    North Baltimore, Oh

    Can park overnight, petro/loves close by to get something to eat/shower. U can do this after u check in with security, and they will let u back in. They also have a restroom for u to use, and vending machines, if u dont want to leave and come back.

    Only bad thing is that if u have a dog with u, u have to walk them outside of the perimeter, they let u out, and let u in to do this.

    Abbiamo Pasta Co in Casselton, ND. I arrived when they open up at 8am. The shipping guy got to work at 8, he walked to my truck, said good morning, and told me to back into dock 1, and bring my license, and sign the bills. At 8 25, I was loaded with 39 pallets and 43,000 lbs headed to Iowa. This place, you can either spend the night there, or there s a truck stop across the street, or a hotel with truck parking.

    Fast forward to Iowa, Marzetti Frozen Pasta, Altoona, IA. I had a 0700-1500 delivery window for tomorrow. I checked in, I waited about 10 minutes to see if they would unload me tonight. They came out, broke my seal, and back into the dock. 20 minutes later I was empty, and they allowed me to stay on property over night.

    Cavendish Farms- Jamestown, ND. I arrived 9pm for a 11am appointment. Checked in and was told that they may get to me once they get the trucks ahead of me loaded, 6 total. So around 1230 am I got a knock on the door to back into dock 1 once he left. Change of plans, dock 2 now. I got into dock 2 at 110am and at 137am I was loaded, sealed, and parked to finish out my break.

    Good things about this place: 1. Can park overnight. 2. Quick loading 3. They bring the bills to the truck and you sign them 4. Have a scale on site

    WCCO belting- Wahpeton ND. Probably one of the nicest shippers in my 18 yrs. When I pull up to get loaded, they always come outside and tell me to back right in as soon as I get there. Usually within 20-30 minutes, I m loaded and have Customs papers ready for me and heading back to Grand Forks to drop the trailer

    Multi-Wall Packaging in Gary, Indiana. Very quick unload and the guy respects our time. Once unloaded he was like "Ok now get off my dock, there's trucks waiting behind you!"

    Lost Coast Brewery in Eureka, Ca. I missed the pickup cutoff time due to prior load. I called them and asked was there anywhere nearby to park overnight. The lady was super nice and told me that I could park on their property and gave me the gate code to get on the premises.

    Well, the next morning, I checked in at 0800, and at 0820 I was loaded, and on my way. Super nice people.
