    Just wondering how often other terminals bid linehaul. When l started we bid every 6 months now it's once a year.

    Most breakbulks and large boards seem to be every six months (like with everything there's exceptions)
    End of line and smaller barns yearly.

    6 months. And it's not a 'bid' anymore. Apparently that smells too much of union. It's now called 'driver reallocation' or ' schedule selection.' Seriously.
