    I am mainly talking about the Atlanta Americold. Been to several others that were fine. Only one other I can think of that was horrid was somewhere in Pennsylvania, was stuck there for a day. Atlanta Americold was usually my run home with that company so had to deal with those corrupt idiots repeatedly.

    LOL...you get FINED by the customer???

    How about this: "Your load is here. Get it off my trailer ASAP or you pay horrific detention. If you have a problem with that, it goes back to the shipper."

    Man, if I ever leave LTL, I'll never pull a box again. I've no idea how y'all put up with this nonsense load after load.

    Yup, Americold in Crest Hill Illinois was a pleasure to work with the other day. Would be great if the company would hold all their facilities to the same standards as the ones that are good at their jobs.

    If I'm not an hour early, I consider myself late. That generally prevents most issues with shippers and receivers delaying me and then saying I was late.
