    I heard he's gone too. Where's he going? SAIA? Or Pyle? To take our work.

    One second ya get hope....and then YRC is mentioned as replacement .....and the second is gone and ya go immediately back to the hopelessness of it all. Bummer.

    We’ll see more and more turmoil trying to fix the numbers so they can squeeze another five years out of the yes men!!!!

    I doubt Pyle or SAIA would take him. I heard Todd McCloud is gone too, that he resigned and is leaving at the end of the month.

    The ATA probably has a great job lined up for him for ruining another union company for them.

    I heard the new great idea at UPS is for people to come and use their own cars for home deliveries. Kind of like a delivery "contractor".

    Maybe our board should catch on with the times and get a President willing to bring his own corporate office and computers and phones and stuff....provide his own insurance and stuff like he's in business for himself....no tax write offs though...those are reserved only for the company.

    Or maybe they should save money with the great business model of getting the president from a temp agency for execs...where the temp agency cuts his check and provides his benefits.
    ....all kinds of great money making options out there.

    Lead by example.

    Complete joke. New Penn had some very good people running the company, Yellow takes over and pushes them all out because they insisted on micro managing them. They hire the incredibly incapable Foust and give him and his cohorts complete freedom to run the company into the point of embarrassment. Bouncing Foust fixes nothing his whole upper team needs to be kicked to the curb and they need to get some of the New Penn people back to get this company running the way it should.

    Any word on how much it costs to get rid of this guy ? I'm sure he had a parachute.

    well unless he takes swankee and coolinsworth with him, nothing really changes with the running of the company. and probably a whole handful more of the underlings..... put them in a big shipping container and send it off to india...

    Seems odd that YRC has not released a statement on this.

    do you guys relize, that faust, swankee and collinsworth, have collectively destroyed what was a top notch company called npme??...while , yes we all know were not npme for a while now, these 3 clowns, put in charge, have just about totally destroyed this company.. a lot of long time customers have had enough, said good bye. we cant even get freight from balt. via 03 and deliver it to Fredrick md. gaurented anymore on time...we used to do that with our eyes closed!!!I'm sure ever terminal can come up with the same kind of example..loads of freight sit in boston un delivered...and know plan to make it right..maybe they cam blame the hurricane in florida on bostons delema...that is the yrc way...and yet these 3 morons get to walk away with money in there pocket.. well one for sure, nothing official on the other two..and all the while here we are working at 15% discount and all the other crap we lost....these 3 fired american workers so they could out source our bills to india, guess what, many loads of freight have traveled up the highway with out bills stating whats in the trailers, even the dreaded hazmat, but they said run it...all to try to save money ... they obviously don't know how to run a profitable trucking company, they got private equity firm mentality, cut cut cut, instead of actually being able to make a great profit by running a great company on the up and up...than theres the payroll out sourcing, better watch your pay like never before...when it goes om line for real...these clowns are deperate... for every stinking penny... .we got a new pres. , true a yrc guy, the balls truly in his court...he does have a chance to turn this company around...depends on his mentality...theres still a handful of npme people left at most all terminals that know what next day means....4th quarter of 2017 should be interesting!!!

    Daddy Don & Rat face Swanke absolutely destroyed Roadrunner when they took over. Back handed deals, under the radar numbers fudging and total incompetence. I had the unfortunate privilege of sitting in a room with Wayne while he bragged about how much money he lost the company.

    The guy was so stupid, a perfect balance of arrogance and ignorance rolled into one rat faced coward.
    The guy would literally have a new plan every day....put on a hour conference call about "how we're gonna do things from now on", only to do a conference call the next day telling us to do the opposite.

    All the while Daddy Don would just sit there like a sedated old man smiling looking out the window mumbling about his kids.
