    I sure hope that they're smart enough to address the damages that happen on the docks. Running over the corners of freight with the forklifts and carelessness probably causes as many damages as loading trailers.
    I've always felt that the majority of damages are caused by carelessness, bad attitudes, and the lack of perspective as to how that piece of freight connects a company to it's customers.

    To some nuckleheads that I've worked with over the years, I think that their philosophy was......."The value of a good customer is soooo over-rated".

    I sure hope they tell us to make sure we use the racks and strap up everything.I can't even image where I would be now if I did not attend the 347 re-training classes I have been to since I started here.Repetitiveness must be a good thing cause we have our damages down to only 100 million dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    we had so much damage back at vitran because the company treated people like crap so nobody gave a crap. alot of damage they only had to pay pennies on the dollar or didnt pay at all. some customers told me they've not been paid yet and it's going on 4 mths. XPO better not screw the dock or drivers over, they could sink the ship if pushed.

    Another problem is you can load a piece of freight on a trailer and somebody else comes along and moves it or re-works trailer and their name is not attached to that piece of freight you loaded.

    That would be the only way to figure out who does what, and than they would need hundreds of people to go back through video and try to find the exact time it was damaged:regretful:

    remember it all about cube and cut times and now the linehaul gods are only giving you so many trailer per FACs no extra allowed. I have loaded trailer and have decked everything on it and only had 60 cube on it I can not help it when the skids are only 15 to 20 inches high and have DO NOT STACK on them.
