So starting swift as a solo driver. Came from using peoplenet, need to learn the start to end macros for QC. Orentation was absolutely useless as far as teaching how to use it. So please if anyone can help I would seriously appreciate it.im looking for the proper checklist, how to log pre trip all the way to dropping off the trailer.

I don't actually have the time to type it all out right now but I will tell you. Literally thousands of Swift rookie drivers figure it out in the first month or so.

Or not...LOL!

The easiest way to remember the macros is that the 1st 6 macros are all trip related: from 1 (Arrived at Shipper) to 6 (Empty Call). Pre-trip is 32. The rest you just come across when you need em.

Shipper:

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.

I assumed it was a bunch of stuff. I was was just hoping someone could run a list by me or direct me to a place with the info. I was trying to avoid ****ing off driver leaders. Haha

I'm doing this from memory, it might not be correct. You should have a driver handbook. Look in the back several pages.

1 arrive at shipper 2 loaded (L-call) 4 arrive at final destination 5 empty/available

The numbers may be off a bit. 3 is maybe a delivery stop. 4 might be "done at stop" then the ones I wrote above would be 5 & 6.

Good luck.

To help Error out. The load macros are in pairs. 1. Arrived shipper 2. Department shipper (loaded)

3. Additional stop arrive 4. Additional stop depart

5. Final destination arrive 6. Final destination depart (empty)

If you do one you'll have to do the other.

Additional 22. Running late. (If you use this correctly you'll never be officially late)

9. Accept/Decline next load if you're not using the app.

30. Check for available loads if you don't have one pre-scheduleday

Those should cover the basics.

MAC32 is also one you should send every day at the end of your driving shift; post trip inspection.

Damion during orientation they should have issued you a small ring binder with laminated pages, on one of the first pages the load cycle is explained and aligned with Macros 1-6. There should also be another page listing frequently used Macros and a basic description.

Good luck.
