Easy to do with all that open space to back into. Rookie drivers are still amazed to see it done...

It's easy when it's a short distance. But harder when it isnt

Sit back in your shitty-ass owner operator gig.. let Teamsters handle this

Not the best backing job! To slow and to many back and forth movements.
joe woodchuck (1 year ago)
I didn't even think that was possible.

Ups drivers are the best on the roads especially feeder drivers you almost never see a Ups semi involved in any kind of accident or pileup..very rare sight

Thats epic.. with the dollies Its hundred times harder

Seems pretty straight back, still very difficult
Alex Roth (1 year ago)
Freewheeling. Drive a gravel train. You have to do this shit all the time. In small parking lots, on trash mounds, asphalt yards, dirt pits. This is a walk in the park.
Shabuti R18 (1 year ago)
I cant do this shit in a video game, let alone real life. Matter of fact, fuck parallel parking too.
Nick T. (1 year ago)
When I started feeders at UPS I was training with a guy that did the same but a shorter distance no tractor or anything on either side. He was moving the steering wheel left and right really fast to keep the whole thing straight. After this he told me you'll learn to back a set if you want to save time or avoid getting out in the cold like it was that night.

It's easier w single axle 2 back up doubles
Big Tim's Trucking LLC (1 year ago)
Damn I bet he could back up a triple heck even 53” double
George Ashing (2 years ago)
See theirs guys like us out there who can back up lol he must of work on a farm too.

I shift at ups and couldn't do this for shit🤦🏽‍♂️
Z0mbiekiller254 (2 years ago)
doesn't have anything to do with union there was five of us at a non union company that could back doubles we all made the mistake of going to drive for walmart instead of staying where we were ,3 are dead and me and the other are retired not before getting hurt real bad

do it everyday.... to the dock.
Steverino Gateserelli (2 years ago)
wow they back up faster than they go forward on the highway ...freakin amazing..
Brian Ruppel (1 year ago)
Most trucks at my center are governed... Accelerate until you hit the governor, then set the cruise.
Nick T. (1 year ago)
Steverino Gateserelli it depends. Mileage driver's will go as fast as the tractor can go. But hourly drivers will take their time or stick to the schedule especially if overtime is involved.
CAMXposure (2 years ago)
it takes practice- and need clearance- works best on a downhill grade such as a unloading bay... backing a dolly on with a lead trailer is another skill that can save time- you hone these skills with yard time and space- I know I had fun....!!!
Dashcam TV (2 years ago)
This is very difficult to do. A few guys can however back up a set to a door. I've seen it.

I'm a Yard Shifter at UPS (Texas).. My Father just retired 25 years safe driving at UPS and I have guys tell me stories about him backing doubles... I've only been driving 1 year (on the yard), but my job is to drive backwards.. I can back circles around the building if i wanted, and put a 35ft or a 28ft in a 6 inch gap on each side no problem (we have to do that to park inside the building on the airdocks).. but when it comes to backing a dolly, on the back of a pup, it gets away fast and there is alot of swinging to do.. I can't imagine a double set with 6 pivot points.. thats YEARS of experience, and the only way you get that experience is BALLS! "GOD Bless The Unions" is right! As my father always said about backing doubles, "6FT back, 2FT Forward... Keep the dolly straight... Repeat...". Some other things he said was, "Use ALL of the room available to you, no one will complain", "The first rule of backing is DON'T BACK", and "If it doesn't look like you just pulled out of it... You ain't gonna back it in there!" :)
Ryan Moretto (1 month ago)
3 pivot points bro lmao front 5th wheel, Pintle hook, and rear 5th....
kelly watkins (2 years ago)
It's not easy, but it's possible. I used to hook triples all the time but not in paved flat lots. 1 million personal 3 million team and 5 million team driving awards. Pity they only lasted 74 years in business.
The94GTC (2 years ago)
It's harder than it looks. I can back a dollie to hook up and that's hard enough
Nick T. (1 year ago)
Just make sure the trailer is not too low or you'll poke a hole with the dolly. :-)
The94GTC (2 years ago)
Lee Huff when there is 8" of snow and ice on the lot it's not an option for me. That's the only way to hook up!
Lee Huff (2 years ago)
The94GTC I refuse to even try it. I figure they put that pintle hook on the back of the tractor for a REASON. Plus, I don't have time to piss with it, and I have about a half-second of patience on one of my rare good days!
platecrumb (3 years ago)
As a "freight hauler" of 20+ years,,, nah it's not easy guys. (Backing doubles) I've seen yard guys that will blow your mind but they have a 6' yard mules too with the turning radius if a lawn mower but still it's fun to watch the vets.

Ferguson101 (3 years ago)
slimchancetoo Yea you would never want to reverse them but at some point you will probably have to for some unforseen circumstances.
slimchancetoo (3 years ago)
Well i guess if all the articulation points, turntables (fifth wheels) and Ringfeders were locked up and prevented from turning, and if the ground was flat and smooth it might just be possible to reverse them for a few meters (yards) or so. Not too many mind you - but maybe a few meters. Without this lock-up and perfect environment I doubt it would be possible to reverse more than 50 meters (yards) before the whole thing got out of line and started tying itself in knots. Mine sites -- particularly where these trains operate - are not known to be perfect environments. Apart from that -- why would you want to reverse them ???????? They are designed to go in one direction -- forwards. I believe that after 1,000,000 miles the reverse gears can be sold as 'brand new - never used'. !!
Ferguson101 (3 years ago)
slimchancetoo As long as the trailers are all straight I don't see why you couldn't. It's not he's trying to alley dock them.
slimchancetoo (3 years ago)
@Ferguson101 They do indeed - but never in REVERSE !!!!!!!!!!!!
St. Rawman (3 years ago)
And I thought my tight 180° back was impressive. this takes some skill. I understand getting out and filming that.
Denis Charbonneau (3 years ago)
Little bit easier with the B-Trains. Then, when you get good, you can actually do it with the A-Train. But every time you 'miss', (back jackknife) you have to pull forward to straighten them. Now if you move more terrain FORWARD then you're BACKING up, you are simply not able to do it... (Takes practice !)
G. Johnson (3 years ago)
Super job! In 40 years of primarly lowbed but many years of doubles, I have only backed up my doubles 1 1/2 truck lengths before I was in trouble. It is truly a site to behold when you see a professional driver accomplish this. This is a PROFESSIONAL DRIVER! Hats off.

Mary Ellen Dempsey (3 years ago)
I've seen this done once in fifteen years. Prior to that I'd been told it was possible but as a wiggle-waggle driver I doubted anyone could do it. The guy backed into a dock, dropped his landing gear on the rear trailer, released the fifth-wheel on the 'con' gear, pulled forward and disconnected his 'con' gear from the front trailer and placed the front trailer in the next dock door. Wish we'd had these camera phones back then.
craig responds (2 years ago)
Mary Ellen Dempsey Practice. It is doable.
Henry Jackson (3 years ago)
we do it all the time ! even with double 48s its easier
slimchancetoo (3 years ago)
+Henry Jackson Yep - anybody knows that the longer the trailer, and the more axles and weight, the easier it is. The guy in the vid is skillfully backing up two short single axle trailers -- that takes skill.
Mat Lalaga (3 years ago)
us Australians back those trucks in any position easy.
Johny Bravo (3 years ago)
Hey Mate😎
slimchancetoo (3 years ago)
This guy is not backing up in a 'big city' - he is backing up in a paved parking area which may or may not be outside a 'Big City'. And the outback does count because there are not many paved parking areas out there - the ground can be pretty rough and it would not be possible to back this combination - ALL SINGLE AXLE UNITS - over it in a straight line. In fact you would be looking at the back doors of the second trailer pretty quickly if you tried.
frogkic (3 years ago)
Yeah, backing up in the fucking outback don't count, You dont even know what a big city is
Luis Lara (3 years ago)
I give this guy props, it ain't easy, I've tried it.

they have to take apart triples & switch trailers & rehook where I came from
Jimbo Bottleneck (4 years ago)
That's some serious skill! God bless the unions!
Charlie Ewing (2 years ago)
Jimbo Bottleneck um I'm not union and I know I can do that because I have and do it often so it's not the union and trust me when I say this because I see those and the other union drivers out here all day doing p and d like I do they are some of the most unsafe and unskilled drivers I have ever meet. just saying that guy is a professional union didn't have anything to do with it they don't teach you that there at ups
Durban Poison (2 years ago)
Uncle Daddy being union has nothing to do with this. This comes down to individual skill. As a Teamster myself, I'm glad to see one of ours showing skill.

Timothy Pruitt (6 years ago)
The secret is in the short wheelbase of the day cab. You can correct with pinpoint accuracy. Put that same driver in a W900L and watch what happens. I can back one pup and a converter dolly, but seldom have I ever successfully backed up a set. FedEx Ground, 1.5 Million safe miles.

With all SB I-65 lanes blocked just north of Merrillville, IN and INDOT having traffic back up to exit off, we heard this gem from a guy pulling a double. "I gotta license that says I can drive this thing but it don't say nothin 'bout backin it up". We still laugh about it 14 years later.

Kevin Bradley (6 years ago)
It's not easy with it being short, long, short, long sections and you easily lose sight of the dolly. I've had to do it a few times and once in the rain had to back out of a driveway into the street on a 90 turn. We actually have a female driver that can back a set to a dock door between trailers.
Jeff Panetta (6 years ago)
I know what ya mean. That almost happened to me a few weeks ago in Bethlehem PA looking for one of our drop yards at a Penske. went like 3 miles past the turn, driving down these real tight streets and finally found a spot to turn around behind this tiny lil gas station and I had 2 lift gate trailers and have no idea how I didn't smash those reefers or how I made the turn around.
