Schneider doesn't let us use it. I've been stuck overnight too many times when I could have bobtailed home. Makes no sense to me and ****es me off.

Bobtail:

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

Wolding will under certain circumstances, and limits how often and how far you can go. I don't remember the limits right now, but it is discouraged.

Only if the shipper/receiver doesn’t allow overnight parking or a LEO asks you to move. We are restricted to 10 miles.

Shipper:

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.
