   Well, not really. Reefers were paid on mileage, loaded or empty, NOT on per diem. That's why Western reefer owners like SFRD and PFE had agents in every eastern city, to "encourage" the yardmasters to move empty reefers back west. With no per diem to pay, they would otherwise have been in no hurry.
