THIRD TRUCKER CHECKS IN-Quite a few of us run for a few days and then sit for a few days. It is getting very hard to make money.
We just loaded out of La Porte TX, on Monday. There was bulker freight
ships in port, I did not see any container ships as we passed over the
large bridge on the 610. If we go back this week I will try for some
pictures. The place we loaded at had plenty of containers on site and the
mules were busy but that does not mean much as many companies use those
containers as regular trailers and mobile wharehouses. The car off load
yards were full, while two weeks ago or so we were in Portland OR. and
there was plenty of space at the Hyundai yard we drove past. We found it
more interesting that there was room at the truck stops in the late
afternoon in both cities. It would seem that there are less trucks being
sent to those cities as the freight is drying up. Usually if you are in a
port city if you do not find parking by noon you better pray your reload is
that day because it will suck trying to find parking.
