Anne explains..,

It's no joke. They WILL (and have, and can!) fire a 'student' for violation, thereof! Very military regime, former Marines. Thank them!

It’s very simple. I believe its a test of comprehending and respecting basic instructions. If an individual cannot follow an instruction like that, TMC management believes said individual can’t be trusted with a quarter million dollar asset plus a customers valuable lading.

Really no different than ignoring a road sign prohibiting your 80,000 lbs of vehicle to cross a bridge designed to only hold 10 tons.

Okay...

So we highly recommend investing time reviewing and studying the links that make up the Trucking Truth starter kit. It’s also recommended that you encourage your wife to read Brett’s Book.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

You were DANG CLOSE, G'town! Re: The moon . . . The last full moon of 2021 reached peak illumination on Saturday, Dec. 18, at 11:32 p.m. ET, according to NASA. Known as the "cold/blue moon" by the Mohawk people, this full moon occurs just a few days shy of Dec. 21, the longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, also known as the winter solstice, also known as Anne's B'day!! Solstice AND cusp baby. . . explains A LOT, haha!

PackRat, sleep off those 700 miles, man!!!!! Sheesh! It's the 'longest night' of the year, too ~ My Birthday drive, haha!!

Hey man. I currently drive for TMC. I did line haul and now I’m ont the dedicated side for Home Depot. You can DM me for more info.

Line Haul:

Linehaul drivers will normally run loads from terminal to terminal for LTL (Less than Truckload) companies.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning them to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

Dm:

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.
