    Yea that’s nice but what about the first two hrs? I’m getting sick of giving my time away for free how about 15min that’s fair we as an industry Need to stand up and tell shippers and receivers that are time is worth something just like your product that we haul for you and I don’t think that you would give me your product for free so quit asking the trucking industry to give our product for free! strives to maintain an open forum for reader opinions.
