When you are able to build a relationship with companies that you're consistently delivering to, you start to enjoy the work you do.
They want you to have family time.
They work hard and diligent on the drivers requests and needs.
I am suppose to be home every weekend and I get home every weekend.
In emergencies they go above and beyond to get the driver where he or she needs to be.
When I worked with bigger companies, if you asked off you were lucky if you got home.
