I proceeded to drive the truck, with it's loaded trailer, to the Jackson, MO terminal. It was well after 5pm, as I had to wait for someone to follow me so I could get back home. I parked the truck, put the paperwork in the seat, turned in my last load information and left. I have applied for numerous jobs since then, even lease/purchase, and have been told that Mercury Specialized Carriers reported me to DAC as "truck abandonment". I've called the company numerous times to no avail. I spoke with them around 4:45pm 6/5/06 (today) and was told that they didn't see the truck in the yard until 12/22/05, a Thursday (I dropped it off Sunday or Monday night) and they considered that my termination/quit date. I asked them how they could report it as a truck abandonment when it was on THEIR property and was told since it wasn't noticed until the 22nd they considered it abandoned.
Now, how do you not know a truck is on your yard when the yard is only big enough for 10 trucks (max). How do you not notice that a load is 2 or 3 days late? I believe the receiver called Mercury after the load was "late" and that's when they decided to do a walk around the yard and see if the truck/trailer was there like I said it would be (almost a week before).
I have done the calculations since this happened and realize that since I could have gotten a job right away, if this false report hadn't been made to DAC, I am out $22,800.00. This is calculating .38 per mile @ 3000 miles/week for 5 months. .38 per mile is about average for a company driver with 5-6 years experience (as I have). I also believe that, if I chose, I could sue for defamation of character (libel). This has cost me many opportunities, wasted time, lack of money as well as an inability to get a driving job with a good, medium/large sized company...or do lease purchase.
I finally found a decent driving job in 3/06 (3 months after this all happened). However, it's not with a company of my choice...but a company I had to "settle" for due to my DAC report.
