Has anyone heard anything about a possible DEF shortage?

Thanks Banks, It's my understanding we can't run these trucks without it is that correct? That would not be good if it became scarce.

Yesterday a trucker called into a radio show I listen to and said he had heard of a possible DEF shortage in the near future. Has anyone else heard this?

Trucking companies and COVID Vaccine

Hi folks! Haven't participated in any discussion for a very long time. I left trucking a few years back but returned shortly thereafter. A long story that doesn't need telling. I haven't participitated in any discussions for a long time but read occasionally especially since covid became a part of our lives. I'm popping in now to say i appreciate this thread and hope Brett, you will leave it, and others similar to it, up because i agree that open respectful discussion, and the free exchange of ideas is imperative to a healthy society. This was the first place i came to over a year ago when this first hit the scene and was thankful for Bretts informative posts, usually accompanied by his research sources, as well as other peoples posts because it let me know I wasn't the only one questioning the narrative. I felt intuitively that something wasn't right and have since spent a lot of time most every day paying attention to current events and I am very concerned with the direction our country is headed. Thank you to all posters and thank you Brett for leaving this post up and future posts of this type. I believe it's good to have such discussions on the Trucking Truth site because we are truckers or soon to be and there are wise, intelligent people on this site who have a lot to offer in the way of ideas and information that might not have been considered or discovered otherwise. And it might be the only place for some of us out here on the road to get/have this kind of discussion.

Offered a dedicated route any insight appreciated

Yeah I considered all those factors you guys mentioned but the real clincher for me is I enjoy what I'm doing now why mess with that. Thanks for the responses. Be safe out there old school. And Brett I bet you got some great ridin' in this winter.

What I know so far is 90% drop and hook on the pick up end 50% drop/ live unload on drop end. Approx. 2500 to 3000 miles per week and no loading or unloading. Possibly home more often but that's not a big issue for me. I'm aware NE miles/ traffic are tougher and really like otr where most trips are 3 to 4 days just all day rolling along. Living in NH I've encountered some of the traffic on my way to hometime and it's not pretty. My other concern is night driving. I for the most part can run daytime hours otr. If this position requires a lot of night driving or mostly erratic hours then it's not for me. Honestly don't think I want to make any changes right now.

Hi folks. Long time. Back at Stevens about 6 weeks solo again and they offered me a New England regional Kraft dedicated job today at .40 cpm. 7cpm more than current pay. Any insight into such a position would be greatly appreciated.

Making another go of it

Rehired back at Stevens. Long story short...things didn't go as hoped back home and not finishing my commitment didn't sit right with me. Hopefully I can grow to tough it through the lonely times this time.

I'm out...OTR not for me.

Yeah it would be nice to get paid to play. That's not what influenced my decision though.

Thanks Daniel and MM. And Old School I agree with you whole heartedly about work being a part of mans purpose in life and work that animates you and gives you purpose putting it on a spiritual level. I'm not sure what that is for me but I also learned that it's not so much the job I have but the job I do that makes the man. I did once have the fortunate opportunity to take someone for a paid guided hike and thought man I'd love to figure out how to make this a regular living. I guy I met a couple years ago comes to my area in my home state every summer from Manhattan and hires a hiking guide because he's not comfortable going alone and his guide that summer had to bail due to family emergency. He asked if I'd take him and he said he'd pay me and I told him he didn't have to pay me but after much insistance I relented. I Told him I'd take him and he could pay me what he wanted after the hike. After a nice 8 hour hike with several views of the lake and not too technical terrain and a mountain top snack he told me he had the best hike he'd been on and payed the $250 he had planned to pay intially.

I drove for Stevens. I am aware of their northeast regional but that didn't interest me either. I was hired 4/5/17. Including training and just over 90 days solo almost 6 months. Not particularly interested in driving at all. Just don't think it's for me in any capacity. Especially OTR. Like I said, I was wrong. Didn't know myself as well as I thought I did. If I have hurt my chances for other driving opportunities should I change my mind then that's the choice I live with and I will make do. It's a good career for the person with the right personality and there is plenty of great oppotunities and one could make a good living at it.
