I'm currently about a half hour outside Topeka, KS, with a 7am delivery appointment. Won't have time for a full 10, but if I do the 8 in sleeper (4h left on the 14), deliver, then stop somewhere for 2h sleeper will that give me a full clock to work with tomorrow? I didn't take into account my shift from MST to CST or I'd have time for a 10

At the end of the 8, you'll have exactly what you had on your clocks when you started the 8. After the 2, you'll have a full day, MINUS whatever you do between the end of the 8, and the start of the 2.

I hope that makes sense

If u take 8 u get back what u had left if you have run your 11 out u won’t have anything. Does that make sense.?

I've still got time on my 11 as well (3:30). I just need some time back sooner in order to be on time, Donna.

That makes perfect sense, Chris, thanks!

Just before the 3:30 is up take a 2 hour off duty. I usually do that while I’m getting unloaded and then u will get your 11 minus what u drove.

This would be really useful of Schneider allowed this, since I was assigned a load today where they knew I couldn't make the appointment time before assigning it to me due to my next available time. So I arrived an hour late and had to wait 5 hours for a dock door, the load is going to Chesapeake Virginia where there is basically no truck parking especially this late, so with 6 hours left on my 14 going to take my full 10 hour break here in order to make my appointment time by 9:45 in the morning. I already have a pre-assignment for tomorrow which I'm probably not going to make the appointment time due to being delayed here or if I do it'll be close.

Actually I didn't realize my next pre-assignment picking up tomorrow morning has a whole extra day to make the delivery, either I misread it the first time or Schneider was already on point updating it. confused.gifrofl-3.gif

So y’all aren’t allowed to do 8/2 splits?

Nope, although legal to do. Schneider doesn't allow it, I spoke to my dispatcher about it not to long ago.

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.
