Does anyone know why many customers are so reluctant to sign detention stamps? I swear some of them react as though you were trying to get them to sign away their first-born child.

Hahahha. just write RTS (Refused to sign). if you know their name... write Mark RTS or whatever.

Most security people dont even work for company, they are contracted out. They are afraid they will be responsible for something.

Obviously, detention can be expensive. Usually it's like $50/hr. My last trip I was paid $140 and I've been paid as much $300 for waiting 5 hours and threatening to cancel the load.

For those of me that have never heard of them, what is a detention stamp? I assume having to do with detention (duh haha) but don't recall ever reading anything about them here before.

Prime wants the detention stamp used on every stop and it lists the load number, date of appointment, time of arrival, time of departure and seal number.

If you don't use ut our FMs pay a fine.

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.

That's the first I've heard of that. I've used my stamp maybe 10 times in the whole time I've been with Prime. Maybe it's a reefer thing.

I only pull out the stamp when a customer goes excessively beyond the appt time or window.

I've never heard of the fine either. I usually don't put one on unless the customer took so long I thought I may be due detention pay.

My FM sent out a fleet msg during my second week telling her drivers to use stamp because she gets fined if they're not used. My trainer never used one so I didn't either until I got that msg. Fleet-specific??? That doesn't seem to make sense though. We have a mystery.
