    Back when I drove for Stevens in 2011, they gave us printouts of how to load a produce trailer based on the number of pallets being loaded. Would anybody care to share those? I would certainly appreciate it.

    I saw that, but it does nothing for 8ft tall produce pallets. The ones I’m asking for are drawn in a top down view. Thanks though!

    They have not given me anything as of yet. But the drivers don't do any loading. If I get any I will upload here

    Eventually you'll wind up some place for a live load with a rookie loader and he'll ask you "how do you want it loaded?"
    If you can't answer his question he'll probably move on to the next truck and leave you standing there.
     
    alds and Lonesome Thank this.

    Produce ? A pallet of carrots weighs more than a pallet of lettuce. Canalopes ? Yeah, heavy. bell peppers ? light.

    It all depends on the weight, and number of pallets. For example, tall heavy pallets of produce may weigh 2,500lbs a piece. So you always start with a single in the nose. May need to load single double single depending on the weight.

    Yeah. I'm just now getting back into the produce game after several years. I just remembered that stevens supplied those back in the day.
