well also. Always remember that this is a performance based business. It's a lot like sports. The people who work hard and demonstrate the peculiar talents that set them apart from the others on the field are the ones who go on to be successful.

Focus on how to improve your results. Don't worry about stuff you don't really understand about how they run the company. You're responsible for how you run your truck. The results you get are your own measure of how you are doing. As long as you keep improving, they will keep you moving. That's how the game is played. Good luck my friend, and jump in here if you're struggling. We will be glad to help ya!

Don't forget to read this. It will help you understand the basics for how to improve your results.

Speaking on being out making money, Old School is a top performer here and may chime in once he gets a breather. From many of his previous posts, he was very successful and enjoyed his time there. Search his name out up above and you can read up on several other folks asking about western express and his replies.

In your first year you will keep learning. You will vastly improve your backing and your confidence. If you prove yourself, you will also make a good bit of money. You will work 7 days a week. You will see this beautiful country. You will get frustrated. You will get into and out of jams. At the end of that first year you will have accomplished something great and helped Americans get the things they need and want to buy. Good luck.

Thank you @Big Scott I appreciate the word. How long have you been driving?

Up and coming Trucking School Graduate

What's going on guys. My name is Jay-3. I been on this page for a while, but finally this year I'm finally finishing up trucking school and graduating. I'm 25 years old, and I'm excited but also nervous. It’s a career I been wanting to enter since I was 21, but mentally I was still native and I wasn’t prepared to make the transition. 4 Years later I’m back and ready to do something great with myself. I’m open-minded and I’m friendly I take criticism well and I apply everything I learn. I just want to hear from some of you guys young and old and just want to know what should I look forward to in my first year driving. I will always appreciate what you tell me and keep it to my mind and soul.
