Well, my current license is NC so the address I'd be "hired from" is NC.

I live just across from Calexico CA in Mexicali. My preference would be a company that can put me home out west. Phoenix area, San Diego or LA area or even Yuma or Calexico but I'm not picky. I'm wanting to run long times out - 4-6+ weeks and then take a corresponding long time home.

At this point I may have to bite the bullet and just get hired in NC with a company that can give me the home time then fly myself out West and back. If I'm out 6 weeks at a time it won't be but about 3-4 cycles of that before my wife's visa is approved and we move to NC and I won't be split across the nation.

A few companies come to mind, that would run either state:

  • Raider Express
  • Pride Transport
  • Witte Bros.
  • TFI (formerly CFI)
  • West Side Transport
  • H.O. Wolding
  • US Xpress

There are so many, but that's a few that I know of, that may hire you fresh, and then transfer you.

Best wishes; congrat the 'mama' from us!

Knight runs out of Phoenix!

Lots of the larger trucking companies have terminals within a 50 mile radius of Phoenix, same as most every other metropolitan area.

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.
