At a pilot near Youngstown, OH. All these Schneider trailers taking up space. Looks like a great place to wait for the Great Pumpkin. I know at least some are loaded because I can see the seals. Just wondering what's up...repowers?

I've parked there multiple times, I think they lease space there. A lot of people complain because a lot of spots are taken by dropped trailers and usually multiple Schneider trucks because that is also a common place we fuel in the area. rofl-3.gif

My trainer and I were trying to figure out what was going on here. Thanks for clearing things up, Jaime.

Companies do have an agreement when you see a lot of their trailers sitting in a truck stop. On a couple of the apps I'm on , I see the guys complaining about this. But I'm sure the truck stop is compensated. My company also has spots we are able to drop trailers, yesterday I felt like a yard jockey.... got a call from my old dispatcher who was filling in on the weekend and asked me to pick up two trailers from a refrigerated shipper and drop them or we would have gotten charged a late fee. This guy I would do anything for and he compensated me for it without my asking. It made me late for my delivery today but he told me he took care of it and would have me routed on a good run tomorrow after my delivery.

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.

Dispatcher:

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.

I pulled my first non-orange trailer this weekend. Out of the WALMART distribution center in Wintersville, Ohio. Spent my whole weekend doing WalMart puddle jumps but it was interesting. My trailers were white and I have to say it took some getting used to. I think the orange trailers are higher visibility in my mirrors.

Funny I pulled a Walmart trailer out of that DC a few months ago doing a store delivery, two stops. It was weird pulling a Walmart trailer. rofl-3.gif

Thanks to Junkyard Dog for shedding more light on this topic.

Very familiar with Wintersville DC. Used to be one of my dedicated runs. Spent many a day/night at a little truck stop down the road from there...

Dedicated Run:

A driver or carrier who transports cargo between regular, prescribed routes. Normally it means a driver will be dedicated to working for one particular customer like Walmart or Home Depot and they will only haul freight for that customer. You'll often hear drivers say something like, "I'm on the Walmart dedicated account."
