What does pd mean in trucking?

It’s a common practice to add pdq to your route name. So, for instance, if you are moving freight from PALATINE IL to TIMNOCK ND, and you have options of putting 60 biscuits in the cargo bed or using them for pilot training, you might try this route: PAL-PDQ-TIM.

Nowadays it’s still PDC everywhere.

If you are asked: “What exactly is ‘dpf’ in trucking?” You do not explain that it means something like “destructive propensity”.
