    They still have a place in Dallas at the old USF Bestway terminal on Empire Central..............But they did close the big one in Irving.

    Two reasons for this post.....Wanted to clarify they are on a street off Empire Central .....can't remember the name.....And I just wanted my name to be the last one posting on this dead forum.

    Thought I'd chime in.... a buddy of mine worked there for a few months before returning to the oil fields (can't give it up haha). He had a starting pay of 20/HR, worked 50 hours a week on average last spring and there was OT after 50. I cannot speak to the benefits or vacation policies. I know his only complaint was at times coming in just to have to wait on a truck because they had none for him. His shift was 1pm to 11 pm roughly. He did not work the dock usually. This was in Fort Worth, TX.

    They're still alive in my neck of the woods. Small, but still around. I see them almost every day.

    I used to be a hostler @ the Irving Terminal,but it was shut down a few years ago.Damn that yard had so many potholes and it will take forever to locate a trailer.Heard half of them went to the FTW terminal and the rest to the Empire Central terminal.

    They are as far east as Nashville and I think most of Georgia , if not all of the state. Is there any rumors of Central Freight expansion into all of Tennessee???
