You have NO ONE, but yourself to blame for no “mic drop” or “popcorn” emote!!!

So.... where are they?

Actually I have some ideas in the works. Stay tuned.

LTL is a cake walk. It's also one of the best paying jobs out there and will get you home at least most nights. The downside is that it's painfully boring. It's like the trucking version of working on a production line. You're doing the same thing day after day. But some people love that.

Hey now we have 2 sets of legs to roll up and down and 6 extra lines to play with.

LTL:

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier

Well sure, the job seems spectacular if you immediately point out the most complex and fascinating part of your day!

I have uncles and cousins that spent decades working on production lines in the auto industry. My dad was a steel worker for 18 years. I could never wrap my head around how they could do it. Their lives were exactly like the movie GroundHog Day. They got up every single day of their lives for decades and did the exact same thing over and over again. My right eye is twitching now just from imagining that. If I didn't live in a one story house I would jump out the window right now.
