    In a suprise and totally unexpected move today, ATS increased mileage pay $.25 for loaded miles going into Canada. Because I go into Canada, frequently, I am extremely pleased. For example, I have a load tomorrow which loads in Waco, TX and delivers in Surrey, BC, 2205 loaded miles which will net me an extra $551.25.

    I may have to accept more Canadian loads now!

    Is the rest of the scale the same as it was when I left or has that changed also?

    Terry, i live in Austin too ,worked for Landstar till August 2011. Then I had to kiss my old truck good buy , she was not worth fixing. So I called one day to ATS to hear what they have to offer. When I heard their pay scale from 83cpm to 1.25 cpm I hung up . I ran to Regina or Calgary or Edmonton out Of Waco or Houston not less then 3.50 p/m. Sometime 4.50 . And it's not OD loads. Just tarped steel. Landstar pays you 73% on flatbed. So do some calculation .

    Spent 3 months at Lone star transportation , pretty good place for flatbed drivers, but now pulling reefer coast to coast for a friend of mine.almost ready to get another truck , maybe two more months.lone star would be a good place to go as o/o . But I'm not sure if they take me back since a was a company driver.

    Well, once you added in all accessorial pay, it was quite a bit higher. I was netting $5k per week when I left. I thought about Landstar, but decided to get my own authority.
