The 5 Main Rules of Trucking

The 5 Main Rules of Trucking


  1. A load that starts out screwed up will stay screwed up until the trailer is empty.
  2. You can’t keep a good trailer… or get rid of a bad one.
  3. If you wash your truck, rain will most definitely fall from a clear blue sky.
  4. The harder the wind blows, the more likely it will be a headwind if you’re heavy or a side wind if you’re light.
  5. If you’re early, they won’t take you. If you’re late, they won’t take you. If you’re on time, they would’ve taken you yesterday.
