Flatbed truckers! Tarp?

To Flatbed truckers (preferably with a couple years experience), how often do you guys have to tarp/strap your load? Is it very often or rare? I heard one flatbedder say 9 times out of 10 that the shipper tarps it themselves.

To all Prime inc drivers,

I have 3 questions.

1. What’s the orientation road test like?

2. What kind of freight do you haul? Only grocery loads or something else as well?

3. How many miles do you average a week?

Thank you in advance.

What’s needed to run my Xbox one in truck!

Hey all,

I was wondering what would be needed to run my Xbox one and Small TV in my truck? What exact equipment is needed (inverter etc). The exact names of the equipment would be awesome.

Also, won’t running an Xbox and TV on a truck battery completely murder the truck battery???

Prime Inc new CDL Grad Question

Hi all,

I am a new CDL Grad and I am going to Prime Inc in SpringField MO For training to begin my trucking career and was wondering how does the Driving Test go?

Is it that virtual driving test or a real truck driver driving test?

Lastly, Is it a complete pass or fail driving exam or a “just to see where you are driving exam”?

(So long as you don’t crash into anything of course).

Prime Inc The Truth?

Thank you so much for the info. I always love hearing from those in the trenches living it everyday. That’s where the real intel comes from. Aside from the opinionated idiots.

I am a company driver not lease team trainer and have been there 5 years in a couple weeks. We have 4 different divisions, 2 types of trucks and different pay for teams... So yes the pay is different.... And we just got a raise I announced here last week....

Reefer is now starting at 46cpm for a full size and 51 cpm in a lightweight

Including bonuses you are looking at about 51cpm in the full and 56cpm in the lightweight to start. If you consume less fuel and don't use sick leave you can earn more.

That is for starters... We have so many additional bonuses based on performance and longevity that each persons average is going to differ

Team pay starts at 55cpm split and increases with the miles. My friends just did 5400ish miles this week which paid them $2023 each. It came.out to like 74cpm split or 37cpm something like that.

As far as being force lease.... We have separate fleet managers for company drivers. I cannot stay with my FM if I go lease, and my FM does not want to lose. Trust me when I tell you that once you decide to go company and get your truck no one will try to push you lease. Will they ask you to team or train.. Sure. But you will never be asked to leave your FM and go lease.

Btw the cpm pertains to company drivers only. So the concept of being forced to go lease is stupid. What is the point of giving a cpm if you are forced to lease at % of the freight?

Companies that hire with recently being fire for an accident

Western Express and Swift gives chances to guys even with DUI (depending on how old it is). Pretty sure Western Express and Swift will give you a chance even with the accident and smartphone while driving. Especially with a year experience.

Also may I ask, how does Prime Inc work? I was told after training (for new grads), in order to drive for them you have to “lease” their truck. Meaning you have to pay for fuel, maintenance etc. is that true?

Prime Inc The Truth?

For current Prime inc drivers,

I’m a new CDL Grad and want to head to Prime Inc to get started but I’m hearing conflicting info from the recruiters and drivers.

My first question is: (After I complete the training) Do they make you “lease” their truck in order to continue working solo for them? Such as you pay for everything (fuel, maintenance etc.) and end up not owning the truck in the end?

Second question: what exactly do they pay CPM? I heard 3 different pay rates.

Third question: is their any other curveballs I should know about?
