Precious cargo indeed. You're looking at about 46,000 lbs worth of future beer cans!

I deliver to a roofing tar paper plant in greencastle pa. Every flatbed has always tarped the load. Never understood it since the rolls are outside on pallets in the weather. All the respect to you guys. That's a long process that I'll admire from the sidelines while unloading mine.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Turtle, where'd you pick those coils up? We usually got ours from Alcoa in TN or Malvern AR.

Notice all the salt on this tarp?

Underneath are two 23k coils of sheet aluminum. In addition to my tarp, each coil is double wrapped in plastic.

If it is double wrapped in plastic, shouldn’t it be double tarped as well. We don’t need our future beer cans getting contaminated.
