    What is the average amount of time you spend at docks?

    How often do you experience detention?

    Do you notice a difference regarding detention with the ELDs now in effect? Are shippers/consignees improving the time spent at docks since implementation?

    Shippers,and consignee' will notice a difference when truck owners start charging them for holding their driver,and equipment basically hostage for hours on end. Until then? Most will just blame the ELD...

    NOTHING is the only change.

    Here's some info from those that created the e.l.d. mess:

    As WE well know, Refrigerated shippers/receivers are on the worst end of holding hostages.

    e.l.d. is a tool and is just as responsible for a Combo being detained on the front and back end of a run as you are for the bugs hitting your windshield.
