    Also you have to make sure that your logs have been approved from the previous day. If not, it will not dispatch. There are times that if you are to BT to pickup, it will do so automatically, like if you drop and heading to a terminal for a t-called load. There are some other times also.

    OS&D are gone as of March 31, we'll have to deal exclusively with Swift. I know that Central's Intermodal department is going over to customer service, although I don't know if that's general cs or intermodal cs. Brokerage is staying, and they're hiring more safety folks.

    I seriously doubt they're having the shops install black boxes. Given the amount of trouble they had installing a new qualcomm in my truck and my gf's truck, I think a black box with sensors would be beyond most shops.

    Just got my statement, ran 2200 was paid $211! Gave payroll a call, apparently you are supposed to scan one receipt per page I was never trained on this..... So all my lumper payments, scale tickets that didn't go on my comdata card, as well as def purchase because comdata wouldn't work, none of this got reimbursed. So I'm out about $400 until the 18th, if I can get it sorted with payroll before then. But I can't do anything about it today because I left all my paperwork in my truck that is currently at frieghtliner and the payroll system is apparently down so they can't even look at my scans! But I suppose this is all my fault since I didn't scan my reciepts properly.... *sigh*

    Smadronia,
    I'm curious about this. Do you mean you and your gf's truck as in you are a team?

    Or you and your gf's truck as in you each run a separate truck?

    I guess I missed it if you are team drivers.

    Went to Denver to get my videos done finally, lol. We nosed in and the yard guy asked us to turn the truck around. As I'm helping my student a Swift driver tried to grab our spot. He parked behind my student so he couldn't back up!! I said can you go ahead and go around? He's a student. Dude says, "I'm looking for a spot too!" Lol. WTH?!? "Ok, drive your truck around and good luck with that, he needs to back up. We ARE parking here!" Some people's kids I swear...
