    Do folks really truck coal any longer? I would have thought this was a rail-only freight and that local small-load delivery was dead.

      Your comment makes me wonder,,,,where are you from? I live in KY, and all you see are coal trucks, EVERYWHERE!!!! My husband owns his own coal truck, and when it’s good it’s good, and when it’s bad, it still pays the bills just fine. He usually makes 1,300 to 1,400 a day, and usually spends around 400 a day on fuel, Pretty good living as far as I am concerned.

    Tough class…. I hope they figured it out… seems like everyone has tried this class of business and NOT made any money…

    WOW – in Ohio – Coal (in a semi-good economy) is alive and well!! Suffering a bit now as plants don’t need to make power – no industry to use it!! But owner-operators are plentiful in Ohio!!

    It’s like the standard markets and cement mixers, on and off again, they go in, usually too cheap, get killed, then reel back, only to jump back in with the new management. At one time, State Farm was writing them in the Birmingham, AL, area, so why not Progressive.

    Oh yes, they specifically excluded the class previously, I wonder why.

    And I note that they are also venturing into KY, how fortuitous. Very interesting, their choice of territory.
    Should be a quick foray into the coal arena.
