Pre-Trip Challenge - Expedite Expo 2017
The Pre-Trip Challenge is just that a challenge that is also a learning experience. With less drivers on paper logs the officers are looking for other easy violations
What is Expediting?
How is expediting different than truck load and how is expediting the same? Who does expediting and why? Why attend the Expedite Expo?
We are not on Vacation!
When talking with a couple that are considering becoming truck drivers we got to talking about snacking.
Excuses to not look silly – a Puppy
Walking a dog lets us walk off the beaten path and look like we should be there.
Learn so not to become a Message
Walk on the dark side or someone else’s shoes and I often find myself saying “WTH” or what were they thinking or not thinking.
What is this Escrow you speak of ?
Anyone who has rented an apartment surely paid a security deposit to cover damages. Escrow in our industry works basically the same. It is money held in the event it is needed to cover freight damage, vehicle damage, property damage or failure to return company owned equipment such as Omnitracs, load bars and straps.
Oh NO I have nothing to wear
This question was asked of me the other day from a potential expediter and it stumped me… Bring as much as needed but I knew that was not the answer she was looking for.
Don’t call 911
How often are we told the first number to all in an accident is not 911? When a railroad crossing is involved 911 is the second number to call.
Hot enough to fry an egg outside but like a Ice Cube Inside
Insulation, at home or in the truck, is something to think about. How well is the truck insulated and is there anything we can do to help?
Playing the waiting game of loads
We often second guess ourselves when taking a load wondering if a better one will be offered a little later in the day. Expediting is never the same.
