They also don’t buy American. That’s a European spec trailer.

Guaranteed minimum pay is a great recruiting tool. I think you will see more Companies transitioning to that model to recruit and retain drivers, just as they have been adding amenities such as inverters, refrigerators, directv, etc. to lure and retain drivers. With the new drug and alcohol database coming on line soon, along with the retirement of many "Oldtimers" looming, a "better way" to keep safe quality drivers needs to come into play. Capitalism and competition will only improve driver pay over the next several years.

I doubt that is one of K&B Transportations trailers. I don't think they would use one of their own trailers in a ditch in their own advertisement! At least I would hope not!

All good points!

I suspect there are requirements for the guarantee, of course. Usual stuff like no service failures and willingness to drive when asked...

It looks like a Krone trailer with a DAF tractor (Paccar) European

If they used a domestic carrier, probably get a cease and disist letter.

Oh hi, I'm new! I'm looking for a career change. I'll post a formal intro soon not to highjack thread.

KB is an all reefer company as far as I know. That tri axle is definetly not theirs. They have been doing the guarantee thing for quite awhile now. They seem to be mainly a midwest company and all their equipment looks to be newer from what I have seen.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

The picture looks like it was taken in Siberia, one of my favorite tourist destinations.

I have noticed a lot of advertisements in the US use European trucks for some reason. I guess the marketing companies cant be bothered to look up the difference.

I remember seeing a ad for a local company that is all older day cab dry vans and the ad had a custom flat nose Pete with a huge sleeper pulling a flat bed trailer none of which they have.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.
