Kind of sounds shady about detention. Only if loaded, 10 hour max per 24 for billing, and only after 12 hours of sitting? Does anyone have any experience with pneumatic hauling like this? Is this industry standard?

So if you sit 4 3 days waiting to deliver you only get paid 30 hrs. No detention if you need to wait to load.

Sounds like a good way to lose you ass sitting still.

Due to inclement weather a well can be shut down.... So if a truck is loaded and has to wait and the weather is bad.... This would be why we have the detention rule...Or if a well guess down in general. NOBODY HAS HAD TO SIT AND DRIVERS ARE DOING AT LEAST 3 LOADS A DAY.

YOU GUYS KILL ME WITH THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS.

From what I understand oilfield had great detention rates and pay then came the oversuppply of trucks seeking a buck and the oil bust. Between the two the oilfield companies figured they could lower the rate and cut the pay.

3 loads a day? That's over 800 miles/day on your shortest run. Somebody's not running legal...

So out of all the mileage options I put on here you pick the ones that equate 800....Last I checked 50*3=.....100*3=....
Etc. From what you understand or from what you've experienced? One chimes in and the rest of you follow.... Either your interested or not. I don't have time to go back and forth with none of you.

If you have questions pick up the phone like most of the drivers that have viewed this post have done.

Have a good day.

It's says San Antonio area to Laredo so I took the George West miles. Sorry to have ruffled your feathers but when you say Laredo that's the what I'm going to base it off of, not the mileage chart.

We did it back when it was going good in PA and trucks made a killing on it we could only charge for 14 of the 24 hours in a day i think it has $75 a hour but the truck had to be on the well the hole time so make sure you stock up before going to well you could be there for 4 or 5 days at times Then they did the math and cut most of it out or found someone to do it for a lot less

Sounds about right. You know they are always looking for a cheap way out. The oil field hasn't starting booming yet but it's taking off. The guys I have on the Wells FINGERS CROSSED haven't had enough down town to leave. They've become dedicated to whatever well I'm on and they keep asking us to move on to the next.
