First: look at Google satellite view. (You can also get the satellite view in Trucker Path.) If you see trucks parked on that map you can guess it's ok, and you'll see the best place to pull in.

Second: after reading those reviews, get parked and go inside. The quickest management type to find is the checkout supervisor. They may not be actual Management, but they know what's going on and can help you out.

After choosing a W/M from the reviews, parking and asking at the checkouts, I've never been told to move along - just then or the next morning. It never hurts to spend money there, donch'a think?


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

In my home state of Arkansas a walmart in Searcy has clearance bars to keep trucks out but the Lonoke walmart has striped and painted parking lanes strictly for truck parking. The store in Lonoke closes from midnight till like 7am or something like that. But it seems different stores have different rules regarding trucks. Lonoke is off the I40 a bit east of Little Rock if anyone needs to use the walmart to park or shop.

The clearance bars are to keep trucks out of the front lots. The Pittston Pa store (near PrimeEast) has the bar protecting the front lot, parking in the back is okay.

Always call to ask permission. And not park on the perimeter of the dock setup area. Walmart docks are 24x7.

Just the same as idiots keep hitting the marked 11’ 6” overpasses.

Lewiston DC is my weekly delivery, sometimes twice a week. My favorite run.

I called the Walmart in Erie PA to ask permission when I-90 at the NY border with PA was shut down for snow. They seemed reluctant until I said I will leave nothing in your lot except tracks in the snow. The manager then said no problem, just park along the edge out of the way.


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.
