Here we sit in Monroe, MI at a Home Depot transit facility where we were supposed to pick up an empty trailer. This is a little game all the companies play. Since we lost our trailer because of the truck problems we need s new one before we go to the next shipper. Last night they told us to go to a UPS facility very close to where we were to get our next load. Then over night they changed that to a Costco. They would not give up the empty trailers they had and so then we got sent here. Every trailer that might be empty is full of pallets. So now we sit. We were supposed to be at the shipper for a live load over an hour ago.

Ah the efficiency of the logistics business.

We just got directions to go to Detroit for an empty. Keep your fingers crossed.
