    What is he doing right here? Showing how much of a raise he will authorize? Or maybe he's showing how much "love" he'll give the drivers.

    No no no he’s showing you how much time you have before he really shows the love and replaces you with driverless trucks!

    Not 100% sure but I think the computer program that has L/H all f****d up is preXPO

    Edit the app is preXPO I'm not sure when they started using it

    It says to me that your barn hired a bunch of seriously dumb ass dock workers. You and I both know a CDL with tanker, doubles/triples and haz-mat is money in the bank. Those dock workers need to get a clue or be happy feeding along the bottom.

    A lot of those dock workers shouldn't even be driving a forklift. They would be even dangerous with a pallet jack

    Hey , I've talked to them and tried to reason with them. One has an early start time and doesn't want to go to the bottom of seniority behind drivers that he starts in FRONT of now.

    Even though he can do double or better on his w2 , he cares more about the long hours and night starts on linehaul.

    I don't think that Con-Way or CF ever intended to sell trailers to anyone else. Remanufacturing and re-using trailers limits liability. A company I worked for before Con-Way sold an old trailer and was sued when the trailer was involved in an accident 2 years later.

    You may be entirely correct. When you go to the website for XPO Logistics Manufacturing the seem to honestly be in business. Maybe it's a different story when you call or email them talking REAL numbers?

    Sounds like you are from XPP. I’ve been working here for over 13 years and I sat twice last week, once this week (Monday). Don’t forget Monday was a holiday.

    Not sure a third party is gonna save the day for you. Considering the up tick. If I were sitting, I'd be working somewhere else. Freight is moving. What the hell are you not doing something about it ? Even if you think third party is the answer, they ain't gonna stop vias.

    They see the way we are treated and want no part of it. Can you really blame them ?

    2015. That's the newest tractors I've seen. Does XPO have some on the way?

    They took the new tractors away a few years ago saying they need to go somewhere that will put more miles on them. Now Sterlings are back and drivers are supposed to burn them up. At the same terminal that doesn't run enough miles to keep the newer tractors.

    How many miles until a tractor is done? Why not put the tractors that need to be "burned up" at terminals that run the most miles?

    Did I miss something?

    That makes them *cheaper* , my fault , more affordable when you get the scratch and dent/salvage/bent frame/flood tractors.

    All joking aside , the more complex an advanced they make these trucks , the harder it is to work the bugs out.

    Bradley Jacobs on hiring more salespeople and support for salespeople

    We did raise our organic growth targets up about a point or two, and one of the reasons we did that is because we’re investing in future growth. So one of those things, let’s go through them one by one. We are experiencing a very favorable LTL market so we’ve hired another 90 LTL sales and support people in the last 60 days. We’re going to hire another 80 over the next 60 days. So we’ll have hired another 170 LTL sales and support people by the end of the first quarter. So that’s one investment.

    From the 4Q conference call

    Bradley Jacobs on how much money XPO spends...on technology

    And then the fourth area that we’re investing for long-term growth, even though it may be a temporary drag on short-term earnings, is technology, which is our secret sauce, which is our competitive advantage. And we’re now investing over $450 million a year in technology, and that’s benefiting our customers across the board.

    From 4Q conference call
