So while I love Freymiller. I am so done with otr while my boys are growing up with me not there, and paying rent on an apartment in Titusville Fl that im at only 4 days a month. So long story longer I may be offered a dedicated route with swift on their florida walmart contract. They say its mostly Cocoa, Miami, and Tampa and ill make at least 1200 a week. Im taking it with a grain of salt because i know the recruiters are paid to give you homoney and hog crap but make it smell like a steak dinner. So has any had experience with the florida dedicated route with swift/walmart?

Dedicated Route:

A driver or carrier who transports cargo between regular, prescribed routes. Normally it means a driver will be dedicated to working for one particular customer like Walmart or Home Depot and they will only haul freight for that customer. You'll often hear drivers say something like, "I'm on the Walmart dedicated account."

OTR:

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.

OWI:

Operating While Intoxicated

I’ve been running Swift Walmart Dedicated in the Northeast for over 7 years.

$1200 per 6-day week is doable once you learn the account. Although the region in running out of is different; the operation is identical. Gotta hustle.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

What G-Town said is Truth. Although I'm Schneider Walmart Dedicated in Sterling, Il., you do hustle to make good money. My area is Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Northeast Indiana. I work anywhere between 60 and 70 hours a week, usually grossing $1200 to $1350 a week. Usually two loads a day, often only one load on Sunday, with the second load sometimes having a backhaul attached.

I've heard drivers complain of $600 weeks, but they often loiter at truck stops for lengthy meals and BS'ing.
