    i have a question. Here at 326 Kansas City, Mo we load Charlotte proper to Nashville, but North Carolina BB freight to Charlotte direct. Any ideas why? Which is the break and which is the city terminal, 681 or 653? Or how is freight divided between the two?

    653 is the BB, and 681 is the city.

    Isn't proper and direct the same thing? You might need to clarify....the majority of our city operation is run from Roadway's dock which is 681, an additional small city operation and the breakbulk freight is run from the Yellow dock which is CNC 653....freight is divided between the two by delivery locations within NC and surrounding areas (SC border only minutes away)....g

    Not to high jack the thread, but the reason 326 loads the 681 freight to 402 rather than 653 is because 681 is a service center that participates in the 402 Flow Center . In theary the freight should arrive quicker going through 402.

    The reason is most of the network is designed for early morning arrivals. So if 326 freight arrives early morning to 402 they have 24 hours to strip, stack and dispatch the freight for early morning arrivial at 681. If it arrives early morning at 653, they would need to get to 681 at the same time.

    I hope I explained that right? :shift:

    Thanks Happy I was wondering the same thing on Portland OR. freight. We load a POR trailer with WA. and other freight but send Portland Or. freight to 309 (Chicago). Loaded 2 bills the other night 1 to Washington State and 1 to Portland (10 skids in all) all on the Portland trailer only to find out POR don't go to POR. Should have scanned the bill first I know.

    On a sad note Keith S. is a good guy his daughter played school soccer with mine. Tough loss for that family even though he felt it was coming. Good luck to him and his family.

    I don't think anyone who tranferred in from Richmond, or Winston Salem qualifies under these rules to retreat back....

    The guy from Richmond who was hired in 06 might be able as he's been laid off since the second or 3rd week of March. Something he should look into no matter what.

    Drag, don't know if Ed will be the one but there are 2 guys doing that job at night and 2 working on TC and service during the day seems like 2 to many. Only time will tell.
