    LOL....
    You're body will never be use to that shift , what happens is : your immune system will be weaker and tho you might be getting enough sleep during the day you will always feel tired & drained
    This will also make a young man look like an old man after a few yrs
    I believe, God created us to operate during day light hrs

    Less than truckload.

    FFE LTL. 5 stops. two in jersey, three in NYC load in Lancaster TX.

    Better to have this and that collected and stuffed into one trailer rather than 5 seperate trucks hauling 2,3 or 5 pallets each, you can do that with pickup trucks. Throw em on the back. Be faster, cheaper and lighter me thinks.

    Don't over think Consolidated. Your post threatens a can of worms when you consider all the possibilities you could have sitting in a transfer outfit collecting a number of pallets going all over the city, state or several states over to be dispersed all over there.

    I did ok, but it's a pain. I rather you load me solid truckload on monday and stand aside for LA on friday morning. That is where the money is.

    Im a testament to night ops. I ran at night because you could finally run your full 600 miles without interference from traffic. I would sleep during the day where possible. Rush hour in any city was not my problem.

    God has indeed created you to get up with the sun and give him glory and praise for a new day gifted to you. When the sun is down, it's time to give thanks and get some rest you need to rebuild your body in a number of ways that are SO important to life and health.

    I never slept unless the body shut down. In my later years I became much more against driving when tired and I think it's been 15 years now since my last big push without sleeping.. I can still tabulate the accumulated damage in my mind and body from all those decades of not sleeping. I do alot of sleeping now. But prefer to live in the day before the grave.
