OPERATING EFFICIENCY. AN ESTIMATE OF PICKUP AND DELIVERY STOP TIME FOR A LESS-THAN-TRUCKLOAD MOTOR CARRIER

This article discusses the components of pickup and delivery stop time for drivers of less-than-truckload motor carriers. Some of the conclusions of the authors' study are: paperwork requirements comprise as much as one quarter of a driver's stop time; analysis shows an additional 4.0 minutes at a pickup stop if the shipment is loose rather than on a pallet; and for drivers of hazardous materials shipments, there are significant additional activities required by the driver.
