Not sure what your hours are or how far away you from the Berkots DC off of Briggs in Joliet but I'll be there tomorrow for a drop and hook around 10 or so.

Drop And Hook:

Drop and hook means the driver will drop one trailer and hook to another one.

In order to speed up the pickup and delivery process a driver may be instructed to drop their empty trailer and hook to one that is already loaded, or drop their loaded trailer and hook to one that is already empty. That way the driver will not have to wait for a trailer to be loaded or unloaded.

I'll update here when I know for sure but I probably won't be getting back to the yard until then.

I'm about to leave Indy now, I probably wouldn't be able to make it there before 11.

Next time.

BTW we are hiring again if you are interested might be a good time to do it as they are adding 3 or 4 drivers so you could end up with people below you.

No worries Bobcat. Figured it was worth a shot. I'm down that way every once in a while. And I continue to consider OD. But my company maybe picking up alot of work come end of the year. So I don't know. I keep going back and forth with it.

I commend you for that, too many drivers change companies more than their socks the moment something doesn't go their way.

OD probably isn't going anywhere any time soon.
