Unloading Procedure

Today we had a Mercer Contractor empty in Fort Bliss, TX.  Our driver witnessed another driver from another carrier unchain his load before backing up to the dock.  As the driver backed up to the dock, he had to abruptly engaged his brakes, and he succeeded at unloading himself.  I know that I don’t need to worry about Mercer driver’s making this mistake, but I do need to make you aware that if any drivers are at Fort Bliss, and someone sees the driver unchain before backing up to the dock, the driver will be escorted off of the base, and never be allowed to return.

    I guess I would have said leave a couple chains on you don’t know if they’ll have you move to another location or not. We’ve got to help each other or we are lost
