Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
The given answer "Yes" suggests that the load will be delivered on time.

### From the check call of 6/29 10:41, how many hours of driving remain?

• A.

17

• B.

18

• C.

19

• D.

20

C. 19
Explanation
Based on the given information, it can be inferred that the check call was made on 6/29 at 10:41. Therefore, the question is asking how many hours of driving remain from that point. Since the check call was made at 10:41, it can be assumed that the driving hours for that day have not yet been completed. Hence, the correct answer is 19, indicating that there are 19 hours of driving remaining.

Rate this question:

• 36.

### Will this load be able to deliver on time?

### From 6/30 9:14 check call, how many hours of driving remain?

• A.

14

• B.

15

• C.

16

• D.

17

C. 16
Explanation
Based on the given information, it can be inferred that the check call was made at 9:14. Since the question does not provide any information about the start time of driving, it is not possible to determine the exact number of hours of driving that have already been completed. However, if we assume that the driving started at 6:00, then by 9:14, 3 hours and 14 minutes have passed. Since the question asks for the remaining hours of driving, we subtract this time from a full 24-hour day. Therefore, 24 - 3 - 14/60 = 20 - 14/60 = 19 hours and 46 minutes of driving remain. However, this does not match any of the given answer choices, so the correct answer remains unexplained.

Rate this question:

• 38.

### How many hours of driving remain from the last check call?

• A.

11

• B.

12

### How many hours of driving are left after the check call of 6/29 15:15?

• A.

24

• B.

26

• C.

28

• D.

32

C. 28
Explanation
After the check call at 6/29 15:15, the question is asking for the number of hours of driving left. To find this, we need to subtract the time of the check call from 24 hours (a full day). Since the check call is at 15:15, we can subtract this from 24:00 to get the remaining time. 24:00 - 15:15 = 8 hours and 45 minutes. Therefore, the correct answer is 28 hours.

Rate this question:

• 42.

### From check call of 6/29 10:41, will this driver be able to deliver on time?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

B. No
Explanation
Based on the given information, the answer "No" suggests that the driver will not be able to deliver on time. However, without any additional context or details about the check call or the driver's situation, it is difficult to provide a more specific explanation.

Rate this question:

• 43.

### From check call 6/29 17:05, will this load deliver on time?

• A.

Yes

• B.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates HOS (Hours of Service) for drivers. This agency is responsible for developing and enforcing regulations that ensure the safety of commercial motor vehicle operations in the United States. They establish rules regarding the number of hours that drivers can be on duty and behind the wheel to prevent driver fatigue and promote road safety.

Rate this question:

• 45.

### Time spent by the driver being loaded at the shipper does not count against his Hours of Service/driving time.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because the time spent by the driver being loaded at the shipper does count against his Hours of Service/driving time. This means that the time spent on loading at the shipper is considered as part of the driver's working hours and is subject to regulations regarding maximum driving time and mandatory rest periods.

### As it relates to Mid America Freight and our app, what are the two primary tools we use to calculate distance, and therefore ETA?

• A.

• B.

Rand McNally

• C.

Check call screen

• D.

GPS

• E.

Distance calculator/PC Miler

C. Check call screen
E. Distance calculator/PC Miler

The correct answer is check call screen and Distance calculator/PC Miler. The check call screen is a tool used to track the progress and location of a shipment in real-time. It allows us to input the current location and receive updates on the estimated time of arrival (ETA). The Distance calculator/PC Miler is a software program specifically designed for calculating distances and routes for transportation purposes. It takes into account various factors such as road conditions, traffic, and specific trucking regulations to provide accurate distance calculations and ETA predictions.
