Jim Palmer Trucking based in Montana

For anyone paying attention to this still, I'm actually in Montana right now with Jim Palmer going through my first week getting my CDL.

Hey there Jeff,

Let me be the first to congratulate you on living the dream. Please keep us updated on your progress. On the outside, it looks like a great company to be with and I wish you the best.

Jim Palmer Trucking based in Montana

Jared, You and I are on an identical target course and I've been really studying these companies in our area in Idaho and this is my take for you. I don't have first hand inside yet anywhere other than speaking to their recruiter supervisor, Haley, who has been very friendly and professional. I can tell you that my general feel for this company is that they are the real deal and they don't have to take shades of the truth to bring anybody in. In fact, in my finite observation, I'm sure Jim Palmer has to be very well known at their level of operation in the industry and has humbly operated day by day and year after year, quietly doing very good business practice. We need companies like them. On their new corporate formation with O&S and Wil-Trans; DOT 1009435 and look into them here; FMCSA Ratings and I believe that tells some of the story about them and the company they keep. You're already are aware of their starting wage and their equipment being all 2015-16 Peterbilt 579's and Freightliner Cascadia's loaded up, that almost makes me salivate, look a little closer at things like their community involvement, their emphasis on a family atmosphere philosophy on how they desire to know the people they work with, this is not a common thing. Now I don't know about Wil-Trans reputation who probably had the larger interest in this venture, but I'm looking everywhere and seeing nice equipment there, not to mention at O&S. They do appear to have something going with Prime and it may be that they are their key overflow support. Jared, this consolidation effort looks to me like a unified effort that people dream about being involved in. I encourage you and I know this sounds funny, trust that recruiter and move forward and I hope you get an invite. Due to my background issues with old DUI's I may have to wait a while, but someday I hope to be in the caliber of this company, even if I have to school local first. Seattle also is a natural for this company to get you home and on-time, just a 475 mile straight shot from Missoula in the busiest cargo area of the Northwest at I-5 and I-90, it's almost like just down the street and you should have frequent loads in that direction. My very best to you Jared!
