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.

Awesome! If you have time swing into the truck museum.

I stop in Walcott for break about once a week. Never gets old. I gotta deliver out that way tomorrow to Rock Island and Geneseo but likely won't have time to stop.

Man, I wish I knew that, PackRat. I just went by there within the last hour. I’m way ahead of my schedule, I definitely would have stopped. So close, yet so far.

I really think that the Trucking Truth GPS should be somehow, brought up into the forefront; an EASY button .. like, 'FIND YOUR FRIENDS!'

Also, when you drag the little yellow guy, show the actual place, not the nearest lake/pond/mountain/etc.

Ask IDMtnGal, haha! It drives me NUTS. I can't TELL you how many people I 'found' one weekend, in a preserve, a pond, or on a mountain.

I guess that's a 'Brett' thing, haha!

Would be a cool feature for the new platform, however. . . to be easier accessible.

Just IMHO!
