Sounds like a bad country western tune title. Anyhow I delivered at a Wal-Mart dc last night, was supposed to pick up a load today at 11. Told my DM I didn't know if that was going to happen, unloading at Wal-Mart's can turn into a lengthy ordeal. They say no big deal, what's your ETA to your pickup? I tell them between 1300-1330, that say that's fine. I get here at1330 and an told day shift is gone, night shift gets here at 2000. Ok, cool. Come to find out THIS night shift only unloads trailers, the night shift that loads then won't be in until Sunday at 1800.... at least I can shut down here till morning then head to a truck stop. This load has now been rescheduled. ~~ siiiiiiiiiiiggghhh~~


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.

I usually try to shut down at a consignee... I've only shut down at a shipper once, their machine making the parts I was hauling broke, and I ran out of hours before they let me know.


The customer the freight is being delivered to. Also referred to as "the receiver". The shipper is the customer that is shipping the goods, the consignee is the customer receiving the goods.


The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
