    I havnt been here that long but you’d think a place with such low moral would try to improve it. We had a meeting this morning to tell us we lost 15 million dollars last year. Time to start looking again.

    Don’t put to much into it right now, Of course they are going to start crying they lost money and they are not making money, It’s almost contract time.

    This company is doing zero and I mean ZERO to help out their situation. A situation that they created by the way. All we hear is safety, safety, safety but safety only seems to matter if it does not cost money.
    How many working hand trucks do you have at your terminal for dock use? We've got 2 and they both have no handles on them. Just wait till someone gets hurt trying to balance freight on a hand truck with no handles.

    Many young people on here are probably asking who the hell Frank S. Is and when he said that. :17142:

    Lost 15 million? We had a meeting and Todd told us we made money but not as good as 2016. They talked about improving revenue. Sounds like we hauled a bunch of cheap freight in 17 and that didn't work. I don't think we would be open today if we lost 15 million in one year. I agree with the hand truck and equipment stuff. Ours was old and nobody would buy anything but Todd said we are stocking up to have the tools now. Better late then never.

    well something went wrong at npme or they wouldn't have fired faust!!! i mean really wrong cause we all know it went south soon as yrc took control..although , till faust swankee and collinsworth did there little " lets be another roadrunner, piece of :shit: company that's the way to do it," dance we still had npme people that knew how to move freight..its hard to believe we made any money as bad as we operate any more..if we did, this is an easy business....to lose 15 million, that's a lot for company our size anymore i would think, even as bad as we operate...not sure i believe that one...maybe down 15 mil over previous year..thats bad enough...but never fear...new penn nation... we have a new leadership and its going to take us to the top again!! so far, we have road runs out early every night and getting back early, ...should change the cycle and get city out and peddeling sooner, thus , a glimpse of the good old days..we will see...but for the life of me, i cant understand how you can fire faust and still keep swankee!!! they are one in the same...

    Wait a second? Todd is a good person??? Is he not the same Todd that hired all the human garbage? Ya know the ones who were caught steeling from your comany....... Do you know what his position was before the Titanic set sail (The YRC takeover)??? Do some research, This guy has never seen the inside of a truck! He might be a nice guy to go out have a beer with but thats not going to save the ship from going down.
    REMOVE ALL THE CANCER, ITS THE ONLY WAY OUT!

    bro hold on, you called people "human garbage" and insinuated Todd's a cancer ? dude slow all the way down. while he didn't hire the cream of the crop, you're definitions are way off. Todd is an original New Penn guy. here's a news flash.....while they have to follow orders, none of the originals agree with anything YRC has done

    I’m not name calling. But, Todd’s not an original New Penn guy he came after the acquisition.
    He Came to 06 as some Computer engineer or something and went to 07 as a TM back to 06 as a TM bumped up to regional manager when Newton resigned don’t know what his title is now I was told he’s running saftey or something.

    you're right. i met him after the acquisition by Roadway. he became the TM at 07 in 2005 i believe. he's currently a regional manager. bottom line i wouldn't blame him for this company's misfortune

    hey, big r guy, heres one for ya, here in camp hill, we load up all freight comeing to yrc for what ever reason, put it on trailer, usually a yrc trailer, and off to Carlisle it goes, what 10 miles away...2-4 loads a day, every day... most we get 5 bucks to pick up and yrc 125 bucks to line haul and del. , probably exagerateing a bit , but you get my drift..you don't have trailer there, so we use our own, now you come in drop one of yours and off you go with npme trailer...this happens over and over, so now theres 10 npme trailers in Carlisle sitting there empty that you wont bring back to us...i guess not cost effective...so , we are short trailers but still we wont send a bobtail up and bring them back, guess not cost effective for us either...so now we have road guys in balt amd Trenton and phila. getting paid an hour or more waiting for an empty...all because we gave yrc the use of our trailers that paid us damn near nothing...for freight that the shipper said no yrc comes in here to get, and other reasons ...so what do we have???? we now have a company...npme acting and operating as disfuctional as yrc freight..that is why the regionals operated at a 98 or and yrc at a 99 or for the 4th qtr... while every other ltl had good results 4th qtr wise but yrcw!!! this is operations not working, all your tech isn't going to fix this dumb ass :shit: that goes on daily....nobody cares!!! all the while , with all my experience, I'm the lowest paid in the ltl industry...hhmmm, there is nobody at npme left, that they didn't fire to come and say, hey you got to vote to save npme for our family we have had!!! and you can tell cause nothing is efficient , its all disfuntional, and all just a bunch of lies about whats happing at npme, our reputation is slowing running out, thanks to the current management that is in place...howard , i hope you see what has been thrown into you lap, and it aint pretty!!!

    The stuff you addressed in your post is exactly what makes so many os us shake our heads, So much of it is just common sense, I often think they should do an experiment and throw a few of us in operations to see what can be done. I’ll bet a lot on my experience as a former dock worker and current driver over any of their guys diplomas and no experience any day of the week.
