Need recommendations for getting started

Oh almost forgot. We also have the 1 year deal Errol was talking about at Swift. Not a perk for vets though, just the standard deal. Put in a year and school was free.

Need recommendations for getting started

Just for the record Wilson company trucks are governed at 62. Lease operators can have it changed to 65. Our trucks do not have cameras but pretty much everyone puts a forward facing camera in for their own piece of mind. You can have other people on your truck but but you have to drive solo for a stint first and probably pay insurance on any passengers. We also allow pets with no size or weight restrictions. If I remember our rule is 4 heartbeats. 2 people 2 animals or 1 person 3 animals. You get the idea. Not trying to recruit you just giving some info for your short list.

Orientation During Crisis

Wilson is still doing "normal" orientation and training at the moment just with a skeleton crew. Of course we only have about 6 new people a week anyway.

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

Remy get's serious...

In all seriousness, it has affected freight. Right now I'm sitting on a load for 3 days because the DC it was going to is severely understaffed. Not even room to drop. They are also taking my temp at gates before letting me in. According to my FM it's really changing the way the freight lanes operate. The ones that used to be constantly busy like Walmarts and Costcos are slowing way down while ones that used to be dead are picking up.

I run Walmart Dedicated grocery; we've never been busier. Perhaps Turtle will check-in on this as well, he is WMPF based in Johnstown NY, also a grocery DC. I am assigned to the Pottsville PA DC. GM (General Merchandise), possibly not so much right now.

Of course I can only tell you what I'm seeing from my pov and what my fm tells me about the bigger picture. Of course if you are super busy that explains why we are backed up. For reference I'm waiting on the Jeffersonville OH DC.

Future rookie driver from Iowa looking for recommendations on choosing a company

I drive for Wilson Logistics. I've only been with the company for about 5 months so take this for what it's worth: We have no size or breed restrictions on pets and they have been pretty good to me. If I remember correctly we also have a waiting period before you can bring another heartbeat onto the truck.
