Speeding VS Late Delivery

Look at the behavior of 2 drivers who passed identical routes.

The route is 500 miles long per the driver. Pick up Time is at 08:00 AM, Delivery Time is at 19:00 PM.

The first driver came to Pick up at 07:30 AM to check-in on time, use his free time for personal belongings in the truck and body-exercise before driving.

The second driver was late to Pick up and got into the crowd and arrived at Pick up at 08:20 AM. Negative points are charged to the company because the driver is late, the Broker will refuse 20-30% of the price of the load. The driver is frustrated because he’s late, he feels bad.


The first driver finished with Pick up at 08:50 AM.

The second driver has a problem because he arrived late, the Facility does not want to receive it for loading, the Broker calls the driver and the Tracking Team 20 times, the Tracking Team calls the driver and the Broker. Everyone is nervous because still pick up can not start. Finally, Pick up ends at 09:30 AM. The driver is already tired.

The first driver rides relaxed followed traffic signs, occasionally reports to the Broker and the Tracking Team to give them information where it is currently.

The second driver gets another 10 calls from Broker and the Tracking Team, he was informed that due to his delay to Pick up will be a big problem at the delivery, although he is nervous and tired, he is deciding to speed up and try to arrive on time. He drives aggressively, drives over the speed limit with harsh braking and harsh accelerating. In this way, the driver thinks that he gets on time, and in fact loses even more time, all experienced drivers know that any braking and re-acceleration takes a lot of time and that if you want to save time, you should drive constantly with the same speed and without sudden changes in speed.

The first driver takes a break at 3:00 PM, that is, after 6 hours of driving, because he is not sure if he will be in congestion in the middle of the road and does not want to risk a missed break violation. He drove 360 miles. He backs on the road at 03:40 PM.

The second driver is aware that he is late, but he feels very bad, Broker and the Tracking Team have called him again to take the information about his location. He tries to hit the time, still aggressive, and still with speeding. The driver is thinking why this happening to him again, although he is tired, he trying to focus on passing as many vehicles as he wants to arrive on time, at 5:45 PM he notices that he is in a violation missed rest break, the next Truck Stop is for 20 miles, gets a call from the Safety Team and gets annoyed even more because he made another mistake. It’s finally 415 miles out when he decided to take a break. The driver is complaining that he was starting to work today, he thinks that he shouldn’t do anything today, he still does not see his mistake, he thinks he is hated by a broker who calls him because he is stopped, thinks he is hated by Tracking and Safety because they call him. He is beginning to feel a headache, he is nervous, his legs are painful. He promised that he will take a sleep a little bit…

The first driver got into a small traffic jam, immediately reports to the Tracking Team and Broker. Arrived on delivery at 06:20 PM. Everyone is happy because the task is successfully done.

The other driver wakes up at 6:00 PM, he realizes he is sleeping too much, he does not know how it happened to him, 35 missed calls, none has heard. He still thinks that today’s day is not for him, he still does not understand his mistake. He does not know what to say to Tracking, he does not know what to say to Broker. Tracking does not trust the driver anymore, reports the incident situation with the HR, Tracking think that the driver does not want to do his job, the driver does not have a bad intention, but somehow bad things happen, he does not know how it all happened to him and why it always happens to him. There are another 85 miles and less than an hour’s drive. He can drive so fast. The truck is moving and moving over the speed limit, luckily there are not many vehicles in front of him … At 20 miles before delivery, the DOT stops the driver, writes a 15-mile-speed limit to him, tries to explain that he’s late on delivery. He does not manage to unfreeze the officer’s heart, he has received a violation. 07:15 PM DOT inspection has ended, he continues to be unhappy because he has ruined everything today. Now he refreshes his memory, realizes that he has badly planned his time. He thought that he would arrive on the pick up on the time, but he did not. Now he would do it, now he knows that he would certainly do it, but if he has the chance to bring the time back.

Now he knows that he would not drive fast, but would try to maintain a constant speed limit, he knows that he would not has his headache and knows he would not decide to sleep in the middle of the load and would not get a speeding violation. Arrived on delivery at 07:50 PM.

From this story, we conclude that if you offer a professional driver to choose between speeding and delay on delivery, he will not choose anyone. He will choose to organize his time in the right way and will get everything done without delay.

Let’s all learn to organize our time as the first driver, because that’s simple. 😊
