Here's what I said about Swift a day ago:

On, I'm on TT a lot (my favorite pastime right now), I drive for Swift. I guess that makes me a "Swift expert".

I have no complaints about Swift as an employer. In my first months OTR I was averaging just under 2,000 miles a week, and stayed out two weeks at a time. So I was grossing in the $700/week area.

I think there's a big divide East-West. As a solo driver it's seldom you cross the continent. You can still get 1300 mile loads, though. After the first few months, as I got close to my destination, the planners would lay my next dispatch on me. There may be some wait time, but I always had a load to get.

Right now I'm running a shuttle - a fixed route 4-5 days a week, 512 loaded miles a day. Home every night. Such is life.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
