    Pros

    Safety doesn't ride your butt. (Because nobody communicates to each other). Oh wait, they are crazy about inward facing cameras, huge deal.

    Cons

    Everything. No communication between dispatch,drivers, safety, terminal Managers, payroll, most terminals lack even the basic necessities such as a bathroom or even a place to do paperwork. Slow to pay on some things. Absolutely no maintenance department, zero shops, totally up to the drivers to maintain equipment. Will close am account or terminal without any notice to the drivers and expect them to just pack up and move... Sometimes two it three states away!! Yes, true.!!! They run off every experienced liquid bulk transport executive they hired when they decided to start this end if the business. That means everyone now running the liquid bulk side has almost zero experience doing anything OTR. ALMOST ZERO!!! Patrick Cozzens is clueless about what is going on. His executive staff will lie and throw their underlings under the bus and go behind his back to try and fix what they screwed up. It is horrible. Everything is done they email. EVERYTHING. permits, dispatch, settlement sheets, safety, even the customer has to email them wait for someone to respond. Half the time nobody can make a decision and it's left up to the driver to do what is right and then hope he/she gets paid for it. This company could be awesome. But do many at the top are too busy covering their butts and firing people. Every person that gets fired because another driver quit, got fired because someone above them screwed up. It's insane.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Walk away. Let Cozzens hire people that know this industry. Stop blowing smoke up his butt and step away. Patrick Cozzens, if you see this. You are being lied to. You have an opportunity to make a great business but the people around you are stopping it from happening. I have no way to communicate to you directly and I would love to have your ear just to see if this is intentional or if what myself and many others at the bottom of the pond are thinking is true.
