We might deadhead 1,000 miles for a 300-mile load. You look at the miles and the total revenue, and you make a business decision on that. Can you make money on that load?

It has to moo, walk on, ride, then walk off at the end of the trail. Fuel $+.50/ loaded mile

Knowing what your operating cost is per mile ... Just because a load has a good "loaded" per mile rate ..doesn't make it a good load.

That is kind of an open ended question. One, it would depend on your niche, whether you are leased or completely independent etc. I have taken loads for a customer out of FL to Winnipeg ...
