Rainy said: "Look for Prime drivers at truck stops and customers who have extra. Some will just give them to you cause they have like 30 hanging off the back of their cab. Hoarders!"

I don't know exactly why, but I just spent 15 minutes laughing at Rainy's comment about hoarders.

Interstate Warehouse is HORRIBLE about that. I was getting push back by my FM so I went in and asked about getting my locks back. They had to get a dock worker manager, who then had to get approval from the warehouse manager, who had to witness and reseal the trailer. THE TRAILER WAS IN THE DAMN DOOR !! To top it off, Prime frowns upon the use of the normal "available at fine truck stops near you" version of load bars and almost "mandates" the use of the more expensive "Jack style" load bars.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

Fm:

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.

If any Prime drivers from here on TT see me at a truck stop for a meet-and-greet, I’ll give you any spare locks I may be carrying behind my cab. I only use straps, so I’ll gladly part with any for those that are needy at the time.

It may be strange but I have never had to use a load lock or strap. I have 4 new straps just in case and haven't gotten any load locks yet. I haven't had a need for either one yet...lucky me! I did have one shipper required me to pre weight my empty truck and logistics called to tell me I needed straps but the shipper said I didnt need them for my load, I do believe it was going to Hershey strangely enough.

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.
