Better done before loading.  What value is having the truck loaded to find a flat tire before leaving?

Some companies require a completed, satisfactory form like the one below, with drivers signature before providing information needed to load the truck ( invoice – loading sheets – bill of lading, etc ) . 

Doing this inspection at the End of the Day gives time to make corrections.

STEERING

     
       
       

This is the driver’s responsibility.  It cannot be done for him.

Tires should be checked with an air gage.  Kicking the tires doesn’t tell the story when a tire should be 90 PSI +/- 10 PSI.

What are you using?  Is it working well for you? Any suggestions?  What do you think?
