I have always kept myself busy reading most articles and i find every bit, pains, joys, pleasure to be informative and interesting. I just want to start my application with Roehl and want to know which of the campuses is better Marshfield or Appleton. I will be driving down since it is 5-7 hours from Indianapolis. And what challenges should i be expecting as i have never driven a truck or manual car before? I am an african and also love big rigs.

I went through Marshfield, albeit many years ago. In fact that was their only choice at the time. I would go there because it is the home office and you will have a chance to meet the big boss’s. Aside from that aspect, the standard should be the same.

They have a terminal in Gary, which is just up the road from you. Gary is also the nicest terminal in the company. You will receive good training no matter where you go. I highly recommend them.

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.

They’re both good. I went to appleton and it is a newer terminal and cleaner but not as many people there. Marshfield has the big office and it is the corporate home. Really doesn’t matter which one you go to. I’m from Indy too and it is a good company to go to. I definitely recommend it.

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.

Last I knew Roehl gave you 5 days after a year of service. Some Fleet managers might give you an extra day or two unpaid...but it’s highly unlikely you would get a month.

Fleet Manager:

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.
