The Ugly in Trucking
Unfortunately, there is ugly in trucking just as there is ugly in every other work place. Shippers and receivers usually could care less about the drivers never ending rush to get loaded or unload as fast as possible. Sometimes, they even try to get free labor out of us.
Sometimes our very own company treats us as if we are robots behind the wheel. Some companies won't even route drivers through the house as though they think we are too stupid to know they do have freight going through there.
Managers, dispatchers and brokers give us bad information and let the drivers do research for the correct information to make the delivery. (as if we don't have enough to do!lol) When we call in to give the dispatcher correct info they don't put it in the system. Instead, they will give the next driver the same incorrect info. The cycle continues.
