    Oh, what happens when the receiving tank is just a little too full and you have to wait for product to be used before you can unload?

    2 New ones for the list. GFS Wyoming, Mi (7+hrs), Brighton, Mi (5+hrs). Common denominator is they both utilize Capstone for Lumpers.

    If we could have direct link between shippers and receivers there would be no disregard

    You think this is caused by brokers?

    That is caused by drivers and carriers putting up with it.

    LOL You guys are hilarious!
    They don't give two ****s about truckers. Never have. Never will and the worst part is that we as truckers are to dumb to join forces. That the cold hard truth.
    I don't like it either. But the sooner one realizes this the better off we truckers....

    I have forced two shippers to unload my truck for excessive detention. You want to talk about changing your attitude really quick.

    until we all do this or refuse to unload until detention is approved in writing, they will continue to pound us.
    I have threatened to take a load and put it in storage and then send them a bill for detention, storage, and the load pay.
    If they don't like it they can sue me while their load sits in storage and racks up fees.
    All kinds of people started calling my ph. It was off quick......

    Until we perform those kinds of stunts they will always laugh at our time.

    Try leaving a shipper with a security guard. Especially one that is telling you it will be 10 to 12 hours to load you. Suddenly those 10 hours become 10 minutes.

    And you are correct, more people have to be willing to do it. More times than not you have burned a relationship with a broker if you bail on a load that way

    Me too.

    I'll go to fresh or frozen, but not dry

    When I was pulling Magnum wagons I went to the dry side. Usually took 2-4 hours.
    With Van Wyk I've only been to the cold docks & it seems just as bad over there.

    I would say one of the worst ones that I've delivered to his Quaker in Lancaster Texas near Dallas or even one better than that is Walmart in Pageland South Carolina both of them equally terrible and I would say some of my favorites is General Pacific especially when it's a drop and hook
