Have you deadheaded out of Southern Florida lately because there isn’t enough freight to choose from?  When you take a Florida load, do you automatically add the d/h miles to it, knowing you will have to bounce somewhere to get a load?  Do you pass good loads going to Florida assuming you can’t get out?  Now, you may have to reconsider.

Recently, Jonathan Smith became our new Tampa agent.  He has been very busy the past few weeks making a lot of sales calls to create some new business for us throughout the Southern Florida area, and he is having some success.

I will say that he does not have an easy task.  Rates are very competitive in this area, and he will have to be aggressive to acquire new accounts.  The only thing we ask is to give him a chance.  Take a look at the Tampa board before you bounce north.  You may be able to save yourself some empty miles.

    I have loaded in FL several times but still think about the DH when taking a load there.
