Based on 3M website for weight of a single mask (~⅓ oz each = 48masks/lb), approximately 2 million if there were no pallets/boxes. Probably 1.75 million with pallets and boxes. Major hospitals treating COVID, when they have no constraints, will use ~50,000 per day. That one truck will supply 10 south FL hospitals for about 3-4 days. Points out how invaluable each piece of our logistics network really is!!

Thanks Jim. There were 22 pallets but driver said they were smaller then he was use to.
TSD are sending me multiple cards with advance money option taken off. Not that I don't trust my drivers but.... So there are many options available within the card itself.

On a different note...One of my trucks just grabbed a load at Indy with 42000 lbs of masks from US Customs and Boarder heading to Miami. I just wonder the quantity of masks 42000 lbs nets. Exempt LOGs & cheap fuel c'mon
Thanks Tim, the truck drivers are so important every day.

I just saved $109 today. Took my barrels to the Loves and filled them up. In reality I actually saved more than $109. Our local stations were all selling it for $2.75 or more. I bought it for $1.63. The $109 savings came from EFS because the Loves I purchased it had $2.64 on their sign. So add another $13 to the $109, If I would have bought it back home. This Loves was only 30 miles away and worth the drive in the truck with my barrels. Plus I got to see my youngest daughter and her family when I went to the Loves. Good day and good savings

An interesting note now that crude oil prices have dropped dramatically, the TSD discounts have gotten much better. When I first started with my card last fall the savings at truck stops was around $.40/gallon and I could meet or maybe beat the price by looking at gas buddy. Now the TSD savings is double what it was and some are reporting $1.00/gallon savings at truck stops and even gas buddy prices are not even close to the TSD price. Looks like the all the retail stations or their suppliers are not passing on the lower prices. Appears the middle distributors are making more profits and the small stations and RV customers at the truck stops are getting screwed. Even more reason to get the card.

Be skeptical of the diesel prices Gasbuddy is displaying as it appears they have a bug in their software as they have stopped displaying diesel prices at some stations in my area.
I have tried numerous times to have them investigate this with pump pictures and emails and they finally appear to be looking into it as diesel is not being displayed at some stations in my area.
