My fleet manager was awesome ! Her due date was November 23 and her induce date was December 2. He kept me in the south the whole time so if I needed to come home I would be able to. Once we made it close to induce time, he had me home on the 30th. He has texted several times to make sure baby and mom were doing good. I’m very impressed with Prime and my fm . They completely understood how important this was to me. I work for a mega company but I feel important in that company.

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.

I just want to point something out about Donna's statement and her experience. She's telling us how awesome her driver manager and her company are. That's great. What I see here is that Donna is an awesome driver - a great asset to the team at Prime.

Everybody I've ever seen have experiences like hers have built a reputation for themselves by diligently taking care of their business. Their company loves them and will do just about anything for them. The folks I've seen complaining vehemently about how bad their company is are typically the total opposite of what Donna is. They don't produce good results; they lay blame on others, and they're just difficult to work with. They never see anything they need to change about themselves other than the company they drive for.

Donna, congratulations on the new grandchild! Also let me congratulate you on being the best of the best out here. I've never met you, but I know by this post that you are highly valued by the folks at Prime. Keep it up!

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices
