    It is kind of funny that you guys are talking about this... I just pulled out of my closet a new CF hat and started to wear them again. My friends that know me asked me why I was wearing that old hat... I simply told them that I am prouder to wear this hat than the a hat from last company that I worked for. CF lives on!!!!

    At least here in Erie Pa.

    Funny you mention that, I started wearing my old "CF Chicago" hat while on vacation in Wisconson last week. A few people did double takes to see it and one older guy asked me " Did'nt they go out of business ?" I said no they just changed their name to conway and fired everybody......he gave me a lost look.

    No... you need to give the benefit of thought... there is no way I will work for Conway...after CF it was Central Transport for awhile then Holland till they closed the terminal. The Holland terminal in Erie did more bills per day than any other trucking company in town... so go figure close the terminal and run it out of Cleveland and Buffalo... longer stem times are better right???:ranting2:

    Also the newest terminal and I think the largest (40 doors) in Erie that has dock bumpers... for that cold winter wind that comes off lake Erie... sits empty. Go figure.:TR10driving03:

    See CF will always live on in the hearts of us who worked for the best freight company in the business. They didn't get the MILES AHEAD slogan by accident
