KLLM don't care if they quit they will be replaced

Does KLLM stand for "keep late loads moving" or "keep lot lizards money"?

David Pitts · May 31, 2019 at 1:45 am

KLLM is a starter company period

Wow. Almost applied with the last month. But decided to find something with more home time. I dodged a bullet

"Frozen out of market….." "Rates are cooling off…." — More temp division jokes!

Hmm! Sounds like maverick should have stayed in their stuck to flat bedding.

Thank you for this video. I just got approved for Maverick's training and they decided to tell me they aren't hiring for reefer after they KNEW for weeks that's what I wanted. Now I see why, they weren't as successful as others at it. So they assigned me to the glass division for when I finish training. Btw love the videos I've seen of yours, I just happened upon you tonight, and I'm now a new sub to your channel. ☺

Just general observation, if flat bed freight pays better and drivers get a higher wage, then having a reefer division with lower freight rates would have to have a lower driver pay scale.

The physical work of a flat bed versus sleeping with a noisy reefer does not justify parity of pay.

However, what is a good rate for reefer truck driver who deals with farms, lumpers, temperature problems, etc. Are the large shippers totally into large fleets that play cut rate games. Maverick at a 150 trucks for the reefer division may have been caught between the small fleet that can offer better niche service and the low cost large fleet. Is there a fleet say over 500 trucks pulling reefers that pays well and treats drivers fairly, are they supported by cost advantages of other freight divisions or a stand alone company. Certainly private fleets for meat packers, walmart, etc, are good but any decent stand alone decent independent common carrier. I can't think of one, but I have been out the game for a decade. If they have lease purchase then contractors will get more free dead head than company drivers and this in my mind disqualifies them as a good company if it benefits the company driver.

Maverick got into refer hauling about 8 years ago. They had a balling deal with tyson BUT then they couldn't produce (no pun intended). They really never have been a player in the refer arena. AS far a KLLM being trash I would say for most Maverick drivers it would be a lateral move.
