    3 days sitting last week,

    3 days sitting this week.

    Haven't cracked 2000 miles/week in a while.

    I got this zonar message last week sent to all reefer drivers at my terminal.

    "....Company policy is if your within 30 minutes of a delivery and you run out of time, go make the delivery and then PC somewhere to park after wards. No sense failing a load when you're only 5 minutes from delivery. We lose customers because we continously deliver late and this cannot continue. GNC is the next customer threatening to kick us out if we contiue to fail thier loads. Everytime one of you turns down a load because you don't like where it goes is one more load we can't cover and it fails.......



    I haven't had any service failures and I don't turn down loads, and I'm willing to go everywhere in the 48 states.


    Any others in reefer having a frustrating time now?

    I'm planning on looking for another job during my next hometime.

    Phoenix,

    However I have been thinking about "moving" to a no income tax state.

    I'm based out of Arizona mainly because thats where my previous career ended. No real compelling reason to stay. I'm a single loner type.

    Id send a copy of that to AZDOT. They are blatantly telling you to run illegal.

    Just running between Phoenix & LA you should have no problem getting the miles you want. The amount of freight sitting in LA that needs to go East is off the charts, just ask @Dave_in_AZ , he will tell you.

    Well they haven't threatened me, I am competent enough to get my loads done on time. When I was legitimately late due to events outside my control, they rescheduled the deliveries.

    I realize knight is a mega and this message was probably directed at all the screwups they have.

    I am just sick of sitting around all the time and if they are loosing customers because of all the screwups, perhaps I should get a job elsewhere.
