Importance of Drivers time with ELD's - TIME IS MONEY

 Skinner Transfer Corp decided to go with Electronic Logs a in 2011  and was very successful and lost very little production with good  management in key areas. One of the key areas was drivers time  management. Drivers and driver managers must really focus on time to  maximize the drivers production each day. Each minute of the drivers day  counts more than ever so everything the driver does while on duty will  be extremely important now more than ever. 

Cargo securement is  part of most drivers daily duties so the better a driver can  secure their load in a shorter amount of time can add to a drivers  production for the day, week, month and year. Cargo Strategies LLC has  the perfect solution for a lot of drivers to secure freight very quickly  and efficiently. The SS Pallet Hook by Cargo Strategies LLC is a very  easy to carry easy to use quick securement device that works in many  applications. The SS Pallet Hook is very affordable and has many time  saving uses for the driver. It is another good tool to help the driver  be more productive and help save time that is so important with hours of  service and ELD's.

Imagine if a driver has a questionable load  and just throws a strap behind the load to satisfy the DOT and the  driver has one of the rear skids tip into the other one. the driver  arrives at the receiver, the driver and receiver see the problem, the  driver now has to wait while the receiver looks for their supervisor to  see what to do about it. Sound familiar??? Right, the drivers clock is  running and finally several hours later the driver is unloaded after  they had to get approval for the driver or someone to restack the tipped  pallet. But now the driver can not move because they RAN OUT OF HOURS.  This all could have been avoided if the driver had the SS Pallet Hooks  and took just 2 minutes at the shipper to properly secure the load.   Thankfully this driver only lost half a day production for the week  because if the driver had a hard appointment they may not have got  worked in to the next day or next week costing days of lost production  and maybe several miles having to run the load back and forth.

Don't  underestimate how important it is for the driver to have the proper  securement tools and be taught how to properly secure freight. The SS  Pallet Hook has been very instrumental in time management for Skinner  Transfer Corp along with saving several thousands of dollars each year  by not paying freight claims.

ELD 's , Hours of Service, and Cargo Securement - Like it or not they are all controlled by law and we must abide. 

SS  Pallet Hook, Cargo Hook, Cargo securement, that simple! Every driver  that uses any type of logistic strap should at least have a couple of  these hooks on hand to use when needed. They are affordable and light  weight and simple to use and really come in handy for many uses.

LTL  and Cartage carriers will get daily use from these and will save lots  of time by having a way to secure freight and cargo out of the way while  loading and other freight to avoid having to criss cross through cities  and towns due to having other freight and cargo in the way.
