Prime Inc Springfield Business Journal

I delivered the tire shredding machines that will be used at Prime. They invested over 1/2 million bucks in the technology.

That's incredible! I like when companies do their part to help make the world a better place.

New Swift Driver Wanting to Switch

My best advice to you has already been said. Air out your grievances with your DM. That is your link to getting your problems fixed. Getting mad and leaving isn't going to fix your problem.

As far as the late deliveries go, a simple QC freeform message, or a macro 22, should inform them that you will be late and it should prevent you from getting a service failure. Again, a talk with your DM may help the situation. Swift is not a bad company. They get bad press from other drivers, but since I've been here I've been extremely happy with them. I had one issue, but it was partially my fault.

Hang in there, it will get better.

On the innovative front, we are about to open our own tire recycling facility. We used to send 60,000 tires to the dump. Now, we will repurpose those tires into mulch, outdoor pavement and other things that beautify the area.

There was also some info regarding their growth, but this to me is more interesting. I tried to look online, but I couldn't find anything about it. This sounds like an amazingly fantastic idea that will help the environment. This is coming from Darrel Hopkins, controller and director of leasing, according to Springfield Business Journal. I hope they come through with this, because it can do a lot of good.

Prime Upgrade Freeze

Rainy, are they still removing the seat in the lightweight trucks, or is that a request?

Prime Upgrade Freeze

The point of the matter is it's all hearsay. Until actions follow the words, I wouldn't believe any of it. Yes, they made changes to the program, but the sky isn't falling yet. Keep in your lane and keep on trucking.

Trapped!

He could have been new and afraid to back so tired and at night. i couldnt back at all. Because of it, i learned where every huge lot and Petro/TA in the country is

During orientation, I was told that Swift internationally sends us fuel stops mainly at TA/Petro because they are usually big lots with lots of parking, but the source also liked to joke around a lot. confused.gifrofl-3.gif

Swift Refrigerated

That's the terminal we were slated to be out of before we were offered a dedicated run. Our home terminal is Phoenix, but we park at Syracuse for home time.

If coming to Swift Denver

Isn't there a Walmart within rock throwing distance, or maybe I'm thinking of a different terminal? Take a left out of the terminal, curve/turn left and Walmart is off to the right, past the dirt lot. At least for a restroom. Maybe even parking but, they do say not to park in the dirt parking lot next to Walmart.

There is a Walmart literally on the way in. I've only been to Denver once, but I did see someone parked in the Walmart. I was wondering why until I pulled into the lot. There were trailers lined up behind other trailers all over the lot.

And Gladhand, I don't blame you. I usually get stuck fueling at those two terminals on the reg though, so I'm forced to at least pull in for a short time.

Trapped!

As a team driver, I can attest to what Rainy said. My wife and I have chosen spots in similar situations for a short nap.

I did have a situation where I was trapped one time when I was solo. There were two people parked perpendicular across from me outside the last spot. I tried for a few minutes to leave, but was completely unable to move. I knocked on his door and asked him to move because I couldn't get out. He looked like he spoke little English, but understood and moved forward, blocking other people down the way in the exact same fashion. There were open spots at the time of me leaving, but he'd rather be woken up again, I suppose.confused.gif
