Please be advised that in the coming weeks we will have a debut a new gate software which will require dispatchers or those booking appointments to select the correct Truck Number (license) with the Driver when booking the appointment. 

Currently if this is incorrect driver receives a trouble ticket and they are allowed to gate in as gate clerk can correct it.

This will not occur once new system is live, if incorrect the driver will be turned around at the gate and dispatcher will need to correct information on a new appointment. 

Please inform all those making appointments to not simply select the first truck license number on the drop down, IT MUST BE CORRECT NUMBER.

OTR RTG Spreader Bar Hazard

Recently we have had several close calls with Drivers pulling away from the RTG too fast and not allowing enough time for spreader to fully disengage from container once landed on chassis.

This could cause a very serious accident, including having the entire RTG topple over and collapse. 

SFCT - OTR RTG Spreader Bar Hazard

Please speak to your drivers and explain to them the seriousness of this issue and how immensely important it is that they are 100% fully attentive when taking a delivery from an RTG crane. The RTG blows the horn like a top loader, but if their DRIVER SIDE window is up they MAY not hear it. Encourage them to take appropriate steps to minimize risk involved:

eRTG Project

Dear customers,

SFCT is starting our eRTG project which will prepare the terminal for the future.  The construction company has been moving their equipment in and we fenced off the first area that will be worked.  We had to move a few fences to accommodate the construction equipment but these will be completed in a day or two.  In the meantime the truckline might be a little slower than usual however, every trucker that comes to the terminal will be serviced.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during this period and we will make every effort to accommodate every customer.
