    I had FIVE different trailers yesterday.

    Spent the night outside my 99 (24/7 facility decided to close for the night...) dropped that trailer in minooka, hooked an empty and deadheaded to Plover, dropped the empty and hooked a loaded and headed to Rochelle. Dropped the loaded at Americold and hooked an empty and went 100ft to hillshire where I waited 45 minutes to get in the gate, dropped that empty and hooked my next loaded and went to Walcott.

    Sometimes the old school way is the best way. I remember getting a message about once a month:

    Missing trailers 532272, 531247, 533446.

    If you find any of those trailers, report it to your DM and recieve a $100 bonus!


    Do they still do that?

    Yes, but instead of a qc msg the #'s are listed on the driver portal.

    I've seen a few Centrals pulling Xtra lease trailers, maybe we might be moving that direction. It does not make much business since to have too many trailers so having a base fleet to cover our slow to medium times and utilizing a 3rd party lease when needed would help relieve the stress during busy times, because a service failure is never a good thing.

    Anyone have information on the new Rochelle Illinois terminal? When it's going to open how much service Will be provided? Morava drop yard? Driver facility with saunas basketball court movie theater? I can dream. Realize prime promotes that but how much Time will I spend at the main terminal? Riding the dog to SLC next Friday

    Woohoo! So today was the day. Got back up to CRSWVC after a few days of home time and was assigned a truck. They gave me a White 2013 Freightliner Cascadia, same as my trainers truck with the exception of it being a nine speed. Have a load going to Shamrock in Denver, CO however once I got finished with the assignment process, the safety meeting and loading all of my crap I discovered the trailer was red tagged.

    Talked to the trailer shop, but they said a couple of hours. Probably due time for some shut eye anyway! Load doesn't deliver until the 26th, but I wanted to get it there in a hurry and see if I could drop and move on to another load. Looks like tomorrow night will be a better ETA. Hope you are all staying safe and as always can't wait to meet more of you out on the road or in a terminal some day!

    I also was at Crswvc today. Completed my upgrade and got assigned to a tractor. My co-driver will upgrade tomorrow. Then I hope to head home to Sacramento for some home time.
