I think Knight is reefer also, or at least a reefer division.. I think they are hurting for business like most everybody else, figure the reefer side would be doing a little better since people still need to eat. Don't let reefer scare you, everything is push button, the only thing you have to do is set the temp you want it at and fill the fuel tank. It does require a little more messing around though, like finding/returning pallets, trl washouts, just about all lumper load/unloads but it pays more, of course I want nothing to do with a reefer but that is because dealing with grocery warehouses drive me to the brink of violence

My question is, if it took 16 hours waiting why did you not off load it yourself and save the bucks? Also be on your way earlier?

Reefer would be my last choice. I would end up driving the truck right into the building at a grocery warehouse. I really think those places only hire ex government employees.

Anyone have additional questions about refrigerated freight? I find smaller companies pay refeer less and hire unqualified drivers for the job, also depends on the dedicated routes a company gains. Let me know if anyone is looking for great regional routes.
