I have also noticed how Saia and NEMF combined would make a nationwide LTL carrier. People at my terminal swear I'm nuts. I believe the onlly overlapping areas would be the "new" NEMF terminals. Saia recently purchased a small LTL company to put them into the Ohio area. Who will be their next purchase to buy into the northeast market? Land Air express of Vermont or NEMF? There aren't many choices. NEMF is a better bet.
