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.

Ha yall'!!! The interview went great!!! They said I could start Saturday but I decided to go with the WIA grant instead of a loan. I will start, I think in about 5 weeks!!! I have to go over and fill out some paperwork. About 30 papers total. It took alot not to sign the papers today but in the end, if I would have done that, I would have to payoff a $6500 loan. NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!!!!!null The best part about it is in the end, I will have my CDL. Yay!!!dancing-banana.gifdancing-dog.gifdancing.gifsmile.gif

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.

Outstanding!!!

Hey, I can't remember - do you already have your permit? You don't have any scores on our High Road Training Program so I wanted to make sure you're prepared.

No, haven't got there yet. I try to find time but, wow it's hard. I have taken two sections on the High Road. Trying to get more. This is so much more than I thought it would be but it is so well worth it.!!!!!
