    Not neccessarily Guardrail

    For example, Estes RENTS a terminal in Rockford, IL (75 doors or so) and just bought the Holland terminal across the street from them (80 doors). Where do you think Estes will end up if YRC goes out?

    Go Estes Go! I worked for 5 years each at Estes and Yellow Transportation and I can tell you that Yellow treats it's employees like dog s@#t while Estes treats employees like family. That's been my experience and I would love nothing more than to see Estes run Yellow down the road to bankruptcy. I'm currently a commercial constuction products salesman and the first and only LTL carrier I called for my shipping needs was Estes. Keep it up guys, your company rocks!

    If you crunch the numbers on how much freight would be pushed into the market on the heels of a Yellow bankruptcy, you'd see that most YRC employees would easily find work through Yellow's competitors. You have to understand that YRC forces their employees to work almost twice the hours of a regular LTL carrier. Out of driving hours? You can still drive a forklift till you drop. Hence, for one Yellow employee = 60+ hours of work per week....that's 1.5 times what an Estes employee works. So, if 600 (just an example) YRC employees lose their job when the company folds, that is equivalent to 900 jobs needed to pick up the slack. Win, win.
