Hey all. Just wondering if anyone has any info on them. Would like to hear your thoughts

Haya, Ryne.. it's been awhile!

I'm not sure we have anyone with experience first hand w/them; aren't they food service?!?

Look at threads by THESE guys. . . Rob T. / Papa Pig / Banks (switched from FedEx to Pepsi, but ..similar!)

All I've got for the moment. Rob. T's diary is priceless. He's moved on rather well, with his switching all all; I will link his diary. It's 'close' to what you are looking at, far as I can see. Rob T.'s follow up and link to diary!

Best TO you, for sure!

ps: You can always look up a prospective company, here: https://safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/

CSA:

Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)

The CSA is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiative to improve large truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities that are related to commercial motor vehicle

FMCSA:

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

The FMCSA was established within the Department of Transportation on January 1, 2000. Their primary mission is to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries.

What Does The FMCSA Do?

  • Commercial Drivers' Licenses
  • Data and Analysis
  • Regulatory Compliance and Enforcement
  • Research and Technology
  • Safety Assistance
  • Support and Information Sharing

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.

Fm:

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.

DOT foods has different divisions. We had a member (Splitter?) That shared some information about them as he was job searching but I can't seem to find it. They have positions you're 2 wheeling product like I did in my diary mentioned, others you're just bumping docks no touch similar to an OTR driver. I believe the dock bumping position is called transfer driver or something similiar.

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.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

Part of that news article review stated a DOT driver had to reside a certain close distance in relation to their assigned terminal.

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.
