I started this thread recently over there. It's identical to this one.

“Garbage” as in; most of what is written on Truckers Report, not meant as an insult to you or what you wrote.

I'd heard a year ago or so, auto makers also will no longer offer manual trans cars as well hmmmm...

When I started I wanted a manual, but was assigned an auto. Now I love the auto and wouldn’t go back. Do I feel any less of a man? Not at all.

If I can drive 700 miles in an 11 hour shift, I’m pretty confident with my abilities. No need to prove my credentials.

Do you think a national enquirer LTL edition would sell?

Probably not, one guy would buy it then tell everyone he sees what's. By the end of the day the stories will have changed 10 times.

Imo the hate some people have for automatics is no different than what my grandfather delt with when trucks started coming with air ride seats, suspensions, or power steering. Heck even having only one shifter back then was considered for "steering wheel holders"

People hate change and over glorify the "old days"

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
