    • B.

      Shipper Signature

    • C.

      Delivery Number(s)

    • E.

      Consignee Phone Number

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Temperature
    B. Shipper Signature
    D. Seal Number
    Explanation
    The BOL needs to include the temperature, shipper signature, and seal number for all reefer loads once the driver is loaded. The temperature is important to ensure that the reefer load is maintained at the required temperature throughout the transportation process. The shipper signature is necessary to confirm that the load has been received by the driver. The seal number is used to secure the load and ensure that it has not been tampered with during transit. Including these three items on the BOL helps to ensure the proper handling and accountability of reefer loads.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    True of False: The driver should inspect every reefer load before it is sealed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because it is important for the driver to inspect every reefer load before it is sealed. This is necessary to ensure that the load is properly secured, the temperature is set correctly, and there are no damages or leaks in the reefer unit. Inspecting the load helps to prevent any potential issues during transportation and ensures the safety and quality of the goods being transported.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What does PRE-COOLING mean?

    • A.

      Defrosting the trailer.

    • B.

      Putting the trailer temp to -10 before dispatching.

    • C.

      Having the trailer at the temperature listed in Bazooka before arriving at the shipper.

    • D.

      Preparing the trailer to turn the reefer unit on.

    Correct Answer
    C. Having the trailer at the temperature listed in Bazooka before arriving at the shipper.
    Explanation
    Pre-cooling refers to the process of having the trailer at the temperature listed in Bazooka before arriving at the shipper. This means that the trailer is cooled down to the required temperature before loading the goods, ensuring that the desired temperature is maintained throughout the transportation process. This is important to preserve the quality and freshness of the products being transported, especially in the case of perishable goods. By pre-cooling the trailer, the temperature-sensitive cargo can be safely transported without any risk of spoilage or damage.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If a SEAL is broken in transit by law enforcement, what does the driver need to obtain?

    • A.

      Written documentation from law enforcement explaining why.

    • B.

      A warrant.

    • C.

      A picture of the office breaking the SEAL.

    • D.

      Confirmation from his dispatch that the seal was broken by law enforcement.

    Correct Answer
    A. Written documentation from law enforcement explaining why.
    Explanation
    If a SEAL is broken in transit by law enforcement, the driver needs to obtain written documentation from law enforcement explaining why. This documentation serves as proof and provides a clear explanation for the broken seal, ensuring accountability and transparency in the process. It helps establish a record of the incident and provides a legal basis for any necessary actions or claims.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    True of False: Except for loads that are under 24 F (-4 C) or unless specifically stated by the customer, drivers should run every reefer load on continuous.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Drivers should run every reefer load on continuous, except for loads that are under 24 F (-4 C) or unless specifically stated by the customer. This means that for most reefer loads, it is necessary to keep the refrigeration unit running continuously to maintain the required temperature. However, for loads that are already below 24 F (-4 C) or if the customer has provided specific instructions, the driver may need to adjust the settings accordingly.

      Talk to the shipper.

    • C.

      Call his/her dispatcher.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Inspect the load. If the shipper does not allow this, the driver must contact Coyote.
    Explanation
    Before the trailer is sealed, the driver needs to inspect the load. However, if the shipper does not allow the driver to inspect the load, the driver must contact Coyote, presumably the company they work for, for further instructions or assistance.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    True or False: You should create an incident if you discover a difference between any of the following: the temperature the shipper instructs the driver to use, the temperature on the BOL, the temperature shown in Bazooka, or the actual temperature of the trailer. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If any of these don't match we need to verify the correct temperature from the customer reps or report that the temperature is currently incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    When should you manually add a tracking note for a reefer load? 

    • A.

      Only if an automated tracking note isn't created. (e.g. When you are making a location update)

    • B.

      Every time, so you can include the current trailer temperature in the note.

    • C.

      Only if the temperature is different from what is shown in Bazooka.

    • D.

      You should never have to add a manual tracking note on reefer loads.

    Correct Answer
    B. Every time, so you can include the current trailer temperature in the note.
    Explanation
    When manually adding a tracking note for a reefer load, it should be done every time so that the current trailer temperature can be included in the note. This is important because the temperature of the reefer load may change during transportation, and documenting the current temperature ensures accurate record-keeping and monitoring of the load's condition.
