Class 9 Materials. USA vs Canada

Please, someone in the know, tell me if my understanding is correct or not. So, as a USA CDL-A licensed driver, I can haul a Class 9 material in the US with no placard and no hazmat endorsment. I'm pretty sure that is correct. But let's say the load originates in Canada, where placards for class 9 materials are required. What are the requirements for the driver to legally haul the load in Canada? I'm pretty sure more is required than a vanilla CDL, I'm just not sure what.

Headset??

I have a Blue Parrot 250XT+. I've had it for a few years, bought it refurbished off of Walmart's site. People hear me fine and I hear them fine. It has 21 hour talk time and came with a wall and car charger. Both have long cables, so I can use it while it's charging. I love this headset and will eventually upgrade to a newer Blue Parrot.

Most drivers I know have a version of the Blue Parrot. I've had mine over 2 years and still works great. Noise cancelling is top shelf. Worth every penny imho.

Newbie with Special Home Circumstance

Bless you John and your family. So sorry for what your wife has to endure...

Try smaller trucking companies in your area. Your chances of getting local are much better. I lucked out by being at the right place at the right time. There is hope...

A couple questions for experienced drivers

I can't say too much on here for fear of loosing my job. Suffice it to say I will be looking for new employment. It's a small company. The "CEO" is also the head dispatcher dm. I can't believe there are companies like this still. Sigh... It was a decent trailer but the shipper yard jockey slammed the dock and caused the damage. Then they continued to load the trailer. I was told to bring it back to our terminal. I'm sure I've already said enough to get me fired, but I will never do this again..period.

A couple questions for experienced drivers

1). On a dry van with 4 hinges on each door, how many broken hinges on one side is acceptable before trailer is oos?

2). If traveling down the road with 3 out of 4 hinges broken and the last on breaks, will the latch still hold the door, or will it be come a flying lethal weapon? We're talking the older style knuckle type latches.. one per door

Like these

Thanks, guzinta

Is this mean??

Hahhah. A friend of mine did it in TNT at a walmart. They put her in a door next to a pole. As so was backing she told the trainer I need to go left more .. he told her to stay on the line. He insisted. She went back slowly and bumped the pole and stopped. "I'm touching the pole now can I pull up and go over". He told her no and after arguing she threw up her hands and went in reverse.

The door came crashing down. He said "wow you were right. I couldn't see that from this seat and angle"

They didn't stay teaming very long.. and I thought of her when I got this message

He was probably one of those three!! smile.gif
