There goes Sarah, stepping up like an old pro!

Errol, you can retire now :)

*p.s. regarding the Mac 30, if you get a nothing avail. Keep trying every 60 min. And when you do see something pop, don't debate on it for too long.

In lean times those loads can pop up on multiple screens and are first come first serve.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Ok so sent mac 30 . not eligible . sent mac 10 . can't use .called terminal .use mac 10 smh . I went back to mac 0 and left a really nice and apologetic message just saying all I would like is my next load so I could go to work . well I got a reply to that . thanks for your ambition but just sit and wait . smh and smh and smh

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I'm nowhere near a Swift truck right now, but there is a way to dig out a planner who may be able to help.

BTW, this question might be best to call your DM. As a new driver, even one new to Swift, you could learn something from their explanation.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
