    New App for Sprinters & Cargo Vans

    Ragman - I've had enough folks say nice things about me here on EO that any that might consider a derogatory comment, well let's just say they probably don't know me. If they did say something bad - shame on them! I'll take my ball and go home. :) Worn-out Manager - I miss talking to the...

    New App for Sprinters & Cargo Vans

    Those designations mean I spent a lot of time studying, and also my own money to learn the very fine details of my craft - much more so than the normal "safety geek". Great thing is I am still willing to share my knowledge with everyone (drivers and carriers) in the expedite industry. Turtle...

    Expediting is the ambulance service to the freight industry. Loads are very seldom pre-planned. Carriers and their drivers are at the mercy of the call of the shipper in need. Being at the right place at the right time can make for great weeks. Coincidence of being in an area where no...

    Attn, recruiters for ALL companies!

    BPresley - only the company or companies you are interested in driving for can answer if you will qualify. Research and apply to the carriers you would consider. They will notify you either way. I would say 3 points is minor, BUT, carriers do not hire based on points - they hire based on...

    ELD''s in cargo/sprinter vans

    Moot - The certificate you posted very much resembles the document - Driver's Statement of On-Duty Hours - which I always have drivers complete at the time of orientation. The intention is so we as the company carrier do not ask that driver to exceed the HOS regulations with our first dispatch...

    ELD''s in cargo/sprinter vans

    The van driver becomes an operator of a Commercial Motor Vehicle at the time of commencement of the hazmat load requiring placards. The regulations state that the driver must maintain a record or log of hours worked for the previous 7 days. That record could be a time card or log and should...

    The FedEx Image

    Perhaps there were issues with asking contractors to wear uniforms, especially if those uniforms were provided and required by the company. Possible misclassification of contractor and employee. The commercial video was for Ring, not FedEx. Another possible reason for the low level attire and...

    Can someone explain this pay scheme?

    Pay by loaded mile is most likely because the truck is leased on to the carrier on a loaded mile basis. At .45 per loaded mile to the driver you will be earning 34.6% if the truck is paid $1.30 per loaded mile, and 37.5% if the truck is paid $1.20 per loaded mile. The fuel surcharge should...
