    Re-reading this, jogged my memory about a shipment we had a couple years ago. IT was a split hazardous\non hazardous load.
    We only got part of the load from our interline partner. And my dispatcher wanted to ship just THAT part of the load.
    I don't remember if we got the Haz part or the non-Haz part, but it got left behind. I wasn't going to ship a partial when it included hazardous.
     
    MACK E-6 Thanks this.

    Hey, I pop in here from time to time. Thought I would extend a professional courtesy.

    If any of you guys are from the Chicagoland area and are comfortable teaming, UPS in Hodgkins is hiring a bunch of team feeder drivers between now and the end of the year.

    Message me with any questions. My availability can be spotty at best. Haha

    It’s amazes me when I find unmanifested hazmat in a trailer that should of had placards. I bring it up to supervision and they just print me a bill.

    That’s like when a chemical tote gets billed as simply 1 skid, and some idiot doesn’t bother flying the ID placards.

    Its a great night when they shut down GW Bridge when you're past the point of escape as you approach the northbound toll booths. Made it back to the yard with 3 minutes left on my clock after sitting on the bridge for an hour and a half.

    See, I wouldn't think that was a really good night. I would think that's terrible. But to each their own. -_-
