VETERAN FRIENDLY RECRUITMENT

The military doesn’t just teach hard work, it demands it. And, for any business to win, there’s no substitute for hard work.

Veterans are to be examples to society by holding to the service’s core values: courage, discipline, respect for others, integrity, loyalty and selfless commitment.

TTS actively recruits veterans to join our team. Quick decision making, problem solving, and teamwork make our organization successful and we know veterans share these attributes!

Another snowstorm has closed a portion of two major highways in the Northwestern U.S., and a potentially high-impact winter storm will arrive in the Midwest tonight. Freight movement delays and travel trouble for truckers will continue in these regions over the coming days.
.
A high-impact winter storm will likely produce heavy snowfall, icy roads and blustery winds across portions of the Plains, Midwest/Great Lakes and New England. FreightWaves first reported on this potential storm a couple days ago, and the forecast hasn’t changed much since then.
.
The storm will crank up later today and tonight in the Plains, taking an east-northeast path into the Midwest-Great Lakes areas Friday and Saturday, followed by New England Saturday night and Sunday. Parts of southern Canada will also be hit hard by snow and wind.
.
Snow accumulations from this storm will range from 4 to 8 inches in many areas, with pockets of 10 to 12 inches.
.
Some of the worst freezing rain may occur along the I-70 corridor from eastern Kansas to Missouri, where ice buildup of one-quarter to one-third of an inch is possible. There may be a few localized spots with one-half of an inch of ice.
.
Drivers, be aware, stay prepared.

How many gallons of fuel does a container ship carry?
.
The amount of fuel carried on a container ship varies based on the engine capacity and size of the ship, which themselves are a function of the particular trading route the ship operates in and the optimal speed of the ship’s engine.
.
One of the largest container ships to call on the U.S., the CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin, carries approximately 4.5 million gallons of fuel oil. Ship fuel capacity is generally converted to volumetric measurement. The equivalent on the Ben Franklin would be close to 16,000 cubic meters.
.
The CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin is considered an ultra-large container ship, as it can carry the equivalent of 18,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in containers. Ultra-large container ships are more frequently used to bring goods from Asia to Europe.
.
Container ships that can go through the old Panama Canal locks are called Panamax ships and can generally hold up to 5,000 TEUs. Those vessels typically hold between 1.5 million and 2 million gallons of fuel.
.
Many container ships that call on the U.S. now are considered post-Panamax or New Panamax, named so because they are larger and can go through the newer, larger locks on the Panama Canal. Those ships are generally in the 8,000- to 14,000-TEU range. Ships in that size range can carry between 2.5 million and 3.5 million gallons of fuel.

What is Total Cost Per Mile for truckload carriers?
.
A wise trucker once said, “The only way to make money in trucking is to not spend it.” Truer words have never been spoken. This business is a game of razor-thin margins, and an infinite (and growing) number of risks and curveballs.
.
Total operating expenses in trucking (excluding very specialized operating models), range from extremes of $1.16 to $3.05 per mile when you simply take the best and worst from each of the categories in the table.
.
According to the Truckload Carrier Association’s TPP fleet data, a for-hire truckload carrier will average between 1,700-1,900 miles per truck per week throughout the year, except for December.
.
Average operating expenses for a carrier on a per mile basis is broken down in the table.

TTS took the truck load up to our Mt. Pleasant office/shop where we pulled out the the pallets, restored and banded the load up and reloaded it. 

RESULT
