    And you know if that guy wrecks and people are hurt of killed that shipper is going to be one of the deep pockets that the lawyers will be going after.

    Two of our major accounts are lumber mills. If you don't tie things down right, you don't get your paperwork until the problem is corrected.
    That's not to say that they're super picky or unduly critical, they're not. But if you load a full trailer of expensive finished lumber without tying it down, tarp it, and then throw one strap over each unit with no gut wrapper you're not going anywhere.
    There's an old time lumber truck driver who's a tallyman for the shipping department and he looks at every load.
    I'm not in favor of shippers telling us how to secure our loads but judging by some of the loads I've seen maybe somebody should be educating these guys.

    I suppose they're not technical enough to have 2 ELD systems?

    Im thinking that load is a pretty good indicator that they may be sharing half a brain between the two of'm.

    They have all the signs, it's not their responsibility. Liability covered.


    But I agree.

    I see what might be a fairly substantial freight claim. :biggrin_25520:
