Wednesday, June 10, 2020 RACIST UTAH ! 

RACIST UTAH: The Absolute Most Racist Trucking Company In The USA, Slave Drivers and Thiefs  That Don't Realize That Slavery Ended !   SWEATSHOP ON WHEELS !   Demanded Reimbursements,  Kicked Out of Truck In Washington State by Police, had to make my way back to Arizona on my own !  "Racist Trucking Company" Royalane Trucking Company Trucking Company 3008 N 3200 W, Benson, UT 84335 3677 N 2000 W Suite A, Farr West, UT 84404 (801) 436-5380  

Associated Food Stores Enabler of Racist Trucking Company "Royalane Trucking" 1850 West 2100 South  Salt Lake CityUtah Companies of "Associated Food Stores" That Enables Racist Trucking Company "Royalane Trucking"                  

The entire time that I worked for this company Royalane Trucking I was never allowed to take the Federal 34-hour reset to rest.  My last run with this company I was operating on 2-hours of sleep driving a 80,000 pound Semi-Truck.  Royalane Trucking hauls Reefers / Refrigerated Vans for "Associated Foods" located in Farr West, Utah.  

During this COVID-19 pandemic hauling food products allowed Royalane Trucking to run under the "C0VID-19 Emergency Status" and not have to follow normal Federal HOS-Hours of Service Regulations.  Royalane Trucking intentionally took advantage of the Federal HOS-Hours of Service Regulations being waived by President Trump and had me running all types of crazy hours, under normal Federal HOS-Hours of Service Regulations a Driver can only drive 11-hours and then have to take at least 10-hours of rest/sleep, that never happen.  Instead Royalane Trucking was scheduling my runs only 6-hours apart after having already drove on average 700 miles for that day !  

Obviously if the Driver is not allowed to take his 34-hour rest periods and continuously running then Royalane Trucking was gaining at least one additional run weekly that normally would have not been possible ! According to Royalane Trucking they pay $300 per run, this was a big lie because I was running over 3000 to 3500 miles per week and only being paid $1200 per week, even at $0.50 cents per mile would be worth $1500 per week.

Not being allowed to take my 34 hour rest periods and knowing that Royalane Trucking was getting an extra run out of me weekly I did the logical thing and requested at least another $300 per week, to raise my pay up to $1500 per week, never happen !   Instead Royalane Trucking just wanted to not allow me to take my 34-hour rest period and benefit from the extra run that resulted from it, as if my 34-hour rest periods were free to them !,

The entire name of the Trucking Industry is "To NEVER pay the Driver more !", even though it's the Driver doing all the work.   To put this mindset to test and make sure that this was exactly what I was dealing with I requested reimbursements, ($5.00 spent for LOVE's TirePass, and $30.00 spent on a checked bag at the airline when taking the flight to come to Driver Orientation, $35 total reimbursement !), small reimbursements that any decent Trucking Company would have paid without any question, just one problem here, Royalane Trucking is not a "Decent Trucking Company" !  

Upon Royalane Trucking refusing to reimburse the small $35.00 and knowing that Royalane Trucking was benefiting from an additional run weekly from my not being allowed to take my 34 hour rest periods I figured I would put Royalane Trucking to the test and actually try to take the 34 hour rest period granted to me by Federal Law / Federal Regulations !   Operating on two hour of sleep after having driven from Salt Lake City, UT to Spokane, Washington I told Royalane Trucking that I would be taking my 34 hour reset granted to me by Federal Law after dropping my load ! 

I was immediately told by Royalane's Trucking Dispatcher "No" and that I had another load after dropping my current load, mind you that if not taking a 34 hour rest period Federal Law still grants the driver minimum a 10 hour rest period to get some sleep, I never even got that driving for Royalane Trucking.   Arrived at the CoreMark Spokane, Washington location to deliver the load, couldn't deliver until the next day, went to the Wal-Mart to grab something to eat.  While sitting in the Wal-Mart parking lot eating my lunch.the Spokane Police shows up, at least five Police Patrol Units !   Fortunately for me being a Military Brat son of a 3-tour / 6 years in the bush Decorated Vietnam War Hero, Two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star born at Fort Bragg Green Beret Special Forces Base Army Hospital, Vietnam Era, the first Police Officer was Ex-Army !   

The Ex-Army Police Officer explained to me that the Royalane Dispatcher Rex had blew up the entire story as if I was an Armed Black Radical, thus the five Police Patrol Units !, keeping in mind that this was during and still is the time of the "BLACK LIVES MATTERS" protests !, a time when the Police are already on a heighten alert status, basically Royalane Trucking was trying to get me killed !, logical when looked at from Royalane's Trucking perspective my having gotten the load to it's delivery point if the Spokane Police had killed me then of course Royalane Trucking would not have to pay me !   Long story short, the Spokane Police did not kill me I'm here reporting this story, yet still Royalane Trucking is refusing to release my last paycheck !, which lends credence to my conclusion that "YES" Royalane Trucking was trying to get me killed !,

I had read a review on Royalane Trucking before going to work for them and a previous Driver had left a review that it was a Bad Company / Bad Experience for him also, according to the Driver that left the online review in his words "Royalane Trucking tries to find ways to take money from the Drivers in anyway that they can !"   The Spokane Police Officer asked me for the keys to the truck per Royalane Trucking request, I explained to the Officer that to avoid having an abandonment placed on my DAC report that I have to place the keys in the hands of a company representative, and guess who pops out of the background like the weasel he is !,

the Racist Royalane Trucking Dispatcher !, along with his female sidekick, some old Broad that looks like she wears "Confederate Flag" panties straight out of Alabama !   Royalane Trucking feeling embolden with five Spokane Police Patrol Unites backing them up told me that I had "15 minutes to Pack My Sh*t, or they were going to call a Tow Truck and Tow The Truck With My Sh*t In It !", kicked out of the Truck, I had the Spokane Police Officer ask Royalane Trucking if they had a Plane, Bus, or Amtrak Train ticket to pay my way back from Spokane, Washington to my home in Arizona, Royalane Trucking told the Spokane Police Department a resounding "No" !  

Kicked off of the Truck in Spokane, Washington with five Spokane Police Patrol Units, abandoned and left to fend for myself I took an Lyft for $34.38 to AmTrak and purchased an AmTrak Ticket for $338.75 USD and returned to Arizona, total $373.13 USD, my cost !, ask yourself what would have become of a Driver strapped for funds kicked off the truck across country miles away from his home state ?    Upon Royalane refusing to reimburse me my expensives nor allow me to take a 34 to get some rest I gave notice, I withdrew that notice after deciding to deliver the load, yet they still met me in Spokane with Five Spokane Police Patrol Units !, you be the Judge for yourself !  

Royalane Trucking cried, bi*ched and moaned about a $5.00 reimbursement that I spent at Love's TirePass to make sure that their Tractor-Truck has proper air in all the Tractor Tires, Royalane lacks any type of proper mechanical care of their equipment, obviously the tires lacked proper air pressure from the time the Tractor-Truck was assigned to me because warning indicator air pressure lights were on indicating a problem on the dashboard from the time that I got in the truck.  This was of course a on-going problem before I started driving the truck in that there was all types of air stems, air valves, and a tire pressure gauge in the side pocket as if the previous Driver had been having all types of air pressure problems.

Told me that it's my responsibility to keep air in the tires, obviously an old school Trucker that should be out of the business by now, Modern Drivers only "Drive and Sleep", besides what Driver would want to screw with air pressure when Love's Tire Pass will check air pressure on all 10 tires on a Tractor-Truck for $5.00 and / or all 8 trailer tires for an additional $5.00 all and all at the end of the day works out to $0.50 cents a tire !, I only had the tractor done for $5.00, how "Cheap" can a trucking company be ?, ridiculous ! , broke as*es !, I'll be surprised if they are even around in the next couple of years !   Not to mention that I also had my mail forwarded there from my P.O. Box in order to receive my TWIC-Transporation Workers Card in two separate USPS Priority Mail Envelopes, below shows that they received both USPS envelopes but have made absolutely zero efforts to return my mail to me !,

of course I've reported them to the U.S. Postal Inspectors Service !  Royalane Trucking being the Fly-By-Night Trucking Company that they are it will come of no surpise to find out that they have also opened my mail, of which they will have to answer charges from the U.S. Postal Inspectors office in that I will be pressing charges !

Wrong, "I GAVE NOTICE WHILE UNDER LOAD !" Two totally different animals ! Even "Withdrew Notice" and delivered load !

AUTHOR: Carl - (Mexico)

POSTED: Sunday, June 21, 2020

Two totally different animals !
Even "Withdrew Notice" and delivered load that was
not accepted after 2:30pm / 14:30 hrs with receiving opening again
at 5:00am, Load would have been on-time like all my other loads had
I not had to be going back and forth with you and your stupid-a_ _ Dispatcher
Texts, dropped and secured load via padlocks on the Trailer doors
and GladHand Lock at customer, went to Wal-Mart to grab a Rotisserie Chicken
and have lunch which is where your Dispatcher met me with five Spokane Patrol Units !
"You have 15 Minutes to Pack Your Sh_t, or I'm gong to call a Tow-Truck and Tow the Truck with Your Sh_t in it !"

Bret Findlay tries to consistently weasel his way out of responsibility saying that I was employed by
CTL Transportation, Not Royalane Trucking, that's the loophole that he tries to use. However,
CTL Transportation own by Rex Reeve with only two trucks is the Dispatcher for Royalane Trucking,
the employee of Royalane Trucking, CTL Transportation Trucks run under the Authority of
Royalane Trucking and all the freight that CTL Transportation hauls is Royalane Trucking's freight !

Rex Reeve of CTL Transportation continuously tells me of what he can and cannot do because he
was "Told", he's being told by"Bret Findlay" the puppetmaster, Rex Reeve is his employee, his
Dispatcher at Royalane Trucking, the very same Dispatcher that always has a pistol stuck in his
waistband "Under" his shirt, not even holstered !

Which is another reason that I'm happy to be away from there, who wants to work with someone
that's always walking around with a pistol under their shirt ?, what reason does a Trucking Dispatcher
have to be walking around with a pistol under their shirt ?, to me that only serves as a genuine indicator
of just how many Truck Drivers that that have swindled money from and screwed out of their rightful
pay !, to the point of now having to arm themselves, ridiculous !, I wouldn't come within 100 feet of that
company, even when I was in town back in Farr West after having dropped my loads at Associated Foods
Warehouse I still would not go to the Royalane Trucking office specifically for this exact reason, craziness !

CTL Transportation does not even have a DOT Number or MC Number, I checked, it's only an company incorporated out of Arizona, just an EX-Knight Transportation Driver.

Not Sure What You Are Trying to Prove Here

AUTHOR: Oblivious - (United States)

POSTED: Tuesday, June 16, 2020

If a driver quits, why would a company pay to get that driver home? The already have to pay to get their equipment unless they have a hub in that area. 

Driver's: Don't just quit if you have no funds to get yourself home. By the looks of it, you were able to get home, so why does the company owe you this money? Bagage fees? Sounds like they paid for your flight to get to orientation, the bagage fees are on you.

I dont know much about this Love's Tire Pass thing, but why wouldn't a driver fill tires that are low? Do you not know how?

You Quit CTL Transport while under a load!

AUTHOR: THE OLD BROAD - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, June 15, 2020

Carl Williams of Scottsdale Arizona,

You have stated many untrue facts about a company that you were not hired by. Royalane Trucking never cut a paycheck to you, does not have a Driver Contract with you and did not perform your orientation. These were done by CTL Transportation, who hauls our loads.

As for CTL Transportation, if in fact they were a racist company, then why were you hired? If slavery was a factor, they why were you paid? None of your statements make any sense.

If you were, “never allowed to take the Federal 34-hour reset to rest” then what do you call the five days off you had in Arizona (of which you used CTL Transport’s equipment to drive around over 400 miles while off-duty without permission and yet KEPT your JOB)?

Here are the facts:

You averaged less than 400 miles a day for each day you were under dispatch. Some of those miles were Personal Conveyance. You had several days of taking more than 10-hour rests. One day you only drove 224 miles before shutting down and getting a total of over 14-hours off duty rest break in a 24-hour period. How you decided to manage your logs during the COVID-19 exemption was up to you. CTL Transportation is not responsible for you mismanaging your time.

You never delivered any more loads than the average driver (even before the COVID-19 exemption) during any pay period since CTL Transportation hired you, so your claim that Royalane Trucking or CTL Transportation “gaining at least one additional run weekly that normally would have not been possible!” is an untrue statement, yet you demanded a pay raise before even finishing out your probation period and after receiving Bonuses. Your base pay would have been on how many loads you Delivered in any pay period, and on average, you did an average load count.

You requested a 34-hr reset in Spokane, Washington after having knowledge of another load to pick up and deliver to Utah. Per FMCSA Emergency Declaration Restrictions and Limitations 49 CFR Part 392.3:

“Motor carriers shall not require or allow fatigued drivers to operate a commercial motor vehicle.  A driver who informs a carrier that he/she needs immediate rest shall be given at least ten consecutive hours before the driver is required to return to service.”

You missed your delivery at 11:00 AM due to mismanagement of your time, however, you still arrived in Spokane, WA at 3:11 PM PST with a new delivery at 5:00 AM the next morning. There was plenty of time to take more than a 10-hour reset.

Had you delivered on time; you would have had even more of a rest break before reloading your next dispatched the following morning between the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM (FCFS Facilities). You were given the option of taking a 34-hour reset after delivery near the hub so your Boss of CTL Transportation could do some repairs on his equipment you were driving.

On June 4th at 6:05 AM, PST, you gave your notice stating, "Sorry, but you don't dictate where I take my resets, notice given!" followed by, "You can send someone to pick up your truck in Spokane. I'll be there to delivery the keys." (verbatim including spelling errors). 

You incorrectly stated "....and the law dictates resets not your a*s!"

The way you treated your Boss at CTL Transportation, after releasing yourself from duty, was unacceptable. The swearing, name calling and vindictive nature of your text messages, not answering his calls to your phone to talk things out, however, CTL Transportation was willing to offer solutions to the situation; none of which you wanted anything to do with. 

Racist? If you wish to live in a world where What you are is more important than Who you are, that is on you. Who you are is based on personality and how you treat others. How you act and how professional you are makes the difference with any company. What you are is your business and was never taken into account when you were hired. 

Based on your text messages, yes, the police were called to "keep the peace" and by the way, four units showed up, not five. No one was trying to kill you or get you killed. That is your assumption, but after you sent multiple text messages calling your Boss a racist and sending links with threats and referencing the "George Floyd" incident, yes, keeping the peace with officers present was necessary.

You quit your employment, so you had no right to remain in the equipment. CTL Transportation also had no responsibility or obligation to pay your way home after you quit.  You were found without the loaded trailer attached, therefore, you no longer had possession of the load, and it was abandoned outside of the Consignees property.

How your treated your Boss, your unprofessionalism of how you "threw away" the Bill of Ladings, for the load not yet delivered, refusing to return all the company property, including keeping one of the keys to the truck, and (upon finding the abandoned trailer) placing three different locks on the loaded trailer (property of Royalane Trucking) and not supplying the keys to even one of them (one being a glad hand lock so the truck could not hook up to the LOADED TRAILER YOU ABANDOND) was anything but professional. Attempting to "hold hostage" a loaded trailer during the COVID-19 pandemic. No charges were filed against you!

Question?: If Royalane Trucking was such a "Racist Trucking Company" then why were you texting the owner on June 5th asking to, "Put me in a LT or Volvo with the same exact pay package that you pay your "White" Drivers!"? His response was GOLDEN, "Why do you think I was calling you and texting you asking you to let me help you in the situation yesterday? You Ignored me all day. But now after you have threatened me and falsely accused me, you think I can trust you enough to hire you?"

All in all, You didn't get your way, and now, you have attacked a company that was not your employer, called its customers, lied about your employment and have made several attempts to deface their reputations. 

You stated to the Owner of Royalane Trucking, "Judge people by their actions, not their words, because WORDS ARE CHEAP!". You have shown by your own actions who you are and now the world will also know who you are:

Carl Williams has in fact:

Quit his job

Abandoned a loaded trailer and attempted to stop the delivery of produce during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic by placing three locks and not giving the keys to any one of them. Threw away or destroyed the Bill of Ladings needed for delivery.

Destroyed original Bill of Ladings for 19 previously delivered loads (i.e., destruction of company property)

Called customers of Royalane Trucking, (information taken from Bill of Ladings in his possession) and stated untruths about Royalane Trucking. (Slander – untrue defamatory statement that is spoken orally)

Wrote a blog and now a report stating written untruths about Royalane Trucking, Associated Foods, and CTL Transportation (Libel – untrue defamatory statements that is made in writing)

Placed several company logos on blog site without expressed consent or permissions (Copyright Infringements – multiple)

Since June 4, 2020, has continually harassed and threatened Royalane Trucking who NEVER HIRED HIM and whom HE NEVER WORKED FOR.

Has continually made Racist Allegations against Royalane Trucking and its associates.
