    My father-in-law was a peddle hand for them. He retired in 1986.

    LTL City driver usually, but not always. We peddled Frito Lay trailers to every little town in America as a road job.
    Hand(driver) that peddles(delivers) freight(often LTL freight).
    Peddle is a term that some of us “Older Hands” refer to delivering multiple stops in a day.
    The older I get, the less likely I will deliver multiple stops, hence just one of the many reasons my dispatcher occasionally refers to me as a Primadona instead of a Peddle Hand. I am OK with his nickname as long as I get one stops loads. Lol

    Freight peddler. LTL is for youngsters. Remember each driver had his hand truck personalized.

    They locked them up at CF and would not be happy if someone tried to use it when they were on vacation.
