Has anyone had any problems with the company when taking the TPP over 24 months and contacting your prior customers after one year?  Technically, the non-compete is only for 12 months but I can see TC making life miserable with the remaining TPP…Continue

Has Milewise been introduced in any states yet?  If so, exactly how does it work?  Is there a monthly flat rate and then so many cents per mile?  Is anyone using it?
