Hello all I’m back from Mexico had a blast now back to work :( lol well anyways not driving yet but the dairy where I’m from wants to hire me and have a friend there who would train me. Just waiting to hear back they have some trucks in shop and there moving some people around. Also I have an interview on Friday for oak harbor freight lines. If anyone has any info on them that would be awesome! I applied for both line haul and p&d not sure which one I’m interviewing for tho lol thanks.

P&D:

Pickup & Delivery

Local drivers that stay around their area, usually within 100 mile radius of a terminal, picking up and delivering loads.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers for instance will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

Line Haul:

Linehaul drivers will normally run loads from terminal to terminal for LTL (Less than Truckload) companies.

Welcome BACK, Rhine ~!!!

Mexico IS a blast; I've not been in years, however. (Pix would be cool, jsyk!!)

We missed ya; I'm surprised the 'guys' didn't have me doing a P/I check on ya yet, haha!!! (Skills, ya know ?!?!?) rofl-3.gif

OHFL has a couple terminals here in Ohio (they sure have a LOT!!) and when I was in the truck w/the hubby a few years back; we'd see a few of their T/T's at truckstops, and on the road. Seemed quite nice; drivers were professional and equipment looked good from what I recall. They mostly operate in the PNW iirc, though.

Wish I had more for ya. LET US KNOW what gives, either way. Are they a training company, do you know?!?!?!

This dairy company...would you be pulling tanks/dairy? Just curious; you know me, haha!

Wish you the best; again, welcome back!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Glad I made it back in one piece but I’m itching to go back! Lol ill get a few up soon. Oh ok thanks for the info. They operate mostly on the west side here yes. I see quite a few in Vegas here. They have a dock to driver program closest thing they have I believe. As for the dairy would be hauling hay depending on route I get. If I get the Utah run it’d be just hay. So we’ll see what they say at ohfl on Friday.
