    Yes. Oswego is closing, I think at the end of this month. Then they're gonna open one up in markham to replace it.

    For us road drivers Markham will be better in my opinion. Oswego was never easy to get to. Markham seems more on a main road. I feel bad for the people that it makes their comute worse.

    I guess this i why they quit on Joliet , found a used terminal that is more cost effective.

    WOW I was in Chicago this week what a difference! The yard was empty it was so nice to not be on top of every one there. The down fall was it took 14 hours to get out. Markham was nice to big yard even bigger dock. Weird office two trailers.
    Does anyone know if they staffed it from Oswego McCook or both?

    I heard through the grapevine that Markham is only going to be a temporary lease as in 2-3 years as the plans in Joliet are underway, permits are approved, zoning etc., and they should be breaking ground soon.

    Apparently the location is right near the Amazon warehouse off of 80 and route 30 and is located on a forty acre plot of land.

    Has there been any update about this terminal opening? To me it seems weird that no one really knows what's going to happen or when it's going to happen. As a Markham driver it'd be nice to know what my future is going to look like in the coming months. All anyone seems to have is opinions and rumors they've heard throughout the system.

    A couple months back. Joilet opens in May.

    Nice. I guess I shouldn't have given them a throwaway email account when I had to verify for ESS.
