    While volumes are down the LTL market has multiple opportunities for growth. If you give superior service than your competition then you can grab market share. Surely OD can afford to take a hit to their outstanding Operation Ratio. Market share is their. We can grab some of that with competitive pricing and service.

    Im not sure it's very profitable to haul garbage freight for free.

    We already haul tons of garbage freight. The sales reps should work on weeding out that crap and get more decent stuff.

    Houston & New Orleans regions were to dependent on the oil & gas business, to keep them busy. Bad things happen when your not diversified. Now they are having to take that garbage freight to keep everything moving.:poster oops:
