Do the drivers on Walmart dedicated scan their paperwork like otr drivers do? My current student will be walmart dedicated out of New York when he upgrades.

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I recently ran a Walmart load to two stores and scanned the paper work the same way, including the extra sheet with proof of delivery of each pallet. But G-Town will be here soon! As he has way more experience in it.

Hey Big T...how the heck are yah? Thanks for checking in. Very cool for your student.

No need to scan the bills. He will need to get signatures on the seal card for each delivery and initials on the load map. The only thing he’ll need to scan is a CAT ticket when required ( infrequent, rare once he is familiar with backhauls). The DLs on the account will (should) review the process with him in detail.

Sounds like he’ll be running out of Johnstown NY, both reefer and dry. They cover Long Island stores, surburban NY north of the city. Make sure he understands to carefully review the trip sheet for directions on how-to safely access the store docks and not to rely on NaviGo. I’ve

Let him know he is welcome on the forum and that I will do my best to help him out.

All the best to you and your student. Peace.

A refrigerated trailer.

Yes Jamie, Walmart Surge is required to scan documents as typically done on an OTR type gig. Dedicated drivers assigned to a DC, do not need to scan any documents.

Thank you G-Town. Im doing well.

Correct he will be running out of Jonestown. Im doing most of his training and then I guess they are going to have him go with an experienced walmart driver for a couple days to get the account specific information. I've pulled one Walmart load in the last year. All my stuff goes in not out usually.

I’m glad Jonestown is training Newbies. It’s a good crew up there, where Danielsahn ran for almost a year.

Wasn’t sure, but they likely do what 7030 in Pottsville does, 2, sometimes 3 days training with an experienced driver and then solo. That will really help with learning how-to run his truck on the account.

Our paths may cross, I end up in Johnstown NY several times per year, and crossing paths at backhauls like Tropicana.

Safe travels to you both!
