Thought I would share some pictures and a few words of thanks to those drivers who primarily deliver to grocery stores. See the shelves at my local Aldi and the Performance Food Service truck in the parking lot below:

Thanks, Rob T., Yuuyo Y., and Kearsey. I'm sure I've missed many of the grocery store delivery drivers.

Ditto!

It's probably why G-town has been quiet on TT. He's been very busy at the Wal-mart DC making them wheels turn!

Thank you but It takes all of us to get this done. While the drivers delivering to the stores are being praised by many we can't forget the OTR drivers supplying our DC's and even the production employees that have likely needed to work additional hours so we can continue having product to move. In my opinion our warehouse employees deserve the most praise. As a driver theres only so much that can fit in my trailer. The warehouse staff at my DC is usually done picking orders by 4am. They were still finishing up at 10am monday! We have many guys working 18 hours a day to help us do our jobs. They're making great money but they're earning every bit of it. In the end this requires many different people playing different roles for it to work. I heard a rumor at the meat counter when I went to my local store that they've discontinued telling in-store staff what time they are getting their delivery to prevent people from snatching up everything we bring and hoarding it. We received a voicemail from our VP telling us we still need to abide by the 30 minute and 10 hour rule but the 11/14 and 70 do not apply. They will also not hesitate to pull us off a load and send us home if we appear fatigued or tired in any way and encouraged us to keep an eye on each other. That makes me quite happy to know that despite the workload safety is still #1 priority.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I have never seen this much milk being delivered before. We generally have between 18-20 loaded trailers delivered Per day. The last couple days we have seen up to 40 loads. Very happy to be able to work still.

Oh don't get it twisted; the only grocery store deliveries I do are for delis they might have or express food places within them like Big Bowl
