New port haulers
My wife retired from teaching and bought two day cabs. I sold my logging co and we started pulling containers a few weeks ago.
The Savannah port is very orderly and well laid out. Unloading and loading can take 45 min to 90 min in and out. We have had good experiences so far. Everyone has been very helpful and nice.
We run 23 miles one way loaded and usually bring back an empty for $135 round trip. We do two or three of these each per day. We also do a few yard to port in and outs for $70 round trip. These are about 4 miles including running around in the port. We do $2,000. per week or better after fuel and deductions with both trucks.
Many days we only put in 6 or 7 hours. We are very happy with the work. Takes 4 to 8 weeks to get twic card. We had no training, they just kinda pointed down the road and said have at it.
Took a bit to learn the ropes, but after just a few weeks we can walk the dog in and out of the port.
