Gone but never forgotten.

USX was a great experience for Craig and I.  I don’t think we could have chosen a better company to have started out with.  In November we decided to make a switch to another company, though still under USX.  We had high hopes that this company would be as successful for us as USX.  Unfortunately there were issues pretty much from the start with them.  Freight was done, they lost a key account and to be honest they seemed a little disorganized.  We tried to stay with it but it got to the point we were running more empty miles than loaded and doing multiple resets every week.

Craig has done a lot of research on companies for the past two years.  Trying to figure out where we wanted to land when we had our own truck and came up with one he thought was a cool fit.  What we were looking for was great people and the ability to book some of our own loads.  As Craig says, we don’t need to make more money, we need to make what we are making now and drive 20 days a month instead of 27.  That will allow us to spend more time with family and friends.  Connie and Steve are making the switch too.  We are going through orientation this weekend in Chattanooga and will share more information later.

I don’t want people to be worried that something bad happened.  It was mostly just that our current company was not able to keep us moving like we wanted.  Our experience ended up a little on a sour note but that has nothing to do with USX.  It’s just time to make a change.  We are super excited about this new adventure and will keep you all posted on it.  Monday is the beginning of the next chapter.
