Is 900 Tractors Considered A Large Company?

I was looking into May Trucking as a possible company to work for, and it looks like they're a fleet of about 900 tractors. Is this considered a large company or more of a medium sized? The reason I ask is because after reading Brett Aquila's book, I fully agree with being able to take advantage of all the amenities that a large company will provide on the road with things like accounts with repair shops, tow truck companies, hotels and the like. Would a company like May be big enough for this?

May is a fine company and definitely large enough to take care of your needs while out on the road. I see a lot of May trucks out on the road whenever I am running out West. We have at least one of our members here on the forum that works at May.

Thanks Old School. I was hoping it was big enough to be the case. Yes, I've spoken with the driver on the website who works for May and he just answered some of my questions. He seems really pleased with the company overall. Great pics you have up by the way. Especially the long horned cow! :)

I almost went with May. The profile here at TT says no pets but they do have a pet policy now.

Well that's always a plus. I'm sure a dog helps immensely with morale on the road. I don't have a pet but maybe ill consider getting one. Think they'll let me bring a giraffe?? rofl-3.gif

I was very interested in them too but they are only OTR and I needed something local. Yes, they do have a pet policy and an additional rider policy.

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Well it seems several people were or are interested in that company so that's always a good sign.
