    Have any of you reefer drivers ever brought produce to the New England Produce Center in Everett, Massachusetts?


    I grew up a few cities away and always saw many OTR trucks, and reading posts and seeing so many drivers posting from everywhere in the USA I was just curious.

    Thanks

    I may have years ago, can't remember. I do remember delivering MandM Mars candy loads to Norwood, Ma. quite a few times. (early 80's)

    I did, but like Allow Me, it was so long ago I do not remember much. I think they charged us to get in, and to back in, but that may have been Chelsea.

    i go to the the produce center a couple of times a year...every time they try to charge me to get in i tell them to go screw and drive right in..never had a problem when i've done that.they think they can get away with it because most drivers will pay..next time you go there just laugh at them and drive right on in.,
