To me the individual pickles in plastic have a plastic flavor unfortunately.

Never heard of a pickle pouch except for something I dont think you're referring to


Thanks for that Rob! I don't know if I will ever be able to look a Pickle Pouch in the eye again!

Wednesday I delivered to a Walmart DC in Cheyenne I never got a pre-plan so I messaged my dispatcher and he called me shortly after wanting to explain the situation. After delivery in Cheyenne I usually go to Greeley or Fort Morgan Colorado and run meat loads usually East or the South. He told me the meat plants were closed over Easter for 3 days and they're just getting going again. He told me he had 10 drivers on his board waiting on loads to get processed. But I got a call early yesterday morning from the head load planner asking if I wanted to pick up and drop trailers to the slaughter houses. Not about to miss out on Miles. So I ran four trips picking up empties and dropping them at the plants. It wasn't a 600-mile day but at least they found something for me to do. After my last drop trailer in Greeley picked up an empty and Cheyenne and headed for Lexington Nebraska to another packing plant still got in 450 miles yesterday


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.
