Trip Planning Tips for Truckers

We cannot stress the importance of a  well planned trip. A well planned trip eases the stress of the day, raises a trucker’s comfort level and becomes a more profitable trip overall.

 

In the past a driver would plan his/her trip without the use of any devices. Fast forward to today a driver must plan around the electronic logbook and adhere to hours of service regulations.

 

Here are some tips to help plan your trip:

 

  1. Check the mileage of the delivery point
  2. See if you have enough hours to get to your destination
  3. Plan out your route, where you will stop and eat, where you will sleep, than see how many miles you have to make a day to be on time
  4. If you do not think you will have enough time to get where you are going, call the dispatcher
  5. Remember that safely is your top concern.

Good trip planning can mean the difference between successful run or a failed run. Make sure you take the time to plan ahead. Without proper planning obstacles can get in your way, such as,  becoming stranded in a storm, lost in a bad neighbourhood, or running out of hours to get to where you need to be.
