6 vehicles and 7 drivers have made 112 crossings to date.

Withing the United States, they have logged 67,355 safe and incident free miles

  • ?38,156 Southern Border States (CA and TX only)

  • Eagle Pass Texas – 18 crossings
  • Laredo Texas World Trade Bridge – 8 crossings
  • Calexico California – 5 crossings

MILES TRAVELED BY STATE

The mileage traveled by state for these carriers reveals a pattern that I suggested sometime ago and refutes the claim of opponents that these carriers will be running willy nilly throughout the United States.

  • California – 18, 949 miles
  • Texas – 19,207 miles
  • Alabama – 4,243
  • Arkansas –  950
  • Florida – 8,147

  • South Carolina – 1,126
  • Tennessee – 368

All drivers participating have valid and active Federal CDL’s and all participating carriers have valid and active insurance.
