A friend of mine drives for a 10-truck floral distribution company and makes regular runs from Ontario’s Niagara region to Chicago, Michigan, and western New Jersey. The picture he paints of his distribution manager would be amusing if it were not (most likely) true. The manager must be a fellow who grew up trucking in the ’60s, and still listens to eight-track tapes of Red Sovine and Dave Dudley. The routes are badly planned, trucks are frequently diverted en route, the vehicles are always breaking down, and all communication with drivers is done over the -telephone. And he doesn’t believe in ELDs. My friend says his boss will wait until the last possible moment to equip his fleet – and then only because he must.
