    Yep, no touch freight is just that...you don't touch it. You back into the dock, take your paperwork inside, and they unload you. When they finish, you leave.
    The vast majority of shippers/consignees don't want you on their dock or in their warehouse, mainly for insurance reasons.

    So if that is the case, then nothing is out of pocket? meaning from yourself or does the company your haul for takes care of the bill?

    The only time there's loading/unloading fees is if there's a lumper involved. Those are mostly just at grocery warehouses and your company will either have a charge account set up with them or issue a ComCheck to you for the fee. If you work for an o/o or a small fleet, you may have to pay out of pocket and be reimbursed.

    No touch can also be a lot of drops and hooks.

    Trans Am, just my choice. less negative posted, which ,means they're either not bad, or their drivers are to busy runnin' to B****.
