We have many drivers that prefer to be home on Friday and start work on Monday morning. With our 85% drop and hook network, these drivers still earn a substantial, steady income and achieve between 2,300 and 2,800+ miles per week. Depending on where the driver lives, these drivers also often get a night at home during the week as well, so 4 or 5 nights at home and 2 or 3 on the road during the week.
Every driver in our regional fleet has been home every weekend for years. At Armstrong, we will take the time to get to know your preferred schedule for home time and make it happen. And no matter where you live in our network, you'll still get home every weekend.
Our network of repeat, dry-van customer freight is 85% drop and hook on both ends. We run primarily in the states of Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Illinois and Indiana. Most trips are between 350 and 550 miles, many with simple, easy, 24-hour drop deliveries. You'll visit the same group of customer locations on a regular basis, but we will throw in something different from time to time as well. And by the way, our freight is 100% no-touch and always will be.
