    Pipe dream stuff I know. But, if YOU were updating rules about receiving truckers at a facility, what changes would you want? Here's my list:
    1. Must have restroom facilities available for drivers. No exceptions.
    2. Must be physically configured where drivers do not have to use any portion of a public road to maneuver into a dock.
    3. Must give driver an ETA for completion upon check in.
    4. Must notify driver at a minimum of every 2 hours current status and ETA for completion.
    5. Anytime ETA for completion changes by more than 30 minutes, drivers must be notified of new ETA.
    6. Must have visible signage at all entry points of facility clarifying where truck entrance is located and where driver check in is located.
    7. Must have signage at entry point if lumper services are in use.
    8. Must have staging area parking and do not require driver to park on a public road to check-in or wait at a facility.

    Just get me in and out in under 2 hours and let us use the bathroom. Knock on wood but I've been on a roll the last few months. Only got stuck for more than 2hrs a couple of times.

    Those are good. Also, must let drivers leave the facility at will while truck is being loaded/unloaded.

    No more "come in when you see the green light " nonsense. Customers must call.

    No more using fist/hammer to bang on driver doors.
     
    Six9GS Thanks this.

    Single toilet in a single bathroom is like my heaven. ETA upon completion would be awesome as well. And I wouldn't mind them asking me if I want to help, to get it done faster as well. I like manual labor, I would help out everywhere I could
