Owner Driver - - OWNER // DRIVER -

The re­cent raid on Ron Finemore Trans­port and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing pic­ture that was on the NSW Po­lice Force Face­book page threw up an in­ter­est­ing con­trast of com­ments.

The al­most equal split be­tween those with a se­ri­ous in­ter­est in trans­port and logistics mat­ters and the oth­ers was stark. Of the former, the best posts in­cluded: “Shrink Wrap is not load restraint”; “You pick up a trailer and it has seal on it and the driver will not see the load. Till the RMS pull you over see the chain of re­spon­si­bil­ity”; “How about telling the goods depo to train peo­ple bet­ter in wrap­ping loads. The driv­ers don’t do any of that”; “The liquor stacks al­ways scared me when I had to un­wrap them. I have lit­er­ally had to catch bot­tles and cases that have fallen as the cling wrap was re­moved”. The other set are best rep­re­sented by: “Awww look at the poor Jack Daniels”; “Rip JD and Wood­stock” and “Heart­break­ing to see this hap­pen and good al­co­hol pays the price”.
