    This is the 2nd time in in a few months that ive come across a fedex daycab pulling doubles. This one was in texas on 20 eastbound near cisco. Same weather conditions. Same results. Both went down an embankment resulting in the cab bieng completely destroyed. I hope the driveris ok.

  3. they have these guys on a clock. not the ELD. but you need to start at this time and take this many hours to get to drop. Period.

    That's reason enough for not running team. Don't relish the thought of waking up as I sail out the bunk and through the windshield because my partner failed to mention he suffers from narcolepsy.:)

    He said it was a day cab. It's in the very first sentence.

    fedex freight.......run as hard as you possibly can in 5 days (nights) and make big money. Anyone remember the crash in Cali a couple of years back when fedex freight went through a median and killed a bunch of high school kids in a bus? Same story

    Hope driver is ok. I'm sure many are familiar with I-64 rolling east through Cross Lanes / Institute, WV. Couple years ago in only 1 week there was 3 wrecks involving semis coming down institute hill. Of the 3 wrecks 2 were FedEx, and yes it was winter time but traffic was rolling good. Institute will catch you off guard if you're rolling to hard and start down hill and rolling to the right all at the same time. Y'all be safe out there.
     
    Steel Dragon, mjd4277 and bigkev1115 Thank this.

  11. you misunderstood my references to time. FedEx, UPS And Walmart all use a time to distance for locations. they dont care about weather or conditions.

    The company says 9 hrs to store 123 you better be at store 123 in 9 hrs or less. I ran for walmart

    your given a cheat sheet. it tells of two or maybe three ways from point of origin to Destination. As well as what load out of the 3 that store will get. i happen to have load #2 Load #1was ahead of me.(hopefully). and three was going to arive after me.

    this was not in California, so "clock method" you mention does not apply to the rest of the states.
    FedEx has a ball buster run from Kansas City to Denver EVERYDAY.
    602 miles we can say Fed ex wants it in 9hrs no later. they have trucks going to sparks/Reno and Phoenix waiting on that load to split it up.

    the contractors,
    hire sleep deprived team drivers to drive like crazy men and deliver. while the truck keeps truckin. i wouldnt work for FEDEX in a million years.

    thats the meaning i ment by clock.
     
    Steel Dragon, Lepton1 and Opus Thank this.
