I have not seen any FX trucks all day on I-70 from the Indiana/Illinois border to Oak Grove, MO. That's never happened.

What is FX? Are you talking about FedEx? If so, I saw several singles and doubles on I-70 today between Columbus, OH and Indianapolis.

Yep, FedEx. FXF and FX/LH (ltl.)

No storms from CMH to Indy... all northern. Sux.

LTL:

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

Consignee:

The customer the freight is being delivered to. Also referred to as "the receiver". The shipper is the customer that is shipping the goods, the consignee is the customer receiving the goods.

We got about 6 inches by my house/ home terminal Indy got like a foot and our Chicago terminal got 18 inches.

Now I'm worried about ice tonight as it's supposed to be -2 °and the roads are still kinda messy.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I hope all goes well for ya, Bobcat. Tom's on his way home 'early' tonight, T/G. Last night was a nightmare. I don't even wanna SEE the dashcam footage, tbh.

We had about 8" around the house; my 'plow guy' just left, from cleaning up our drive & the roundyround driveway for the rig.

Be safe.

If you are ever running 59, there's a T/A on the loop in Nacogdoches. Post on here what time you'll be stopping there and your truck number. I'll meet you and we can do that. I'd be proud to meet ya!

Hey OS, is that offer Jammer-specific or is it open to others as well? I may be driving through there tomorrow (Thursday) depending on the road conditions.
