Are you going from White plains to Brooklyn then back to the Bronx? Wouldn't it make sense to go white plains, Bronx, Brooklyn?

It was a preloaded trailer so I didn't have any choice in the way it was stacked, but now that you mention it, yes it would make more sense to go to Bronx before Brooklyn. I'm pretty sure the load is stacked in such a way that I can switch the two stops.

Ha! Yeah well as far as I'm concerned, anything within a 50 mile radius of NYC...... might as well be NYC. OK, so 4 stops

I hope you can reach ur destination via 476/ridge pike in conshy. And not i76. Rough time ouch. Though, G-town would have more insight as a driver.

I grew up near conshy in Gulph mills. Cant wait for updates! Good luck!

Yes I'll likely stay at either the Frystown flying j or Hamburg Loves tomorrow, then drop down 476 from Allentown late mon evening and stay at the rcvr. Untarped, unstrapped, full clock and ready to go when someone shows up.

Right place at the wrong time lol.

I originally put in to be home over the holiday weekend. The plan was to be home 2 days ago. They had me all set up for that.

A week or so ago I came down with a growing toothache. So in order to see my dentist, I had to postpone home time until next week. That threw the pre-plan out of whack, and this is the load they came up with to get me home.

On top of that, unbeknownst to my dispatcher , the shipper surprised us by adding the Brooklyn stop. That wasn't part of the original dispatch.

To be fair, my dispatcher offered to try and find me something else. But I said I'll give it a shot with the understanding that it may not all happen in one day. Worst case, I'll have to finish the drop Wednesday morning, and I can still make it home in time for my dentist appt.

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.

Dispatcher:

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.
