Tomorrow I'm delivering to a JCPenney store, which has a real strict appointment time. I was told if I'm even a minute late, it's considered a service failure. My DBL kept thanking me for doing the delivery, so not sure if it's some type or favor or what. confused.gif

Since I'm picking up the trailer around 3-4am, i should have more than enough time to get to the store even a little early assuming everything goes as planned. I shouldn't have to worry much about traffic since it'll be early morning.

I don't have to worry about dropping an empty like usual, I'll bobtail from our yard which is only 10 miles from there warehouse, I'll pick up the loaded trailer and drive to one of their stores which I have to unload myself with a pallet jack. Afterwards I'll have to load up any return pallets and take the trailer back to the same warehouse.

It should be an interesting load or not. rofl-1.gif

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

Do you get paid for the unloading?

Atleast you have a pallet jack. Could've stacked it all on the floor and made you palletize it. Let us know how it goes.

I'm honestly not sure, I believe I will if I'm not mistaking. Schneider has an option on our e-logs for loading and u loading.

I used to do that when I worked at a Family Dollar warehouse, terrible. Two people would have to hand unload 30,000 pounds of boxes and put them on pallets. Then we had to hand wrap it, as they didn't have the thing that makes wrapping plastic easier and faster.
