My last load was some work clothes and shirts and another was blankets, towels and sheets. Took me about 4 hours to complete!

Sorry! I'm being silly and thought I'd throw something in here

Delivered a two stop trailer this morning. Picked up a 28,000 lb preloaded trailer full of aluminum trim coil on the 9th in Newark, NJ. Newark has now been elevated to the #1 position of "Worst Streets I've Driven On", replacing Detroit, which had held the top spot since.....forever. Most dirt logging roads are much smoother than what I lived through in Newark! My first stop was in Knoxville, with the final in Nashville. About 1,000 total miles.

Last load delivered this afternoon. I got loaded with 15,000 lbs of plastic packaging this morning in Antioch, TN. Dragged it north to drop at the consignee in Columbus, OH. 410 total miles.


The customer the freight is being delivered to. Also referred to as "the receiver". The shipper is the customer that is shipping the goods, the consignee is the customer receiving the goods.

Nice miles. I am surprised the onions can be exposed like that.

Nice miles. I am surprised the onions can be exposed like that.

We're required to leave the tarps somewhat open for ventilation, only closing the tarps if it rains. The onions will either begin to cook or will start to mildew if we seal them in for too long. They certainly aren't my favorite things to haul. Quite a pain, actually.

Thanks for the reply. I am sure those good miles helped ease the kind of load it was lol....

I don't plan on being a flat bedder, but I am learning everyday...
