OPERATING MONEY
 
 
Operating money for personal expenses of a minimum $800.00 to a maximum of $1,500.00 (cargo vans) and double that for dock high trucks. Your recruiter will evaluate your overall situation and decide what amount you will need. This can be cash or credit card or a combination of both. If you are cashless and credit cards are your only means, you will need to bring in the 3 most consecutive / recent statements showing your available balances. This is required so we know our freight will NOT be stranded on a highway because you have no operating capital until our load
advances begin.

 

CHECKING or SAVINGS ACCOUNT
 
 
This is used to deposit your wages and / or fuel advances. Go to your bank or credit union to open an account. Be sure to fill out the form to get a debit card. You can use the debit card for food,
fuel, snacks, or any purchases etc.

 

DEBIT CARD (COMDATA)
 
 
A debit card so you can make purchases with those funds easily. If you do not have a debit card, they are easy to get. Simply open up an account at any bank and request a debit card for the account. If you're completely unable to do this, you can get a re loadable card from Wal-Mart. You can obtain the details for this at any Wal-Mart customer service desk. We do direct deposit right into your personal or business account.

one heat source for your cargo unit, blankets, electric blankets for
sleeping gloves, boots and other cold weather gear.
