Alright, may be a dumb question but, what are the macro codes for the prime terminals? I believe prislc? But I'll be heading to Springfield soon, and my apu can finally be fixed!! 😂 Hotel stays are expensive especially when I have to wait to get reimbursed.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

APU:

Auxiliary Power Unit

On tractor trailers, and APU is a small diesel engine that powers a heat and air conditioning unit while charging the truck's main batteries at the same time. This allows the driver to remain comfortable in the cab and have access to electric power without running the main truck engine.

Having an APU helps save money in fuel costs and saves wear and tear on the main engine, though they tend to be expensive to install and maintain. Therefore only a very small percentage of the trucks on the road today come equipped with an APU.

Prislc is prime Salt Lake City. Pripit is Pittston Prispr (just as guess as I haven't been to Springfield yet) is Springfield?

Alternatively you can just do an address search for prime springfield and it'll pops up.

P.s anyone in SLC tonight come say hi to me.

Tell your FM to put enough money on your card to write a comcheck for the hotel. Then make sure you scan it or email it to the FM. No need for out of pocket.

I did it at the Ramada in both Sprimo a d SLC

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.

Thanks everyone!

I'll definitely remember that for next time. Because I killed my savings account 😂 Doesn't help the quote I got on the room went up 40 bucks after 3 hours. Maybe since it was the last room? Not sure but, way too expensive to be paying out of pocket especially when some of the hotels are pricey

Did you get a quote online, then go back later to the same site and get another quote $40 higher?

If so, that's a tactic companies use to jack up the price after seeing you've came back to grab that low quote you got earlier. Somehow they see your search history, cache, or cookies or something. Happens to me when I try to book a hotel or plane flight.

Before going back to a site, clear cache or cookies so they can't do it to ya.
