TD17: Truck Dispatchers

Okay. I admit. I promised a post on dispatchers a few weeks back. Then I promptly forgot. I’m getting forgetful in my old age. So before I forget again, here it is. A blog post on. . . what was it? Oh yea. Dispatchers. Dispatchers. Fleet Managers. Fleet Supervisors. Whatever creative names they want to […]

TD16: A Miracle In Indiana

I’m a believer in God and I believe in miracles.  They are around us everyday.  According to the laws of physics, a bumblebee’s wings are too small to lift it off the ground; yet they do the job well enough to make you run away screaming like a little girl.  People are miraculously saved from […]

TD11: The Insanity Of Truck Idling Laws

I know I said my next post would be about dispatchers, but I’ve got something fresh on my mind; mainly because it’s happening right now.  So please humor me. I’m guessing from the title that you can tell which of side of the argument I take when it comes to truck idling laws.  First off, […]

TD10: When Company Policy Overrides Common Sense

Anyone who has heard me speak of trucking knows that I always recommend the large national carriers to new drivers. I’ve got many reasons for doing so, but that still doesn’t mean that they’re perfect. Sometimes they leave me shaking my head like a bobblehead doll in a monster truck. Take this morning as an […]
