Trucking companies, or carriers, generally have a home office or terminal from which they run their businesses. At the terminal there are loading docks where trucks pull up to drop off and pick up their loads. The terminal also houses a maintenance area for repairs and safety checks on trucks, a warehouse where dockworkers work, and an office area where terminal managers, sales representatives, customer service representatives, and dispatchers work. Some terminals also offer amenities for drivers, including laundry facilities, showers, telephones, and wash bays.
