The other day, Sept 21st was my 1 year here at CRST got whoppin $50 and ty card sent to the house.

So yesterday here in NC get fed ex load cancelled, get new load for CAT to Illinois. Well just as I get to shippers, my DM calls, to get me parked to go in for a random drug & alcohol test Haha

I say " you sure you got the right driver?? As my co had a lil incident saturday at a loves cracking a Prime ladies headlight.

Didn't think he got that close til we got woke up 3 hours later by her and a cop. Seems trailer corner just broke clear lens leaving a piece ON our trailer. And the DOT knocked out her fog light assembly.

They handled that fine she was very nice n calm just glad we still there lol....He CAN back good, was just 1 those things finishin his 11th hour dead tired n things happen.

So we're 1000 miles to deliver in Decatur n have xpo load out back home....cool we kept busy a lot with this Sr. DM......

I am, so far incident free whewwwww and plan to stay that way !! Lol

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Dm:

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
