    Hey everybody,

    I hopefully will be running as part of a Hazmat team in the Expedited fleet soon. Just wondering if anybody knows how many hazmat loads they actually pull?

    Wow, that was definitely helpful. Not.

    Not to mention somewhat random.

    While I personally do not have haz-mat, from the drivers I have spoke with in that division most of their loads are haz-mat, but it is usually household cleaners and the like.

    Sorry I cannot be more helpful.

    I. Looked at it as him asking what percentage of the loads where haz, because nobody can really answer how many because it depends ln the length of the run, availability of those runs, and the prayer that they actually decide to plan correctly.

    It would be pretty pointless if the Hazmat Expedited Division pulled anything but Hazmat loads. But with this current CEO and staff of planners/dispatchers, I wouldn't put it past him. Some of the things he's done are just mind-boggling.
