Hey everyone I've been at crete on the national side for 3 months now the first month I was getting great runs 1000 miles and better but the last couple months I've been getting a lot of short runs I'm talking 300 miles a day which I hate but I was wondering if anyone one else is having similar issues thanks in advance

I work for Crete on the Walmart Dedicated fleet out of North Platte. but when I was a national driver, I never got such short loads. I would reach out to your asset manager to see what they might have to say. I know they were mentioning a few weeks back how drivers are seeing shorter miles due to the whole COVID-19, but things have been opening back up.

Have you been making on time deliveries by any chance?

Give me an hour to eat, then I'll give you my 60 day average length of my trips.

I came back to drive for CCC two months ago.

Now, must eat!!!

Finally are, so I can process figures in my head now.

So far, I've had 31 loads.

23,164 total miles (empty and loaded)

Average of each trip is 747 miles.

Shortest trip was 123 miles (moving an empty trailer to a repair shop).

Longest trip is the current one at 1431 miles.

I prefer longer trips, too, but if you do one 400 mile trip each day for 30 days, that's a 12,000 mile month. Days off are overrated!
