Yep I'm out of CWS, I used to do that LON meet with the COH driver then I lost that run. They ended shorting that run so we could pass through CHI I did that run most of last year. Now I have a 09:00 meet with an MRT driver in Indiana.

That roof collapsed in Chicago the dock was built in the late 20s and couldn't take it any more. They split the Chicago drivers among the 4 other area terminals for 2 months.

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.

0900 meet is pretty sweet! congrats on a great start time. i heard that CWS has a decent amount of daylight runs that drivers can get w/o too much seniority. at HAR we have a good bit of opportunities for linehaul to run daylight as well, but usually your first daylight run will be running wild or having a schedule w/ odd days off. there's a good chance i know who you were meeting out of COH. i won't put their names out here for privacy sake, but i know a lot of COH drivers. most of my runs so far have been meeting COH, MRT, or SBN drivers.

Linehaul:

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.

Great to see you're still around helping people out G-Town! I see Old School is still helping new drivers out too. That's awesome to see.

I've been well. Hope the same w/ you! Are you still driving distribution for Wal-Mart? And were you always based out of DE? We hit the DE beaches almost every year for vacation.

Wish there was a way to pm members on the forum. I'm hoping Daniel checks the site so he can see I didn't forget about him.
