I love this crazy thread.

Well, this morning I delivered a load more ‘sweet’ than ‘strange’… 44,000lbs of a chemical scent that’s added to a popular detergent and fabric softer that makes them smell good. And in that quantity, it was a HAZMAT load (flammable)! That means if A=B and B=C, then when you are washing your clothes and adding fabric softener, you are doing such with a hazardous material! You’re welcome for that information! Happy New Year!


Hazardous Materials

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

One of the strangest loads I ever pulled was also one of the first. I picked up 6 pallets in Auburn, WA and took them all the way to Taylor, PA.

The punchline was, that's not where they were supposed to go. The shipper got their loads all bass ackwards. Those 6 pallets were supposed to go somewhere in CA.

On another load, I took a whole pallet of beer from San Francisco to Redding.

I think the smallest "point A to point B" load I've ever taken was 3 pallets of ice cream from Henderson, NV to Bellevue, WA.

You gotta wonder about these guys sometimes.


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.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
