Deeply Challenging, Steep Learning Curve. Sastifying.
Transportation Coordinator (Former Employee) – Texas – December 10, 2017
Get ready, as a TC, to be on your "A" game, keep your cool, and do everything you can to beat the learning curve. This is essential!
A typical day will include accepting transport assignments that you can provide service for on time, with HOS in mind. You are to also make sure that the chemical, acid, or fuel that your driver is hauling will be compatible with the trailer you will assign him. You will also need to ensure that the driver has required training for all chemicals and company he is hauling for.You will provide customer service as you work with the company hiring you and your driver. Monitor HOS and workload on TMW/PeopleNet. Work with other terminals to reduce deadhead, and productive backhauls. You may work on driver settlement issues.
