The transportation industry has it’s own ‘lingo’. If you can’t speak the language or have any idea what a trucker is talking about when he says he’s bob-tailing or he’s over on his tandems you’ll have a difficult time in this business until you’re familiar with the terminology. How much weight can a trucker legally have on his tandems do you know? Or on his steering axle? Or what are considered bad states and locations to send a driver because it will be difficult to find them a load out of that area and they will have a lot of deadhead miles to get to a more profitable location.
This is the type of on the job information we compile into our course, to prepare you for every day situations like this in the logistics industry, and in a demanding “spot market” industry these tools will give you the competitive edge to make quick decisions that will earn you better profits.
