Is organization important?
I was sitting in the office last month and listened to one of the dispatchers as she talked to a customer. It seems that the trucker with his load had just called and said, “I can’t deliver tomorrow and I’m leaving on vacation the next day. You’ll have to wait until next week to get your load.”
Yes, this trucker planned on parking his trailer somewhere with a load still on it.
The customer was rightfully furious and called the office. “If my freight isn’t on my dock tomorrow, I’m calling the police and reporting the load stolen – with the trucker’s name.”
The dispatcher agreed with the shipper and called the trucker. “Want to spend your vacation in jail?” she asked.
Of course, the trucker delivered on time.
Sometimes things happen. But I don’t think that’s what happened here. I think this trucker just didn’t plan well – he wasn’t organized enough.
