It feels like forever since we have seen blue skies or a normal looking sun. With wildfires raging across BC, thick smoke has covered the province and has reached all the way to parts of Manitoba.
With air quality advisories reaching dangerous levels many are wondering how what that danger actually means to them, how to protect themselves, and when will the smoke and haziness end. All of us here at T&P Trucking also wanted to know so we did some research and this is what we found.
If you have ever visited our Langley location, you would have noticed an old yellow ramp sitting in the middle of our loading yard. A few years ago we decided to upgrade it with proper safety railings and a new paint job, but we knew one day it would have to go.
Though that ramp served us well for over 8 years, we were finding that lately, it was needing regular repairs. The frequency of repairs had increased to the point that it needed some type of service every few months. Last month we decided it had ramped its last load. On that note, the whole T&P team is excited to have a brand new addition to our yard – a beautiful, custom built, loading ramp.
We will be mostly closed on Monday, July 2nd in observance of Canada Day. If you require any assistance you can still reach us as there will be some support staff available.
Many truck drivers today may remember a time when the only way to communicate with loved ones while on the road was to make a phone call from the next roadside diner or use a pay phone at a gas station. Thankfully, the era of the cell phone was soon to arrive, giving everyone the opportunity to keep regular contact with the office and loved ones alike.
Fast forward to today and our phones are much more than just a way to communicate with each other. If you have browsed through your app store lately, you probably noticed there seems to be an application for almost every type of job or industry. As this article is on a trucking website, we thought it made sense to showcase a few of the apps truck drivers love and that can help make life in the trucking industry easier.
We hope everyone had a fun and safe new year. With the ever-changing road conditions, sometimes the speed we drove last week is now too dangerous this week. It can be difficult for some drivers to correctly gauge which speed is the safest for current road conditions, but it just got a little bit easier!
With the ELD deadline approaching on December 18th of this year, we are happy that our early efforts find a supportive ELD provider has paid off. Without having to deal with device shortages and a waiting list, T&P Trucking is happy to announce that we will be utilizing the full support of Switchboard Inc for their electronic logging, GPS, IFTA, safety and document management services!
Whether you have been driving truck for the past 30 years or you have recently started to drive truck 6 months ago, we are all about to enter into a whole new world of trucking. Unless you have been living in a cave, you have seen the non stop flow of news articles, Facebook posts, and YouTube videos all discussing the facts and opinions about the implementation of the ELDs and the coming December 18, 2017 deadline. Since we are so close to this EL’D-day’ what can we expect from traffic authorities and their handling of truck drivers and their respective companies?
