Hopefully Greatwides Trucking operation is better than its Insurance Operations. We are still trying to collect several thousands in Health Insurance Claims from Greatwide Insurance 2 years and counting.

I am surprised to see so many GreatWide tractors pulling Wal-Mart trailers. Frankly, most of them look like $#!+ and I don't think it's good to Wally World's image.

I was leased to then for a month and would not advise unless your truck is paid for.Was told 1800 miles a week is a good week. u do the math .85 cpm down to .80 cpm depending on lenght + an avg f/s .This is the Clarksville ,AR location anyway.

Greatwide - the parent company is an Insurance company, and a bunch of crooks. My reference was to the fact, that I would not lease a truck on, or work for them as a company driver. The overall business practices of the parent company can leave you high and dry, and owing you a bunch of money. They claim to be this great logistics company, but they have cut freight rates, and bought out competitors to keep them down. Why else would you think Walmart would contract with them.

Listen to their commercials on XM and Siruis, they stress having the best medical and liablility coverage in the country.
