    If your regular bid is under 400 miles but you double turn it and it puts you well over the 400 mile mark are you required to work the dock when you get back if your 2nd loads aren't ready?????

    If your second loads aren’t ready, then yes...because you’ve only made the one trip so you’re still under the required 400 miles at that point.

    In short, you work what you bid. If you bid a run with dock work, you'll be working the dock. Obviously running a double turn will minimize this but yes.

    We had an issue here with doubles/triples to another center. The route for doubles was under 400 miles round trip and the route for triples was over 400 miles. Verdict is that you work the dock because it's on the bid and no guarantee of running triples in either or both directions to make it a 400+ mile run.

    Do you fellers back yonder, east of the Rockies have bids over 400 miles with mandatory dock work?

    No, under 400 is mandatory and over 400 is optional

    If you opt not to, do you sit for free?

    If you opt not to work the dock then you get no delay time...so yes, you sit for free.

    Hard to believe what is required of a line driver today, if I was still working I would quit and go back to my original MOS.

    Don't you get delay if your run is more than 240 miles one way ?

    And therein lies the rub....
    All of these rules were set up when it was AF, all 65mph states. A driver from SAC going to KTL only goes 217 miles but in a 55mph state. The SAC driver actually has more wheel time but is penalized.

    No, you just sit until they tell you your trailers are ready...

    Dunno, been awhile for me.
    Back in my day it was under 425 (total) mandatory, 426-475 optional, and over 476 not required.
    Maybe someone else can answer your question.

    If I run to KNX-218 mi there is no delay. If I run to RCH-284 mi or ATL 243 mi I get delay.

    Exactly...RCH & ATL are both over 476 miles total, KNX falls into the “no delay” category but usually only the last bid gets delayed (no pay), if at all.
