    Too bad. Get rid of the good. Keep the ones that can cook the books.

    Last two years new TMs - Cincinnati , Florence KY , Columbus , Dayton , Indianapolis - this is just off the top of my head. XCN region has no HR.

    There are 3 FACs on this list alone.

    Agreed! Although I believe we are at a point of absolute fractures which are breaks. It’s going to come apart at this rate.

    Why do we always hear stuff on these Northeast terminals. What about all those in the Midwest and Western US?

    Oregon, Arizona, Idaho, California, Texas etc..

    Stress shows First at the core terminals that do a high volume of business. Outlying terminals that do lower volumes generally run much better
    We have “country club” terminals in our region that have never seen much pressure and the guys their are always perplexed by our problems. When on occasion drivers from these barns come to our terminal to work in the past ( during crisis periods) they return home with their tail between their legs thanking god the work at the terminals they do.

    Chris M looks to run it himself until a replacement is found. We don't need much here. We run ourselves, mostly. Two of the three FOMs could be TMs if they wanted. The HR guy was in operations for years and slides over to help out as needed. The girls in the office are on point and keep things in line. This is a barn where most everyone gets it and is on the same page. There are outliers. Can't help that. But for the most part.

    Finger crossed we get a good one. Last one was a great guy. But was maybe " too " nice. Hoping they don't jump the other direction and stick us with a real asshat next.

    I had heard the XSB TM was leaving, but didn't want to say. Is he also gone?

    I don't think it's going to come apart because the cracks are going to be patched up with new TM's who will do it more the XPO way, whatever that is, part of which involves doing it for far less money than their predecessors.

    I agree “IF” they can find replacements in a reasonable amount of time and their quality people they will find ways to make cuts to do things for even less

    This ain’t news at all. The writing is on the wall. If you don’t believe it, you are a fool.

    Like everything Jacobs has ever said. Phase us out. Phase the more profitable parts of the company in. Move away from next day service and into economy freight. Focus on strengthening last mile and intermodal. More international freight. Money money money. Results matter. All that stuff.

    I'm sure it's along the lines of what's in the quarterly and yearly calls detailing the direction of the company and and the current state of affairs.

    It's just that Sucker made it seem ( to me ) maybe he had a new or different take due to the fact he knew a former TM. You know , a man on the inside ... A peep behind the curtain , if you will , but , I guess I got my hopes up:apologetic:
