    Niagara?

    I don’t blame you though and admire your stance in this. Especially if an automated shipper is going to work with an automated broker.

    I see loads like that on Convoy frequently. Sometimes when I see a load I'm interested in but there is a timing conflict, I'll call them and let them know there is no way possible to get a load delivered within the appointment times they have listed. I think a lot of the large shippers post loads themselves and make the mistake. You would think there would be a program on the listing page to let them know it isn't going to work the way they're doing it.

    ...and a robot forklift loads your truck.

    Are there any human beings at that plant at all? LOL

    Exactly. There is one of those plants near me as well but they normally load in exactly 2 hours and if you do have to wait for a door then there is onsite parking. I hadn’t been there in a couple years I guess but always had humans before. Maybe things have changed by now.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Ran into it last week myself.

    Was wondering the same just this morning. Don't see any updates in the forums.
