    If there are no customers who need or want Accelerated Service (either inbound or outbound) in any particular area then I doubt if it's a service that can be marketed. Why would anyone pay extra for expedited service they don't need?

    2 months after the initiation of the Accelerated Service, the so called most significant launch in 2 decades we have yet to gain 1 new customer from it. Will it be another 2 decades until their next brainstorm?

    When you say "we have yet to gain 1 new customer from it" are you referring to just your particular terminal or are you speaking system wide? Just curious.

    Another month is coming to an end and I can't remember the last time I've heard any management personal even mention Accelerated service. When the Accelerated service first went into effect they wanted 50 Accelerated service shipments a week, now they don't even act they care. Our small terminal in southeast Kansas continues to be hindered by lackadaisical management that cares nothing about seeing this terminal prosper. As long as we have enough freight for management to keep their jobs, that's all they care about. We had one Teamster quit last week and another one quitting in a couple weeks. Both are going to what they feel are better jobs because the future just doesn't look that good here. Both men were very good workers and not easily replaced. There's some very serious problems here that can't be talked about at this time , but will be in the future. Finally some individuals are speaking out and taking action to get this management mess cleaned up.

    Your right when you mention our location, we're not exactly the center of the universe. But regardless of your location or what you think of your management we all want to see our Terminal do well. We just had another man give his resignation this week, this makes 3 Teamsters to quit this month. They all felt like there's no future here. They talked the talk and they walked the walk, I respect that in them.

    One of the supervisors who was so lazy they would send our freight down the road so they wouldn't have to stay over while we worked it has finally succumbed to the pressures of the freight business and 8 hour's work. They went to their doctor and told him the job was causing them mental distress. Needless to say the doctor removed the supervisor from work. The only mental problem this supervisor ever had was their mental negligence of their own job. The mentally distressed supervisor's job has been filled by a new supervisor and now mental distressed supervisor hasn't any job to return to. Life goes on without you!

    And not excluding maybe those two companies found out that their freight was being hauled with long haul irregular route carriers and not what they paid for for us to haul it

    Raleigh, Nc 616. We get about 125 accelerated a week. Our customers love it. Some ship all their shipments accelerated. Doing well for us.

    That's really good. I don't know what is wrong with our barn, we just continuously lose business and are doing very little accelerated, maybe 20 bills a week. It's really hard to gauge how well the company is doing because where I'm at it looks like we're going out of business. Good to hear something positive.

    We managed to gain a little extra freight because of the holidays and once again management is too lazy to stay and work it. The men are here and ready to work it but management just puts a seal on the trailer and sends it down the road because management doesn't want to stay an extra hour to work it. I still say YRC should send the current management home and let them stay permanently, this terminal is going nowhere with the current management.

    The are like flies on :shit: here with accelerated freight. I gets annoying at times. They get chewed out for it. We get nothing so it's just freight to me.
