Moved perhaps the oldest trailer I’ve ever moved yesterday.

Drivers on my account park our trucks in a small gated lot next door to our customer. When I finished up yesterday my dispatcher said that the lot needed an old storage trailer moved and that I just volunteered.

No one could remember when it was last moved. Tires and landing gear were sunk into the ground at least 6 inches. When I put air to it I was very surprised to just hear a few leaks and the brakes released with no issues.

No room to turn around in the lot so they blocked traffic and I pulled onto the street and backed up so I could pull back in.

My dispatcher called me today and said the lot management was very impressed with my skills.

Here is a picture of the BEI trailer in its new resting place. Should be good for another 20 years.



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.
