As of now, it's a hurry up and wait game. I have a couple people who are going to look at the bike Friday. If it sells I'm looking at early October for a start date. I looked into the 160 driving academy in Columbus as well as spoke to Knight transportation. I still think for company sponsored I will go with either Veriha or Schneider. If I can get into the 160 driving academy that would work as well and hopefully go work at Sysco as they are 30 minutes from me. I will update when I finally sell my motorcycle

Christopher,

Good luck in moving forward. I would opt for Sysco myself as it is a good company, close to home, local work and great pay and benefits. Of course it will not work out for a lot of people but being home daily seems to be a plus for you. Have at it.

I work for Millis, we have a terminal in Trenton and I know they need midwest regional guys now. Not sure where your located but they also have local guys in the area if you dont like regional. Also we run the Miller brewery in trenton and they hire spotters as well if your interested in that as well. I did a diary a few years back as well as another driver still with us, pete e pothole. I cant speak for any other training programs but Millis is very picky and because of that classes are small. It will be you and 4 other students max, so tons of driving time and tons of backing time. We also have a terminal in columbus if your closer to there, but the class is in trenton.

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.

Regional:

Regional Route

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.
