    Not sure if anyone here has been to the Metl Span location in Lewisville TX.

    If you get sent here to expect to be here a while, I have been ther 3 times and each time I was there over 8 hours. This place is bad about ordering trucks to haul products that are not even produced yet. The last time I was there they told me I had to be there at 0600 to get loaded. The shipping manager did nto show up until 0630, and they started loading me at 0700. About 0730 the shipping manager came up to me and said "Your not going to believe this, we still have to make 1 item that goes on this shipment" He further told me it would not be ready until after 2pm..

    This place makes those panels that are used for large walkin freezers. So I basiclly had 3/4 of the load on my trailer, and was waiting on the last 1/4. I sat there for 7 hours waiting on the last piece and these guys refused to pay detention.

    I hope I never get sent back there.

    Here is what you should do, the next time you do get sent there. Call ahead, and find out when the product will actually be ready for loading. That way there you can adjust your time so you don't have to wait so long.. You can hit the TA on 35N exit 471 and wait until your load is actually ready. figure Lewisville is only 20 min from there..
