Calexico would be perfect as I'm about 3 miles away in Mexicali. Or at least that's where I live. I'm in NC right now for school.

When would you recommend I contact CFI? I won't finish the school til June 17.

You can try CFI, we have a drop yard in Calexico and a terminal in Fontana. Like most companies CFI has programs for Vets. Good luck.

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.

I would call a recruiter now. Let them know the school your attending and when you will be done. If I understand you correctly, you live in Mexico. If that is correct we also have a terminal there. We are one of the largest cross boarder carriers into Mexico.

Just spoke with CFI. Biggest issue I'd have is he said they don't usually hire drivers out of CA and the driver's license needs to be in the state you take the majority of your home time.

I could use Yuma or Phoenix and an AZ license but I literally just surrendered my AZ license for an NC one yesterday. Certainly if they offer me a job I could change it back but the address I use in AZ is less reliable as it's a friend and my NC address is family.

He did say he has a buddy that does something similar in Laredo, crossed back into Mex for his home time from Laredo.

He's sending info via email and said to research CFI on YouTube and keep in touch as I near getting my CDL.

Congratulations.

Tanker endorsement for some of the large capacity liquid totes we haul occasionally.

Like these? This is our mulch dying operation.

We haul them as well, they are usually pretty heavy. Had a trailer with 4 of those on it and it was overweight on the nose by almost 2k pounds.

Had another load with 4 different bulk shipments of something corrosive. So that's 4 placards for each with 4 stick on numbers for each placard.
