anyone know of drybulk companies that hire local, regional, or otr drivers out of tucumcari nm? this is a hard area to live at because very little freight ends up here and companies are saying that home time is hard to guaratee

I did dry bulk could not make no money at it. I drove for Venezia Transport. I didnt like the 14 hr days at all. Takes to long to get unloaded. 1 /12 to 2 hr.

Yea right off of rt 322. It was local. It wasnt a bad job i like pullin a dry bulk tanker. It was just the low pay and long hrs. that got to me. If i could find a good dry bulk job that paid by the hr. i would take it.
