    It is designed to cut down on personal time off (pto) They are figuring on 45 minutes to get in, get bills, swap out and get gone...anything else will be off duty so as to cut down pto paid out.

    Operational Readiness Enhancement Integrator - synthesizes available data from applicable parts of the logistics chain and supplements this with telecommunications-derived information in order to make real-time decisions that result in a synergistic effect for maximal attainment of business objectives!

    Cargo Transportation Furtherance Specialist - takes kinetic action while maintaining a keen observational awareness of the surrounding environment in order to deliver commodities to the consignee.

    One is a dispatcher the other is a truck driver, I think of more maybe at a later time. Good luck chuck n' pay attenshun in skool!

    As I've been both a dispatcher and driver, I'm copying this for my resume.

    Dude if you can bust that off, they’ll be promoting you to the big boy office! You even used the word ‘synergies’!

    Today I got to my second pick.

    You can to drive two blocks around the back of the building and check in.

    Okay.

    Wait a half hour they’re on lunch.

    Wow we didn’t know you were coming today.

    Drive around to where you first were and they’ll be a truck pulling out in 5 minutes.

    And by 5 minutes they meant 35.

    Almost three hours since the initial arrival. Garbage vendor that plays dumb games.
    Two places to be at to check in and get loaded should count as two stops, IMO...

    And I’m the one who has to justify dwell time??

    Not to get on here and whine and complain but I had a boss once who treated his drivers like they were the problem and I’m starting to get that feeling here.
     
    foggy Thanks this.

    roc should have pulled you out after 2 hours. i get vendors ask me all the time how many hours i got left. i tell them it depends on how fast they load me.

    Half way through being loaded?

    Probably not.

    Also, the few times I’ve called the ROC on weekends?

    Infinite phone ringing with no answer. No joke.

    Last week I firmly believe that if I hadn’t gotten a hold of my office on my EWW they’d have kept me wandering forever. EWW is Sunday and I ended up with 640 miles on that day.

    Cutting it VERY close to not getting home on time.

    Something is really broken down there.
     
    foggy and truckdriver31 Thank this.
