What is the average time away for the drivers and what is a typical run? I know many people have different expectations and this is one question that everyone asks.

I have been told by Steve Whittaker (H & R Driver ) and also David Foder ( H & R Transport Director) to expect to be away for up to 14 days. When you first start you can take as much time off as you like between runs but remember you are paid by the mile so if the wheels aren't turnin', you aint earnin'.

I was told to expect to do about 10,000 to 12,000 miles per month and if you look on the website it advertises 42c per mile international.

The company hauls reefers and i was told that most of the runs were hauling boxed and palletised frozen beef down to California, Nevada or Arizona. The back haul is normally fruit back up to Canada.

There are also trips around Canada and over the bumps to Vancouver.
Down in the States there are laws against "Interstating" so it looks like its one trip down, one trip up.

Hi lyndon,
This is a great idea here about a thread for H&R and if i get time i think i will start one for Yanke but at the moment i am busy with getting things sorted for my leaving in the very near future. I am also still hoping to start a blog for me and my life with Yanke so anyone can see what to expect.
Anyway great thread and pics too keep it up, you never know might cross paths at some point in the future.
Best of luck,
LOAFY...

Thats a good rate for international - alittle more than some people are told they are going to be on.. It seems like a really good company.

Good Luck

Hi Dave

Good to hear from you and great to see you are going for it, we have sold the house and are looking to be over there by the end of this month, hopefully see you over there.

Yes we did go thru VRV, don’t worry, H & R will be paying them, not you.

When you go to the interview, there will most probably be a rep from VRV and a rep from H & R, Annette Kooistra and Steve Whittaker.

Go and enjoy the interview and let us all know how you get on.

If there's anything you need to know please ask.

Lyndon

There are 700,000 trucks across Canada, 420,000 of which are used to carry freight commercially. The remainder can be found in the hands of governments, utility companies and farmers, and occasionally haul commercial goods such as machinery and equipment. About 500,000 are straight trucks and the remaining 200,000 are truck tractors

Three-fourths of American communities depend solely on trucking for delivery of goods and services.

Hi,

Can you explain this please....do you mean you can't drop off in Arizona then pick up there and drop off if Texas then pick up there and drop off in California....then back to Canada.

Have I understood this correctly....if so do you know why this is.

Davie,
If your taking a load out of Canada to the USA you MUST after you have delivered that said load take the next one you are loaded with directly back to Canada.
You are NOT allowed to pick up and deliver within continental USA that is called "interstating" and is totally illegal,not only that but you CANNOT even drop your empty trailer,pick up another one and deliver it to some terminal for a load to be taken by someone else!!!!
This is something I think potential drivers don't realise that its not going to be down to the USA and drive about for a week or two "tramping",its down to the USA tip the load,go get loaded again and back to somewhere in Canada!!

In years past it was illegal to do this in Europe it was called cabotage, same sort of thing in the states. Now most of Europe is in the EU you can do it but not outside of it.
