Expediting is a special niche in the transportation industry dedicated to time sensitive freight.
No you don’t. JAS owns all their own trucks and drivers lease them.
While downtime can occur, the amount of downtime associated with expedited trucking isn’t much different than the amount of downtime associated with other types of trucking.
This question is best answered by you. You are paid by percentage of your loads, so the more loads you do the more money you make.
This is different than most types of trucking, in that we don't worry so much about miles as we do dollars. In expediting we make more per mile so we don't need to run the amount of miles that other types of trucking companies, basically in expediting more money less miles.
Jas would like to see the drivers out for at least 2 weeks with 2 days home. We also offer 3 weeks out, 3 days’ home, and 4 weeks out with 5 days’ home.
Due to the nature of our business in the just in time arena of transportation there are not any runs like this available as we are currently adapting to the needs of our ever-increasing customer base.
While you are working with Panther Dispatch, you will talk to the owner of JAS or the driver manager every time you call into JAS.
There are a few trucks that JAS runs as solos, but the trucks are limited and it is also based on your experience in the expediting field.
