Brooklyn, IA tonight.
I don't like very early mornings, and today I had to be driving at 0400 to make a 0500 unload at a Costco just north of Chicago.
I got to my second stop 30 minutes early at 0600 and I was 4th in line . Turns out the 0500 and 0530 appointments both spent the night in the Costco lot and expected the Costco people to wake them up, so they were late from not waking themselves up.
One trailer just starting to be unloaded and 3 in front of me. I had expected to be there many, many hours.
1 hour and 50 minutes later and I was fully unloaded and getting my paperwork. I was very impressed.
Then I headed to Rockford, IL to pick up a Lowe's load going to Wichita, KS.
More and better times with this load so I was able to stop a bit early today.
I had a pickup this morning, or so I thought.
The guard shack had all the paperwork because shipping is closed on the weekend.
They didn't have the BOL for my load.
It took me 2 hours to get through to my terminal. When I did a message was sent to CSR.
In the following couple hours 2 more messages were sent to CSR.
Here it is 8 hours after I arrived at the shipper, and I still have heard nothing back from anyone.
All morning trying to get that load taken off. At about 1330 I was asked to go back and check on the load again because the paperwork should be there.
I went there and again was told by the guard that it wasn't there, but I could look as well if I wanted.
There is a guard shack copy, the drivers copy and the customer copy, and they were all clipped together.
As I was flipping through the BOL's I noticed the second (driver) copy had my BOL number.
The guard shack copy was different than the driver and customer copies, which were my load.
Different trailer, even a different carrier, but somehow the two got jumbled together.
It took nearly an hour to get it straightened out because the guard had to call in the shipping manager to fix things.
I'm hoping I will get some serious detention pay.
