So while doing my post-trip after a long day I found one of my drive tires blown out. I didn't notice it at all today and seen no damages this morning for my pre-trip. Just shows a post trip is important

Great job doing those pre and post trips. Its easy to skip out on your post trip after an exhausting day but it plays a part of being successful. By finding it during post trip you're able to get it repaired during your 10 hour break and you wont be stuck on the interstate waiting on roadside assistance.

Yeah, I didn't really feel like doing it tonight. But I got out and checked my tires and what not and almost didn't notice it. But I'm currently waiting for this guy to get here to replace it. So I'm glad I found it tonight and not tomorrow, no time wasted rofl-1.gif

During my training we did the pre-trip an hour and a half later I'm looking behind me and I see the Gators flying. I was freaking out thinking this was going to count against me. My trainer said don't sweat it we did our pretrip... stuff happens...

Container chassis decided to toss a chunk of retread while en-route the consignee. Never heard it, but I was on US61 heading into Dubuque, IA and there are some pretty rough patches. I always do an inter-trip after I get done with any loading / unloading. Discovered this little gem on the intertrip. It was on the right front inner, so I wouldn't have been likely to see it without actually checking. Pre-trip / inter-trip / post-trip inspections, and log them always. The couple minutes you spend are worth it.

Consignee:

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.
