    Why are the gates closed during operating hours? Asinine

    Why would a entrance gate side be closed while the exit gate side(right beside it) is open all day? Asinine

    Why would a terminal with a entrance window want you to hand them the paperwork when you enter but can't give you yours? This slows down the freight because it makes drivers walk inside after hooking up. Asinine and lazy office workers

    All kinds of office people but can't call a residential to let them know when their delivery is NOT coming. They barely call to schedule as it is.

    Do you realize how much theft this prevents? I'll bet they don't have many wheels stolen.

    Another classic move is a relay set broke down. Lets just waste money and pay a guy to break it down, then pay another guy to come in 15 min later and hook it back up. I wish there was some type of communication device that could be utilized...

    When you're dispatched to a terminal with a set of empties and when you get there your hook card is a set of empties back home....

    Some drivers need the money to pay for their new toys. That’s why they break relay sets.

    I hear you can pay for a Bayliner with weekend trips.

    I've seen equipment broke down out in front of the terminal and the driver is waiting on breakdown to show up. We have a shop....

    Even better. I witnessed a road driver @ ABF in Indy bring a set to Indy from our Kansas terminal. 2 hours later dispatch handed the driver his trip sheet without the bills. Because he left with an empty set to RETURN to Kansas. And this happened more than once. I understand having to stage equipment. But to pay a driver for a Kansas flip, the fuel to do it, & wear & tear on the equipment, defies logic. von.
