It's a Team's Life

Who are you going to call?

We are very lucky to have a wide circle of contacts that help keep us in the know!   We are getting ready to pick up a load and the delivery directions look a little sketchy to me.   I know of a team that has experience with the area we are going to so I give them a call and sure as heck following the directions given we would be walking right into a ticket for having the truck where it should not be.   When we have an issue on how to secure an odd piece of freight such as slot machine returns, computers, very small pieces, or HazMat we have phone numbers and emails to ask questions of.   We also maintain a full list of bookmarks on the computer to read about special issues we might run into.   We feel as if we have a huge safety net underneath us at all times that helps keeps us safe and legal.   It is funny how we have built this network as the most unlikely person can become a very valuable asset to us.   We appreciate the wisdom of our friends and acquaintances that keep us grounded and positive without them this would be a lonely life full of way to much solitude.
