besides time that you save at terminals, what is the other things you get when you stop at the terminals that we own?
You get a 10% bonus when taking things there, and there might be a fuel/repair discount, but it's not significant, and I'm not even sure if there is one.

FFC: i checked your routes... you're only hauling general merchandise, not glass. the way to make money is, when you're looking at a route, general merchandise is at the top of the screen in a drop down menu, and you have to select a different item to carry. general merchandise is ALWAYS the cheepest, so you should never be hauling it. This will help you out a ton.

Though, I'm still not making massive amounts of money after figuring it out!

Catch ya on the CB. Mrrrrp! Mrrrrp!

Ive made a lot of cross country trips (and by a lot i mean maybe 5 or 6 over 1500 miles, the longest being montgomery to purdhoe) and i have not made any real money. Stock seems to be doing well, maybe buying some stock would help make some money?

The money isn't so much in the long haul (especially if you have a slow truck) but in finding the highest price per mile. By following the profitable routes that Cheese (and otheres) find for us, you can make money, not just pay for gas and repairs. (avoiding tickets is also key to making money.) not that i'm rolling in the Trukz-buckz or anything, but this is what's working for me

ive moved into doing shorter routes lately and ive noticed an increase in money for sure.

Anyone refuel depending on what the price of Gas is at the time?
