Maybe early?

Howdy and welcome to Dodge City, Kansas. Our preloaded trailer isn’t scheduled to officially be released until 11pm tomorrow night. After checking in today upon our arrival to Dodge City, they told me our trailer was already in a door and being loaded. We will go ahead and shutdown tonight and give them overnight to finish up our load. Tomorrow we will wake up and call them to verify it is ready. Once we get it, we will roll on towards the “Home of the White Squirrels”. I’m not promising it will be ready early, but it is a very good sign since it is already in the dock doors!

  1. Back on the Olney Express again. Money money. Why is it I have the feeling that those people asked for you. They might be onto Big Rigs. Anyone who likes to track their shipments and found out about you would fix it. Shippers can be absolutely obsessed. That’s why Fed Ex led the way in tracking. And you my friend are like light years ahead of the best tracking system in the world.

    I believe that your company might not be aware, that they know. Neither would you. But I look at the run data and it seems just about right. Every customer had a favorite driver/courier/ company representative. Hence thee get the Olney Express.

  2. …Never Fails. The one time I’m close enough to cross paths, I’m stuck helping family for the day. Grmbl.

  3. So if they make you wait all day and you can’t go anywhere till 11pm do you still get paid something for sitting around? At that point it will have been 24 hours since you arrived and it would suck to not get any pay for a day.

  4. The shipper is not technically making Steve wait around as long as they have his trailer ready by the 11PM deadline on the scheduled day.
    Steve got there a day early so if the trailer is ready prior to 11PM, they have fulfilled their obligation.

    1. That all depends on when the shipper releases our trailer. We been calling every two hours since 3an

  5. You just missed all that snow in Colorado and Wyoming today. Denver’s already had 6 inches overnight with more expected.
