Did you live unload at Solvay? That is a sort of challenging back.

Yes it is. Usually we drop in Lot "B" but yesterday we had to drop across the street in Lot "C" I've been lucky so far I haven't had too much of an issue backing the trailer into a slot. Though the other day I was backing in and I kept thinking that I was crooked when in fact it was the trailer next to me was. I pulled up twice trying to get myself straight.

I haven’t had to live unload there yet, but I see a lot of trucks backing in with scars on the right front from that guardrail. Lol.

Watch out for the mud hole in front of the building as you are leaving. I hit it idling in 3rd the other day and everything in my overhead bins bounced out. Holy crap!

We are lucky since we are local we just drop loaded ones and hook up the empties and head out no live unload. Though we have gone in and dropped but there were no empty trailers to take back to our yard.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.
