This could at times be as many as six to eight loads at a time. All of the bill of ladings had to be put into the computer in a timely matter to insure the other terminals could be prepared when freight would reach their docks so they could have all the information to delivery the freight to the customers. Ninety nine percent of all the freight had to be entered by a code to insure that customer was being billed the set rate on freight which had been negotiated in advance. These rates would be good up to one year or more. I also was the only customer service representative I could answer any question they may have about rates, transit time, availability of equipment.
