    Pros

    Well maintained trucks Apu In cab scanners Quality inverters Downtime pay on faulty trailers Severe weather pay Layover pay one of the best in the industry Holiday pay one of very few trucking companies compensating 401 K Health benefits Detention Pay just after 1 st hour provided completed macros sent, paperwork One of the best when compared to major trucking fleets

    Cons

    Road Service needs more people not telling driver theres only two person to handle breakdown issues.

    Advice to Management

    More people needed to work in Road service during nite shift to cater for drivers instead of waiting on phone.Macro s should be sent directly to road service than to dispatch which get sent to road service.Time is money.
