Yep that shipper is like that on weekends. The driver took the wrong trailer with his dispatched paperwork lol.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Yeah the weather has been beautiful.. My truck, not so much. My trainee was driving in South Boston Friday afternoon during rush hour and we were sideswiped on our drivers side by a pickup. The pickups passenger side rear fender clipped the drivers side end cap on my front bumper ripping it off and taking the head light, turn signal, and fog light with it. He also sideswiped an SUV so I'm sure his insurance company is gonna love him.

My trainee is an excellent driver, but that sure shook her up. Got her calmed down and finally got an officer there. Of course no citation for her as she didn't do anything wrong. So the truck is at Tri State Truck Center in Shrewsbury with parts on order and we're holed up in a motel til at least Tuesday morning. Fun in Boston. Nothing towed and no injuries so it wasn't DOT reportable. Of course I had to grab my gloves and rip off some dangling plastic parts so we could drive away.

If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.. Goes the old Hee Haw song.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Ooh joy! Glad no one got hurt. Sounds like the pickup driver was a total impatient ass. Don't know what gets into people that they just can't wait to pull in front of us--makes no sense to me.
