I've got a pick up at 22:00 06/04/14 and by the time I get ready to roll, scaled out and finally on the Freeway at full speed it will Midnight which is 06/05/14 and they want this load delivered in Boise, ID at 05:30 06/07/14. I've done some hard running in my short few years of driving but damn, I just don't get how they plan sometimes.

Would anyone else complain about this delivery time or do I need to just deal with it and drive as hard as possible and burn up my 70?

I forgot to mention the Miles 1500 give or take a few.

I would not complain about the load but I would definitely advise dispatch that it's nearly impossible to run 750 mi a day under HOS .

I'm running loads with a trainer...and he says 2 HR for every 100 miles. pulling hills...loop roads around major cities and a 64 mph governed truck .

650 mile a day trucks is stretching it on else's .

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
