    Hooking is easy. It just takes practice to be efficient at it. Biggest tip I can offer is Pretrip the truck completely after you do all your hooking as if someone else did the hooking and you’re checking their work. I’ve missed stuff before in my hooking that I catch when I pretrip. No biggie unless you take off down the road without finding it!

    One more Question, Does ABF have an onboard navigation system or do I need to find me another truck GPS?

    Most LTL outfits don't install navigation systems on their tractors.

    Generally, they have a specific route that they want you to follow. And don't appreciate it if you don't.
    Good luck.

    So far, Peoplenet has routed me the way they want me to go. It does give me route options, however, ABF's routes are usually it's first option. It will do ...for now.

    Well, ABF is one of those companies that want you to stick to their route. Might want to find out the consequences of going OOR before you do it. Jus sayin

    Forgive my ignorance, what does "OOR" mean?
