It amazes me how people cannot use common sense and think for themselves. Like strangers on the internet know how a company manager will respond. OP, call your manager and ask THEM!

Did you ask your dispatch? Company management would have a better answer for you than strangers from a website.

I see nothing wrong with what the op asked. Strangers on this website just may know how a company may typically respond to this situation. We’re here to help. We can’t all be top tier drivers out of the gate!

Dan, in a previous life I was tasked with pre-employment background screenings. The advice here (speak to the company, get specific direction as to how to resolve the load to avoid an abandonment tag) is sound. While many refer back to gaining a driving job in the future, there is a bigger issue that looms. You sound like you're done with this as a career, and there is no shame or judgment in that. It's a rough go. However, If you dump the load and walk, no matter how justified it may seem, the company is likely to enter a negative note in your DAC file. Their personnel records will reflect load abandonment. And any job which entails an in-depth background check conducted by a serious practitioner of that craft will likely come up with that abandonment. Not many employers will readily grasp onto someone that has a history of abdicating their responsibilities.

I wish you well.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.
