Well hi guys/gals. Its been awhile we left CRST. My wife and I did fight through the BS and finished our contract. CRST wasn't all bad we had good times and bad times. But what's new CRST tried to hold my contract took them over 30 days to get me mine but my wife got hers right away. Took some legal calls to get them to mail it to me. I now drive solo for West Side Transport. A much smaller company we about 500 trucks but only run about 380 or so. I'm happy here I'm treated excellent. I have a great DM who on a bonus is an actual retired driver so he knows the driver aspect of it. All the struggles all frustrations and so on. I run Midwest Regional. I'm out 5 days and home for my 34 I have a guaranteed pay commitment of 850 a week not much but I'm still new it will go up with experience. I love this job and best of all my 2 dogs and wife can ride with when they want too. Anyhow I just wanted to thank you guys and let you know how much this site has helped me and my wife during our first year out.


Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.


Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
