I recently moved to Nashville after many years of thinking about relocating. I'm currently looking for work but want to pick somewhere to finish my career out. I've done a little research and found M&W Logistics Group, anybody know anything about them? Looking to get more details and information from the inside. Thanks!

Sorry i have not heard anything about them but what type of trucking are you looking for and are you an owner operator? I live close to nashville and might be able to point you to someone who can help you.

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.

Here is a better site for finding trucking companies. It also lists the number of trucks and drivers they have.

Here is the Nashville page....

This is the site that I was really looking for. If they have a small number of trucks and drivers then I would say you can skip over those. One truck and one driver is going to be an owner op.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I work for YRC and go into Nashville once in a while to one of our Terminals. It is a Union linehaul company with great benefits. You might check them out. I think Old Dominion has a terminal there as well which is another one I would look into.

Woody

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

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.

NADC. This was before I knew that spending that kind of money was going to be a bad idea. I don't regret it though because I met a ton of great people.
