He is 100% correct! A very hard and expensive lesson learned. Even though everything was specific in the contract and we would win in a court of law. It’s the time, hard work and mental stress that ultimately cost the most. It’s just not worth it!! Always always go with a reputable company, ALWAYS!!

That’s was tuff to admit but those are the facts.

For anyone just reading along for general information, this is yet another example of why we strongly advise to avoid two options: One is leasing, and the second is any 1099 company. The driver ends up with all the risk and little to show for it if things go sideways. It happens often, and when it does, it seldom ends well for the driver.

This was an expensive lesson that could have been avoided easily with a few questions posted on this site before jumping into the abyss.


Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.


Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices
