    My thoughts exactly. Although I'm not as dumb as I would have them believe.

    Wouldn't be a good buy , first of ward doesn't cover the whole coast. At the present time they have some over lapping terminals. Also would be a euipments match problem , for ward is mostly a van operations. They would want to buy a well established , profitable ltl carrier that is for sell at a good price. Also descent terminals and a good solid outbound freight. There is no problem with inbound going there. Tolls, higher fuel prices , etc . Would come into play

    Ward doesn't cover new England direct , interline. We already do that ourselves. With ward you are only gaining 3 states. Look at their webb and you will see what I am referring to. It's just my opinion

    Where we need help in my opinion is by adding another terminal north or west side of atl. Every one has 2 or more . Would take a ton of pressure off atl. P & d operation

    It was mentioned in the Q1 conference call, but no timetable was given. New Jersey along with Pennsylvania was thrown out there. I will believe it when I see it. Expansion has been a "murmur" for quite a while now.
