Roll that Beautiful Bean Footage – Hauling Beans from TN to York, PA [Video]

After delivering toilets in Greenville, South Carolina last night, we had to deadhead 134 miles to Dandridge, Tennessee for the next load.

We drove 124 miles before parking at a Walmart in Newport, Tennessee for the night.

The next morning we covered the remaining 10 miles to Bush’s Baked Beans facility near Dandridge.

The bulk of this video shows a drop and hook operation at a shipper. Drop and hook operations are typically quicker than a live load process.

Once we’ve got the loaded trailer, we’ll scale it on the on-site axle scale. Then we’ll be on our way to York, Pennsylvania where we’ll make delivery tomorrow.

      I could never get into NASCAR, although I should have thought to mention the Bristol Motor Speedway; I’m at least aware of it’s existence, so I wish I would have thought to mention it during the video. Feel free to mention it in the comments for that video on YouTube if you want. -Rick
