Driving opportunities like this make me happy I have a husband who is fine with me being gone all the time and a daughter who is grown. It's really a lucky situation to be in.

Everything starts with the first step... Which is the hardest one. For the record, I did not get here by luck alone. I am literally just past two years of experience driving a big rig. My first year got me here.

Here is the key: I know what it takes to drive a big truck on this level of the industry. Have confidence in yourselves and always... Always drive with humility and care.

Oh, I know the driving part isn't lucky. I'm meaning that my husband is supportive and is tolerant of me having a schedule that keeps me out of the house for long periods of time.

Question, why is hazmat needed for hauling stage gear?

Phil

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Touring "season" runs from Jan. to Nov. For the majority of acts. There are also gaps between tours that range from a few days to a few weeks. We also typically start a tour in Nashville.

So, In order to keep the cash flowing we have the option of running truck load. It is Averitt policy that all truck load drivers must have hazmat. This also gives our FM's another tool to get the OTL drivers who's domicile is hundreds of miles from Nashville there by having access to more loads.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

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.

OWI:

Operating While Intoxicated

Yeah, I failed horribly at trying to draw a comparison. 👍🏻

Hay Phillip!

Rolling Thunder hasn't been on here in many years; Miss Miyoshi ended up going with Prime. Her Facebook link is in her profile.

I'm not aware of any recent Averitt guys on the forum, but I could be wrong. It would be in your best interest to start your own thread, with a title similar to: "Any Averitt Drivers With Intel?"

It seems you are a driver for them currently; yes?

Best wishes!
