My company has a deal with Loves and we get 60 free showers a month. However it is his truck so his points. Believe you will get points fast once you start. If you run hard you will fuel every other day.

I would love 60 showers a month..... 3/4 of them would be used for the private toilet.

60 a month?

Who has time to shower twice a day?

Do you carry your own tin tub and bucket to fill it with whatever hot water you can find? rofl-1.gif

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

The only logic I can see other than a private bathroom is that with so many we can offer them to drivers in need as a recruitment aid. However if you see me and need a shower I will gladly give you a credit.

I used to let trainees use their cards if they were the one on duty, but I had too many quit and end up leaving me having to pay for showers on occasion, so I stopped doing that. The last few days, I'd let them use their card so they'd have some shower credits. We generally don't go under a half a tank, unless in a remote area with no truck stop, so if their doing 500 miles a day, then generally they're fueling every day so they should be fine going solo.

Oh yes. That email was sent quickly. I did tell him that I asked some people that are obviously smarter than me and they set me straight and I apologized. He was very gracious in his response. So I sent him an exotic dancer and an edible bouquet. Just kidding.....those bouquets are expensive. I can tell I’m going to get along with this kid. I’m old enough to be his dad. LOL

I didn't get my Fuel card from my company until I finished the "In Cab" Training with my trainer and I moved into my own tractor and the second pahase of training. My trainer would always check the block for "Team Shower" so I was covered until I started pumping my own fuel and getting the points. I did pick up the affinity cards for the various truck stops so I would get the points for what I spent inside but no credit for the fuel till I started filling my own tractor on the road. Lately I've only been filling up at the terminal because I've been getting short runs mile wise that I can get there and back with the fuel onboard I usually get back to the terminal with a quarter left on the gauge.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
