New Jersey lazy Longshoreman vs Truck Drivers at GLOBAL TERMINAL
Pier Rat Truckers make $.00 PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR and Longshoreman make $ 40.00 per hr.. to mayor Booker of NEWARK of NJ and mayor BLOOMBERG of NEW YORK... Take a look at our ports before you guys agree on the clean air truck program. you could have new trucks but if you have lines like this trying to get into the pier you will always have pollution ..... the carrieres , the brokers and port employees (longshoreman) are the one's making money.... it's called deregulation .. a poor trucker is trying to make a living and now we are forced to buy a new truck when we don't make money to begin with ...if our trucks pass federal emissions and inspection does PORT AUTHORITY mayor Booker and Bloomberg have more power than the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to make there own law ??? Where is our President of the United States of America ???? This is the Downfall of America ,,, companies move there products to be made in other countries .... the freight charges are high but not because of truck drivers , we get pennies on the dollar as a Owner Ops.. look at the video it does not lie ..
Truckstop drama at the pilot in Virginia. This place is always a cluster.
http://www.lifeasatrucker.com/drivers-lounge.html Truck stops are a truckers home away from home. Some times there is a little drama amongst impatient stressed out drivers. Usually it's all on the CB radio but sometimes they get a little silly like this. Both of them could have prevented this but neither wanted to be the one to stop.
Trucking in New Jersey lost and confused at Port Elizabeth - GPS?
http://www.lifeasatrucker.com/newjerseytrucking.html Trucking through New Jersey lost and confused at Port Elizabeth. A GPS would be nice but many companies still don't provide a GPS. Good old fashion map reading will get you to the area but often calling the shipper, receiver or broker is how you will get directions. The problem there is that not all of the time do you talk to someone who else capable of giving good directions. Also, are you doing what you need to in order to use the directions like writing down ALL of the important details. The clown in the video forgot how many lights to count. This left him unclear as to what street to turn on because the street name was slightly different that it was given to him. So just as with life, getting good directions and being able to use them is a skill that gets you to the destination more effectively. It helps you navigate more smoothly to get to where you want to go. How are your directions? How well are you taking notes? Is your system effective? Are you committed to arriving at your destination?
