    Dodged them for 5 years. But today I’m pulling a Swift trailer. Oh my gawdy! I’m ruined, may God have mercy on me.
    To be fair. Dispatch said they pay pretty good. They’re easy to deal with too.

    If stay off Bonehead Truckers, you'll be a high grade Swift driver. I've heard that it's really not so bad working there, it's just their reputation of tearing up things soils their image. I've actually never seen a Swift truck tear up anything in live time. Only on YouTube lol

    SmartDrive



    Safety is one of our top priorities at Swift Transportation, and as such, we provide top-of-the-line safety equipment & technology in each one of our trucks. SmartDrive is a video-based safety tool that helps our drivers know exactly where they stand when it comes to their safe driving. SmartDrive is advantageously designed with the ability to record video and audio, read and interpret roadway signage, and assign drivers with a SmartDrive Safety Score. The SmartDrive camera is exclusively outward-facing and does not have the ability to view or record inside the cab.

    Yes… their trailers have driver facing cameras. :)
    This trailer was left a good 3 inches above the fifth wheel. Had to crank it down, loaded, in slow speed. A Swift driver came over and offered to help.
    I don’t think you people understand. I’m not driving for Swift. My company took one of their loads in their trailer. All loaded and waiting. Apparently we do this often? I don’t drive a Swift truck.

    Before this, early on. Swift certified me as a Supertrucker. You know how they do that? They back into your truck at a truck stop. So I’ve been a “Certified Super Trucker” for some time now.
