My thoughts exactly. Although I'm not as dumb as I would have them believe.
Sorry, computer problems this morning.
Ya we dont need expanson....in my oppnion...lets make the existing company better
Tell us more "easygoing"
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 would be the best buy saia ever did...the over lapping terminals in would strengthen are market share in areas ware we are weak...the last 2 companys saia bought have been van operations
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
We only gained three states when we bought connection though...ward does close to 200 million a yr..
I still check in on this section once in awhile. Just not as much as when I worked here.
been hearing murmurings of terminals opening in pa in july anyone else hearing this chatter
Yeah... I heard it in CLT, BHM, and ATL.
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.
For what it matters this came from a tm up north
