MG I am very sorry to hear of your experiences. You have the right attitude. There are tons of companies out there, and they are all looking for drivers. The ball is really in your court . I agree with your kids. You would have been miserable there in the end, and that would have carried over to your home life. I wore a blue uniform for 28 years and traded it in for t-shirts and jeans. Lol. Much better for me at this time in my life. You have gotten tons of encouragement and words of wisdom. And you always will on here. If your off base you will be told also. No discrimination here. Start hittin the companies and find that right fit for you.

Does Melton have LTL or Linehaul?

-mountain girl

LTL:

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

Linehaul:

Linehaul drivers will normally run loads from terminal to terminal for LTL (Less than Truckload) companies.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning them to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.
