Sysco Cincinnati

It was a horrible start to this trip, not very long after I headed out of Loves on 78 I saw a lot of commotion going on in the westbound lanes. From the radio, I could hear a woman had been run over by a truck. 

Once I got to the shipper, things went fast. I called the phone numbe...


Urgent load

It took literally forever yesterday getting unloaded up in Quakertown, but no worries. I got another 10 hour break down, which was needed because my planned delivery next day in Richmond Hill NY got canceled, they needed a produce load from Florida to be delivered in Elizabeth NJ and a second ...


Weekend

Finally home after a pretty unusual week, not a bad week. Just unusual. I arrived yesterday in the afternoon at the Lineage warehouse in Conklin NY, but they were not able to get me unloaded early. Not a surprise really, I've been in this game for a while now.

I was directed to park in...


A chill day

A pretty chill day I must say. Started this morning in Monroe Township NJ delivering the Tyson product to Costco on Costco Drive, checked in, and did all that stuff you do there. Was immediately assigned to door #144 and 2 hours later I was done and could leave.

My next dispatch howeve...


Wakefern in Jamesburg

Another week but no Quakertown this time, unfortunately. I did however get back east and this time to Wakfern in Jamesburg. I've been here a few times before and it's easy to get to. The place has overnight parking, high lumper fees, and tight spots, especially if you get here at the wrong tim...


Performance foods

Finally made it to my destination here at Performance Food Services in Montgomery IL. I started later than normal yesterday. I was going to pick up a preloaded trailer in Streetsboro OH at 16:00.

I arrived at the destination around 1500 and the trailer was already done. I guess I could...


Such a long day

This has been a long day. After getting unloaded at Sysco in Jamesburg today I was notified that they refused two pallets of nutrition bars, 520 boxes to be exact.

I called the os&d to let them know and was waiting to find out what the shipper would like to do about it. 2 hours lat...


Saturday work

I worked this weekend, was a great day with a blue sky and sun. Started from home around 8, went to pick up my preloaded trailer in Lockbourne OH. I arrived at the customer, but the trailer wasn't really preloaded after all. 

After a little less than an hour I was ready to go, but...


York

Started off this morning from the company yard in Carlisle, but first, it was time for a truck wash. It's been a few weeks since the last, which is well overdue and also pretty embarrassing, I really dislike a dirty truck.

Made my way over to Quakertown with my newly washed truck, thou...


Romeoville

Finally made it up to AmerisourceBergen in Romeoville after a couple hours delay at the shipper. 

I arrived at the destination at 18:30 and got unloaded quickly. It was no more than maybe 6 skids so it felt like driving an empty trailer.

The trip went smooth, roads were...


Ice storm

This week started with some fresh snow that came overnight from Sunday, but not too bad and I started like I normal would on a turkey load from Harrison.

The rest of the trip to Quakertown went pretty smooth, the snow kinda disappeared as I got further east and it eventually started to...


New England

It's been an interesting week with some trips up to the New England area. After my delivery in Connecticut on Wednesday I went back to Bethlehem PA for another load up to Medline in Uxbridge.

Uxbridge is a small place just a few miles south of Worcester and about 30 miles west of Bosto...


Georgia Georgia

Had the Monday off because of labor day, took out a vacation day for it so I didn't lose any money. started Tuesday morning in Columbus Ohio with a load from interstate Cold storage on Roberts road, to Kroger in Forest Park Georgia.

The cold storage was kind of slow getting me a door, ...


Good morning from New Stanton

Good morning, there's been a while since I updated. it's been kind of busy lately with a lot of stuff going on at home and at work. I did the nyc as usual and then the rare noodles load from TMI in Brooklyn too Harrisburg. Was lucky and got it delivered and unloaded by 11pm same day even when ...


Finally here

Finally here in Plainfield Indiana with the Siemens load. Getting unloaded now as I type. 

The drive over here was great, beautiful weather, but a lot of retarded drivers out there now. Obviously people are not staying home anymore.

Took my night 20 miles some east of Colu...


Axle alignment and b service

Well, the Dunkin donuts load to Ohio got canceled and replaced with a banana load from Gloucester City to Columbus instead. To me, that was a good deal. I also got called in for a B service and axle alignment.

Since I started out in the Bronx I didn't make it all the way back but made ...


Watermelons

I had watermelons today, going from Gloucester to Jessup in Maryland. I started my day in the Bronx and headed down towards Philadelphia around 9 am. 

On my way down I stopped at Love's in Bordentown for lunch. Just after noon, I arrived at the Del Monte in Gloucester City. I didn...


A long day

I woke up at 2 am this morning, feeling super tired.  I showed up at Walmart security gate at 2:30 but was told I couldn't check in before 3:00 a.m. So I had no other choice than head back and wait another 30 minutes.

 When I finally got in, the unloading itself was pretty fa...


The lost load

I was up early and didn't get much sleep last night, but i slept well for a few hours. The produce load out from Springfield was supposed to be pre-loaded at 13:00, I showed up on time and they'd just put the trailer in the door.

Trailer was done loaded between 15:00-16:00 so i left so...


Finally in Bronx

After a few hours delay I finally got my PO numbers right and I could continue my day. I'm finally here at Hunts Point market in Bronx. Rolled in the gate at 9 p.m.

Now I just have to stay here and wait until tomorrow morning where I will be unloading at 8 a.m. I currently don't have a...


New York City & long island

This is my second trip to NYC and Long Island. Same stops as last time, but a pickup from Brooklyn, very close to my second stop. Weather is great today, in the mid 40s.

Thanksgiving is also coming up for whoever is lucky enough to celebrate that with families. I'll probably be home on...


Canada Dry

Must be my first load ever with Canada Dry, picked up yesterday from Pittston with an 1130 appointment. Now sitting here waiting to get unloaded at the Canada Dry location in Landover.

I parked about an hour away yesterday cause there's no place to park down here that I know of, but on...


Quick week

The last few weeks have gone by really fast thanks to late Monday afternoon starts with loads from Boars Head. Picking up from New Castle IN to Groveport OH then back for another one to Spring City PA.

This week was just the same almost, except from an extra load going from the Columbu...


Ice cream to Kroger

Been doing the ice cream loads all week and paychecks are looking great and I'm home every weekend. My choice was right. This is great. 

Today my load was late and I've been waiting for a door since 5:30am. Time now is 4:30pm, got a door an hour ago, but haven't started unloading ...


Friendliest store in town ?

Early start today with a 5am appointment at Schnuks Distribution. I wasn't sure whether they had overnight parking or not here so I parked at Loves just 9 miles away last night. 

When I got here they have a big parking lot with overnight parking just outside the gates. Good to kno...


Jersey City

Picked up a preloaded trailer from the Indy yard yesterday, then drove to Dayton for an hour break at home. Left towards Columbus for my fuel stop then continued towards Carlisle where I shut down for the night.

Started at 0600am this morning from Carlisle, took 81 North then 78 over t...


Cabbage from Florida

Back at Fresh Express in Harrisburg again, this time after several great trips to Florida. It's been some pretty good weeks overall. I'm hoping for more Florida trips. I can't express my love for Florida enough. 

My physical is about to expire in a couple of days so today after ge...


Hometime

I was pretty sure i was gonna make it home by on time until I got this load to Pontoon Beach were I ended up with no options other than going down to St Louis to pick up a load going west. With less than three days to my hometime I decided not to go further than Kansas City.

Shut down ...


Back to Florida

On my way down to Russelville yesterday afternoon I ran into problems with my weekly 70 hour limit again, I've been to busy with the previous loads so I made it to a rest-area in Ozark AR. Spent my night there and took of next morning the last 50 minutes to Russelville and did my delivery. A l...


Americold in Ontario OR

Got here early for my 1800 deliver appointment, but was told I didn't have an  appointment so I went over to Pilot and spent a few hots there before they called me. They should work me in. At 20:00 they called and I went over there to get unloaded. About an hour later they were done and I...


San Diego in snow

Started out from Yuma AZ this morning with very little sleep due to Netflix watching and smartphone mania last night. Made my way  almost to San Diego then I ran into some really slick roads, lots of melted snow that turned to ice and wet pavement that was frozen. It was the pass about 50...


A windy and wet reset in Chicago

Its been a pretty busy week apparently, I'm out of my 70 hours again and this time not even a single hour gained next day. I unloaded and spent the night on the streets outside Anthony Marano last night.

Drove down to Loves in South Holland next morning to finish the rest of my reset. ...


From the dirty south to the cold north

Just done with my delivery at Ryder in Rochelle IL. My appointment was at 0400 and I backed into a door then went to bed. At 0830 this morning they knocked on my door and told me they were ready to unload. Done at 11:00 which gives me 5 hour detention pay. 

I was loaded up at Amer...


From Cali to Oregon

A little late because I decided in the last minute to do an inspection on my truck at the Fontana yard, but there were no problems or delays at the receiver because of it so I'm good.

It's crazy tight and busy in here, probably one of the worst places I've been to. Now just got into a ...


Beef to Mexico

I'm back here again to try get this beef unloaded. Showed up at 8 like I was told to and waited for about 4 hours then they were ready. They were actually ready at the same time the other truck pulled in here so I guess that's the one taking it into Mexico. From what I understand when I talked...


Mexican trouble

I've got to the consigne on time today, but didn't help much cause they couldn't unload before they got approval from the customs in Mexico. They speak pretty much only spanish where I was, but they had one guy there they used to translate. Now I'm at the Pilot just 5 miles away waiting until ...


Greley to Nogales

I'm now at a rest area south of Colorado Springs on I-25 just done a 10 hour break. Loaded up yesterday at Millards Cold Storage in Greeley going to Nogales, AZ.

My previous load, the ice cream from Henderson to Safeway was delivered on time. They unloaded pretty fast, but had to wait ...


East coast then west

Got a late delivery appointment yesterday to Dunkin Donuts for a change. Took my sleeper birth at Bensalem and ordered a pizza. Now at Kraft foods in Allentown to load for Groveport OH.

2016-10-06 21:15:02

The Bellingham load was done loaded on the truck at 20:00, so we just waited an hour more and did an 8+2 split then drove about 300 or so miles down to a rest area south of Richland OR.

Next day we was ready to drive around 13:00, but because of the 70 hour limit we didn't get more tha...


2016-09-29 11:54:37

Isn't it lovely when you only get 3 hours of sleep and have to use the remaining 7 hours of your sleeper birth to drive in off-duty between two companies and unload.

That's what's happening today and it's not the first time in this company known as Knight Refrigerated. Yesterday I only...


Bananas for going home

Finally here at Del Monte Columbus OH delivering my last load after 4 week's on the road. I stopped at home last Saturday for a few hours. This load of bananas is coming from Del Monte in Gloucester City PA.

They seemed pretty busy here today,  but I hope they can get me unloaded ...

Monday morning I wen...


With Pineapples from Galveston

Pine apples from Costa Rica to Columbus OH. The ship came in around 2200 and I checked in at 2330. Since all the pine apples has to be unloaded and inspected by US government its needless to say I was too early and my midnight appointment were going to be rescheduled. I went back to the truck ...


Americold Ontario OR

Then I'm here at Americold in Ontario OR. Checked in at 1700 and waiting in the door now for them to start unloading me. The trip started in Hawthorne this morning and the weather was great, but it got slightly colder on my way up here. I have not received any preplans yet so once I'm done her...
