Hi Chris. Sorry man...

I docked out at 0700 this morning. I’m currently at the Marlton NJ store with 10 pallets; headed to Berlin NJ for a drop and hook. My ETA back to 7030 Is roughly 1600. Hopefully you are out of there by then.

I’m typically dispatched between 0500 and 0700. Back on average in 12 hrs. I’m on what should be a quicker run this morning; thus they already have me preplanned on a second short run. I’ll use most of my 14 today.

Best way is to give me a heads up the day before. Might be able to meet before or after my run. We are on holiday blackout right now, 6 dats per week until Dec 4th. My day off is currently Thursday. Catch as catch can...

Tis the season...!

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.

Chris I usually stop for a coffee on my way back North at one of three places;

Rutters in Hamburg 61 south off of I-78. (Preferred) Loves in Shartlesburg PA Off I-78 Loves in Jonestown Pa; exit 92 of I-81. Occasionally the Pilot off exit 100 on I-81

Let me know...

I'm already back up in New York. I wasn't at the DC very long I bumped the dock at 8:45 and the warehouse guys had me unloaded by 9:10 and I was on my way across the road to the Wegman's DC to pick up a back haul of cardboard for the paper plant in Syracuse. I didn't have a load of coils last night so they let me loose with this load down to Pottsville. I'll be back to the old route tonight with a load of coil to Middletown. Who knows maybe our paths will cross again in the future. Cheers


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
