10000 miles in a month some people could do that in reverse

Some months I would get over that, other months, just under. With refrigeration, it sometimes depends on the shipper and receiver. With e-logs, you can't adjust your start time (NOT admitting to anything) like you can with paper logs.



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.


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.

That is so true. I am loaded with Corn Gluten, and they took a sample, while they were loading me. IT DIDN'T MAKE IT. I am "out of hours" on my 14, and am tired. I might have to dump the load, a reload. It takes about an hour to load.

They are retesting the sample now.

Hey that line I've done more miles in reverse than anyone forward, that's me. Where's the guy that had an airline for an ambilical cord. Gladhand is a wave, goodtimes no doubt. Or do like bj mckay and play smokeybear a game of football over a speeding ticket. Heads I win, tails you lose. Where have all the goodtimes gone. That's what I had across my hood. "Goodtimes"
