I have a good experience with LogLink company, that can help you.

I am a driver from Germany and I ventured to go to US, because I heard from my colleges about good salary. Then I found LogLink. They offered me a job in USA like a subcontracter. Initially I was afraid, but decide to venture.

And I'm really satisfied. It was 3 months of hard-working but profit worth it. Fast internship, where I got 50$ per day, good coach and good communication whith team.

It doesn't fit for those who wants to travel around US. It's tricky and tough, but I like it.

Next time I hope to return. Maybe there is somebody who has similar experience with transporting companies?

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.

Pre-trip Inspection:

A pre-trip inspection is a thorough inspection of the truck completed before driving for the first time each day.

Federal and state laws require that drivers inspect their vehicles. Federal and state inspectors also may inspect your vehicles. If they judge a vehicle to be unsafe, they will put it “out of service” until it is repaired.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.

Awesome, i will hit them up to get more info on it, i think my school will be accepted it's all over the country (160 Driving Academy). I had my CDL test around a week ago and thankfully passed it and got my CDL.

CFI is dry van , refer and some flatbed. If your school is accepted then you would go out with a trainer for about 3 weeks. A recruiter could tell you if we have any dedicated or regional in your area to get you home weekly.

My friend's nephew just started driving with TMC. He is liking flatbed so far.

Best of luck to you.
