    Well I made my second company change. Nothing at all wrong with Rosedale just looking to try something different pulling reefers.
    Rowland is a small 40 truck outfit down in Dade City, Fl, running in the south east. Orientation was a couple hours just paper work and the other basics. My first run will be a three stop fish load from Tampa to Orlando, Jacksonville and ending in Greensboro, NC

    Officially completed my first turn. Got loaded Thursday morning around 0200 with a load of fish, had 0430 appt in Orlando and a 1400 appt in Jacksonville. Then ventured up to Greensboro where I waited six hours for four pallets to be unloaded so I guess that was my welcome to the reefer side of the industry lol.

    Reloaded at Sanderson Farms in St. Paul’s that delivers tomorrow morning in Orlando so i am at the house for the day. From there I’ll do the same run again leaving tomorrow night.

    Publix. All three stops were Publix. The Greensboro DC is brand new so they’re still working out some kinks I would assume

    If anyone was wondering I’m in a 17 T680. 714K on the dash but I believe It has been overhauled. Runs really good, shifts smoother than any other truck I’ve driven and even those were good. No sensors or buzzers so I won’t complain

    Drove to Orlando for no reason lol. They rescheduled the load but didn’t inform us apparently.

    First two stops weren’t to bad this morning for me atleast, had a 0430 appt in orl was out by 545 and 1000 in Jax, which today I learned to not trust them to call you for a door. So I ended up not getting in a door until 12 but they were done by about 1-115 so wasn’t to upset. Waiting on split now, then heading to Greensboro
     
    Speed_Drums Thanks this.

    Got out Greensboro in under five hours so that was nice. Picked up at Americold Benson yesterday morning. Got out of there within two and a half hours so wasn’t complaining. Made It back to the terminal last night. At the house for the day then deliver at Walmart at 0130 later tonight
