A couple months back a member that went by the fake name of "Todd Holmes" had stated how trucking companies need to get their truck and trailer colors to match. Today it just so happened mine did and I had some time to snag this pic. It sure made me want a cheeseburger! 0046812001552846409.jpg I read up on the companies social media policy and it primarily covered not using their name, which is why I crossed it out. A majority of our trailers are black with some sort of food on them although we do pull some that are all white with employees "helpful smiles" pictured. We also have some that are a tribute to our military and the major professional sports teams in the region as they're a sponsor to most of them.

Company is very sensitive to how they're viewed by the public and encourage us to even wash our truck and trailer 3 out of the 4 days we work at the onsite automated truck wash.

I was at Chariton yesterday :-)

Chariton didn't have any extra drivers available yesterday so 4 of our guys volunteered to run down there to pickup 4 trailers of bottled water and run it out to Lincoln NE where they were staging it among other products donating to flood relief. I was already out there running my route so I wouldn't have had hours left. I haven't been to the yard in Cherokee or Chariton yet. I'm sure I will eventually as we run Cherokee's GM out towards Cedar rapids and east and they run our stuff that goes in western MN such as Marshall. Cheaper for them to do it that way than have drivers laid over and push back the following days deliveries.
