I can't find anything in the Swift driver, company handbook or online. So I'll ask here.

Anyone know what Swift's policy is on putting stickers/decals on their trucks? I want to put Army Veteran stickers on the driver and passenger side. They're not too big. Pic is attached.

If you talk to your DM they will probably make one for your truck. They had some done up for veteran's day last year.

I know some company drivers put decals on their truck, mainly the side window. Not sure if it is actually allowed but your DM can tell you.

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.

DOT DOES NOT allow on front windshield. When I got my first truck, the lady who had before had "Pink Kitty" on the windshield, on the dash, on the cabinet doors etc. What a pain it was to take all of them off.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Raptor, I'm surprised you didn't just adopt the nickname for yourself. Lol

I'm curious how you know the truck was driven by a lady before you?

I remember "Special K," one of our female members from years ago. She drove for Swift and had "Hello Kitty" stickers all over her white tractor. It was the craziest looking thing!

I tried to search and find a picture of it, but came up empty handed. It must have been in the "old forum format." She drove for a little while, and then became an office employee at Swift working with new drivers coming in. Here's a link to a thread where one of our new drivers met her during orientation.
