Much easier to use the hook on the tractor!

Oh absolutely!

Where my run originates, I don’t have the space for heroics.

Can someone either TAKE, or guide me to, a video on this?!?!? When Tom drove for FX/LH .... I was unable to be a part of ANYTHING trucking...with babies either brewing or bothering, haha!

This is one of my 'LEAST' understood parts of trucking. I know what dollies and pintle hooks are, to a point; I just don't 'get it.' Not that I'll ever NEED TO, but y'all who know me, know . . . I LOVE TO KNOW!

Besides, anyone on TT coming into LTL/doubles, sure could benefit, as well!

Thanks, guys. TIA (for those who know the meaning; not YOU, Laura . . . haha!)

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Indeed. I've looked some; found less. They all 'assume' we know what we don't know, imho!

This will be a huge ASSET to TT . . . as so many people, as of late, are going LTL !!

Major thanks, G !

Great point! I dont know what I dont know! hahaha.. There seems to be a good LTL community growing and it would be nice to have more reliable information on the site. I know that I am pretty new here, but I would sure appreciate the advice and insight from the Vets! I hope to be able to contribute and find some good information along the way as well. Thanks!

This comment relates to the other thread but I feel more appropriate here since it is kind of more LTL related. If you can get the phone numbers of other drivers that start around the same time as you do so you can check with them and see if they are running. Same for your destinations try and get the phone numbers of drivers who get there around the same time and see what they are upto.

The run I had before went to Indy so a bunch of guys who went that way would get together and decide if it was safe. Since I had the first gate time the guys who left after me would call and ask how the roads are. A couple times I called them and said don't bother getting out of bed lol.

YTB Anne! Thanks!

YTB, G'Town!!

I'm still patiently waiting for this fruition, all y'all LTL guys. Banks, BobcatBob, Daniel B., Rhino, AND ALL THE NEW LTL peeps.. I know, I've left out a few/TONS! (How's the busdriver turned LTL? Any one know?)

Thx always! I'm the 'sponge' of the forum, as well as the 'momma,' haha!
