    Hi, I have a question. I'm to start orientation in Haslet, Tx for regional intermodal position Tuesday. I have a question. I asked the recruiter and she tells me I can't idle below 90 degrees. I've looked in the threads, but the posts are all 2017 or older regarding this. Do the trucks still have sensors preventing idling?
    Thank you for your help.

    If your a rookie and don't have any
    Other choices, welcome to trucking at a mega.
    If your a expierenced driver and choose
    Schneider, you deserve to sweat all day long.

    Yes they do but I think Schneider eased up a bit on the policy.
    @gentleroger will know

    Trucks with apu/epu will idle at 90.

    Trucks without will idle at 70.

    In practice most trucks will idle at 65.

    Buy hand warmers, find the temperature sensor, apply liberally.

    So do you loose money for idling or have to come to terminal for re-education....?

    We don't do that anymore. "Out back" is either full of equipment we haven't been able to dupe someone into buying yet or has been leased out to pad our quarterly reports.

    That and the or group is to busy dealing with people who can't couple.

    In all seriousness no one looks at idle time anymore - if you hit the fuel economy standard's you're good. I'm 1 mpg over standard, so it is not hard to hit.
