    This is the cheapest and least effective system for doing this possible. XPO already said that vnomics will only last a couple more years. Which will line up with the scanners getting replaced and most likely everything will be done on the scanner at that point. Pay sheet, 8300 and log.

    The further we get from Con-way the better things will work. Right now XPO knows every single driver in it's fleet sits and stares at this thing for 3-5 minutes while it boots. And then has to punch in trailers and manifest numbers. Another 3-5 minutes will this equipment. They can eliminate 6-10 minutes of wasted time from each dispatch from every single driver in the system with updated technology.

    Results matter. The bottom line above all. He bought a mess. It was making money in spite of itself. He's going to make it make money for real. It's what this guy does.

    So true this guy bought a very big mess. I just wish some of the one on here crying about what XPO is doing just take there blinders off. All you had to do is walk around and look at the computer system, and equipment. I believe Con-way was heading down the path that YRC is in now

    The old way of doing things worked just fine back in the day. E-commerce and electronic everything has changed landscape of business. The nuts and bolts are the same. Get it here and take it there. But everything is tracked in route. Lanes are priced to the freight. Time is money. If the wheels ain't turning you ain't earning. As true now as it ever was.

    Sure is. System wide. Monday to Thursday, loads arriving after 3:00 am are fenced. Friday everything is worked. Service failures go back to the terminal that dispatched late.

    I was told it's system wide. Always possible different areas are set up differently.

    It sounds more hopeful than actual. In places where elogs have been rolled out has it improved drivers arrival times? ( since it's harder to massage an elog like a paper log )

    There is no hard and fast rule where I run. Late arrivals are taken on a case by case basis. Back in the day, we were the fastest carrier. Now that many others have caught up, we have no advantage. To fence all breakers after 3:00am system wide would not be a good idea, in my opinion (and with 13 years in, I'm still often the last driver to leave the FAC).

    Nothing is system wide. That's management speak for " why are you questioning me ? "
