When the shipper makes me wait 7 hours to get loaded because they order 100 trucks a day but only have one forklift. Cmon man! Buy your own trucks and deliver this stuff yourself. And then they will have 20 forklifts.

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.

When drivers with long boxes who are able to back up but are too lazy to do so and take all the pull through spots.

So are you saying guys that pull doubles cant back ? I knew it!rofl-3.gif

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

Just giving ya a hard time. Fed ex pulling doubles was running his mouth on CB the other day and someone laid into him calling him a part time trucker, asked if he got sent home from a major carrier so he went to fedex because they'd only make him drive straight and called him a fake a** trucker. I definitely wouldn't be able to backup doubles. I Can only imagine how difficult it is to back up a set.

A guy at a truck stop said something similar to me.

I have tried to back one a few times in my yard and can not figure it out and stopped trying before I damage something. When ever I see someone do it i make sure to give them a thumbs up

I actually thinking about this the other day. Was thinking it would in the case of doubles be "away from the trouble" instead of "towards the trouble" on a straight back? Or am I off.

I think you are correct, the additional pivot point reverses direction yet again. I can imagine the additional length can make it a pain to get it right without practice though. I worked in a furniture warehouse with a guy that pulled "trailers" on a tugger. He was able to back an isle pulling doubles (think football field length) without trouble. He admired the more experienced guy that could do the same with tripled though and never dared to try it himself.

Dm:

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.
