Fleet Manager, Indianapolis, IN - July 18, 2016
On a typical day I would come in and ran my board to see where the drivers were at and check for any potential service issues. Then I would make calls to the shippers and receivers for directions , making appointments for P/U and deliveries for the loads and drivers with the shipping and receiving dept. of our customers, My management,area planners, other fleet manager/dispatchers were easy to work with, I feel it was because all of them had the trucking experience and I had worked with them at the 2 prior companies I had worked for. My drivers were more relaxed to work with because they were regional drivers and would leave out from their homes on Monday and got home either Friday night or Sat am. so I would say that my Management and co-workers and drivers was the most enjoyable part the job. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the shipping and receiving dept. of the customers and doing payroll for the drivers.
