Warehouse appointments

Is it just me or are these large warehousing Companies in the USA and even here in Canada becoming more and more of a pain in the ass to deal with. If they can't give a loading or delivering appointments within 48 hours , I say they have a problem. Everyone is having trouble finding trucks and when we do find one last minute and then call for an appointment , we are regularly told that there are no appointments left for the week , this is on a Monday or Tuesday. Very frustrating and it seems to be getting worse all the time.

It might be the warehouses... It might be that you are just old and bitter and the Big M is but a distant memory.

Until people start saying "No - we won't deliver there anymore" they're not going to change.

When an appointment is required for one skid travelling 1500 miles and they give you a 30 minute window... that's ridiculous. The appointment thing has gotten out of hand. And when you do show on time... you sit for three hours is just insanity.

Having the same issues... these multi national companies are scrambling to cover loads, when you find them a last minute truck or you're the last minute truck due to a load cancelling, they can't get you in, or the delivery is pushed so far out there is no point in loading.

The Big M is still kicking , and yes , old and bitter dealing with all these donkey's.

Finally find a truck in LA on Monday and told by Lineage Santa Maria that they have no appointment times left for the week - such bullshit.
