Aluminum. Lots of aluminum. I'm a dedicated driver to the Hydro aluminum extrusions plant in Delhi, LA. Almost all my loads are multi-stop. I'm all over the place, but mostly east of the Rockies. Today I have three stops in North Carolina and a final tomorrow in Virginia.

Unfortunately, I do not really know what I'm hauling most of the time.

I do know I had 18k pounds of lighters a week ago.

My favorite thing to haul is probably something easy like shingles lol.

Right now I have this container going to Maryland:


My last one was aluminum from Constellium. Old School, have you been to that Constellium facility in Ravenswood, WV? I know you’ve mentioned hauling Constellium products before.

Pianoman, while I've definitely hauled product to and from Constellium, I don't recall ever visiting that particular location.

Oh ok. If you ever go there let me know! I live about an hour from there now

I haul a lot of scrap paper and finished paper products but I'm currently hauling lighting trusses for concert shows.

Recently looked at my BOL for a meat load and part of the load was: “Butt Portions”.

So I guess you could say I was hauling ass.

Tp or tissue, bulk gypsum, ketchup, boxes, groceries and furniture, bottled water, cabinets, lockers, some high value stuff that I think was electronics, hay, paint, car batteries, grain, bulk and bagged, clothes, building materials, kenworth parts, some really nice toyo performance tires, recycled tires, underwear, diapers (not used), wood chips, bulk and bagged, bulk salt, pallets, anything that will go in a dry van and some stuff that shouldn't.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.
