Well if you happen to break a leaf spring on your front axle and you are friends with my boss, I get to spend all day driving through this to bring you another truck and pick up the broken one. BTW we chained the front axle so it would not move and drove it onto the trailer. IMG_20151124_233430058.jpg

Fm:

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.

Loaded this today for delivery tomorrow. 19 sticks of 18" pipe, 25 pieces of 12" pipe and a mold for 60" pipe. concrete pipes loaded and chained eyes crosswise on flatbed trailer in winter snow When you haul different sized pipe you have to make sure that the cable you run from front to back actually touches all the pipe. Hence the chain across the cable to pull it down. concrete pipes loaded and chained eyes crosswise on flatbed trailer in winter snow

Most recent load is more structural steel, this time from Missouri to a job site in Texas. I was going to wash my truck this weekend, but there's no point now that I know it'll probably just get muddy again Monday morning.
