Great news, Kevin, and good luck.

I had thought of mentioning CR England where my son started almost two years ago. He had less work experience than you, had gone to college but decided to quit and drive instead. He had a mixture of good and bad experiences there but after putting in 7-8 months he was eligible to get hired with Marten 14 months ago and he's been loving it. Hope you do well.

I would just like to really thank you for giving me those names. You really helped me out. I am currently in school with witte brothers. You do not know how much I am grateful to you for helping me find a place to get my foot in the door! It means a lot to me thanks.







You only have 1 year of work history? And that was before taking care of your grandparents?

You may have to get a job for a year and then reapply.

You can try working on the dock for an LTL company such as Old Dominion, FedEx Fright or Estes and apply to their dock to driver programs.




I have 1 year 2 months work history as of last week. I have applied to the places you have recommended. thank you for the reply. just feeling no hope right now I was excited to start a new career.



Again, Location. ADD yours! You appear young; could work in your favor.

Look into: Dutch Maid Logistics, Pride, Witte Bros., Mast, and Raider Express.

Best tho, surely someone from OUR LIST might contact ya!

Kevin, you are MOST WELCOME!

I sure hope things work out for you there; my other half has been almost 2.5 million miles on the roads....I know of a few 'diamonds' I hear of, here and there! Witte is not fleet huge, but highly recommended.

Good folk, aren't they?!?!?

PLEASE let us know!!! A diary would be awesome, as well.

Always glad to help; best wishes!

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
