    Part of that is because many already have 1-2 other part time jobs already, with no benefits. So they work basically full time, and buy insurance.. just what the big companies want.

    Not a millenial. But thanks. I agree with your point that as long as you have a cdl and a good driving record, you will be working. Even if it’s driving a garbage truck or a city bus. The days of the perfect career are over.

    I just put 5 grand on XPO when it opens on Tuesday. Will sell when it hits $120. Should make a cool $1600. Pay off Christmas bill quick and easy.

    I like those !!

    Think behind the scenes, yes end of the mile would be good for purchase. Most trucks at the stores are JB bunt, Estes or some other Dedicated co, this can now be kept in house. HD uses tons of LTL to pu and Del to the stores, now can be kept in house. HD use dedicated carriers to bring freight into the warehouse- in house now. HD has lots of ocean containers picked up, keep that in house. They could combine logistics depts - save money. I still don’t believe this will happen nor do I work for XPO- just an outside point of view.

    Be careful. Some might accuse of you of being one of those greedy corporate lovers.

    It's not that much,national accounts are a small portion of YRC portfolios.It wasn't so 10 years ago before merger.It won't sting.They just under cut some one else's business.
