can be 1 hour early before a live unload appointment, but must dock, chock, slide, disconnect, pull forward and get to the office before the appointment or you are late.

If you have a drop and hook window, you cannot arrive even the 1 hour early, or it is counted as a service failure.

If you are late the new appointment is set for 24 hours.

Drop And Hook:

Drop and hook means the driver will drop one trailer and hook to another one.

In order to speed up the pickup and delivery process a driver may be instructed to drop their empty trailer and hook to one that is already loaded, or drop their loaded trailer and hook to one that is already empty. That way the driver will not have to wait for a trailer to be loaded or unloaded.

I get the automated message every load, they must really like me. Also here at my company we aren't even issued the stamp, even though I haul Prime trailers everywhere I go. Guessing our FMs aren't fined though since we're sub contracted to haul prime fright for prime.

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.

Yes, just joking. I know what a seal is, but thankfully don't have to mess with any of that mumbo-jumbo.

At west side, we don't use stamps, however, we are expected to write the load number, our truck number and driver ID as well as in and out times for bo5the shipper and consigned before we scan the bol using trans flow. That way our payroll department knows to look for the amount of detention in the contract for that load. If we do our part, the company knows to bill the customers for it. Makes it very simple since it's so easy to verify that we were at that location from our elogs.
