Definitely not trying to lease anytime soon.. Appreciate it.

I know this post is 5 months old but came across it looking up info on kllm. Im waiting on my approval to go through their refresher course. You are not forced to lease. They have a ton of different choices you can make whether it be otr , regional , lease. They also offer both cdl-a school or refresher courses and your training is done on state of the art simulators as well as actual equipment. KLLM has merged with ffe also. Just figured id throw this out there in case youre still looking around

Regional:

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.

One other thing to mention is that you must live close to (like 50 miles or less) to their Atlanta or Chicago terminals to do regional. Otherwise you will be OTR with them which is out 14 and home 2 (also hometime cannot be requested at all until you have been out 14 so you will usually be out more like 20/21 before coming home). I started to go with KLLM but then found out how their hometime worked and changed my mind as I want to be home more than that and didn't care much for hauling a reefer anyways ha. Most likely going to go with Swift Transport due to their large offerings of regional and dedicated lanes that are offered after you proof yourself to be a safe and reliable driver.
