Practical miles: The miles on the most practical route (what most co now pay)
Hub : All miles driven even if you get lost miss turn lap around truckstop.
HHG: hosehold movers guide, zip code to zip code , usually 10% or more less miles than practical

For every lap I make, I get paid. Hub miles, the only why to get paid by the mile. :D

Nope that would be Hub miles
Practical mile is calculated on a practical route that is all truck routes from origin to destination and is usually pre determined by your company or broker.
Hub miles you turn in the miles you drove and they pay on those miles.

hang on to that one

And of course, their is the BIG company discount. That usually means what ever miles your company quotes the customer as paid miles, that the amount you get paid. Be sure to ask certain companies about the 10% varience......I won't name any companies shaving miles, but I did find a few runs past that 10%. Something to think about.

We go by hub miles. Our trucks have hubometers. Of course, we dont get paid by the mile, just by the hour. :? :P
