    Strom coding freight is one reason why are numbers are up for December. Every LTL company uses it. Not saying it is right, its just one of the way to cover up poor service.

    Andy and Phil both got gone Saturday evening. Eric and Bruce followed Joe. Harlan retired to save a job; with Andy, Phil and Ann gone it is hard to imagine just who he saved.

    I'll straighten them out. Where's this at, in NC. It would be the first time that I spat on a Confederate Flag over at CNC. Well in the shop anyway.

    [quote author=carolinajohn link=topic=59151.msg783674#msg783674 date=1262804464]
    Letting freight sit over the weekend was never a roadway practice until the last few years.
    The weekend was always the busiest time of the week.The satellite terminals were always packed with freight on Monday morning to be delivered.It was said that roadway moved more freight on the weekend than all the other freight companies moved during the week.When YRC stopped moving as much freight as they could on the weekends,they made a big mistake and gave up the edge they had in giving the best service possible.They better get back to the old policy of giving good service,instead of letting the bean counters run the company.This debt swap gave them a great opportunity to make it,let`s hope the use it wisely.Tens of thousands of people depend on this company making it.
    [/quote]

    They used to run this freight out of our BB to the satellites friday and saturday and even though it was going to sit in the (closed) satellite all weekend they had the audacity to stamp it 'time sensitive'/HOT (at roadway, as of 14 months ago when I was laid off).

    *peace* and good luck all
