After months of regional/local driving for an ag company whilst getting my mind straight and pulling the ole head out of me arse I'm back on track. I'm leaving for Gary, Indiana on Monday to start Schneider Walmart Dedicated orientation.

I'll be delivering out of the Sterling Illinois DC. When the man child graduates high school and heads to Vanderbilt for college this summer I'll try a transfer to regional or regular OTR. I'll have bills to pay that will stretch my university early retirement pension very thin. The man child is worth every penny. Wish me good fortune!

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

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.

Thanks G-Town. I'm pretty pumped-up to finally be on the way.

Take your time in this account. It will chew you up... if you let it.

Don’t rush, never rush and prep by looking at a Google Map of the store delivery you are dispatched to. Plan your entry, backing setup and egress before arrival. No surprises... ask for help if you’re the slightest bit unsure.

Search on my name and Walmart...thousands of words on my 7 years of experience running Walmart Dedicated in the Northeast. Also search on “Turtle Walmart”. He is a WMPF driver running out of Johnstown NY (near Albany)

Good luck!

Good luck. Nice to see a fellow Walmart dedicated driver coming on. I was just as thrilled as you when I first came on
