  • Well, let’s hope this guy can straighten out the distribution centre at Home Hardware‘s warehouses because every load should be pelletized now that the E log systems are in drivers cannot be sitting around for hours, hand bombing freight off trailers. And another thing is instead of them running their loads directly to the stores, especially the long-haul ones they should be having switching points. They should have trucks out of Winnipeg switching with the guys out of Wetaskiwin or out of Saint Jacobs this way driver get some more rest not run out of ours. Driver will get more Hometime. Thank you.
