    I worked at KLLM Transport Services

    Pros

    I thought the miles were reasonably good. Equipment was late model Freightliner Cascadia and most trailers were decent. They got me home when requested. Main terminal facilities were good.

    Cons

    Night and weekend dispatch was poor. Lucky on weekend days to ever get through if needing help with a problem. I had the feeling that drivers were just not important. Highly underpaid for the amount of time that company requires, but that is inherent in the industry unfortunately. Load planning / appointment setting was abysmal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More attention to driver morale would greatly benefit all concerned. Fix night and weekend dispatch by adding staff as the problems mainly appear to be shortage of dispatchers with result being employees drastically overworked and drivers being left without proper timely information and assistance. Fix load planning so drivers are not constantly given loads already late.

    Pros

    Decent equipment new trailers lots of miles

    Cons

    Dispatchers try to make you run over your HOS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find real dispatchers who know what HOS is and have the ability to route you to where you need to be

    Everthing, they don't care about the Owner Operators making money unless you and the management are buddy buddys

    Get rid of most of your dispatcher and start over

    Pros

    The people you work with are great and supportive, you get sick time and holiday from the start. KLLM is having growing pains since it bought FFE in November.

    Cons

    The management did not plan the merger of KLLM and FFE together very well, people were hired and thrown into jobs unprepared. People are feeling over worked and under paid, and like mangers don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to your employees we have some some valuable ideas, we have not had any input on the FFE merger. We feel and and are being treated like we were bought by FFE by there employees, we worry that the company we worked to rebuild is gojng to be ruined by FFE.

    Pros

    great communication, they keep you busy

    Cons

    fresh express loads can be a real headache

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the rest of the company was ran the way the Portage IN terminal was ran, it would be perfect! Get a clue Jackson and Atlanta!!!
