    The tighter you (properly) stack and pack a trailer the less damage you will have.

    So wait, you mean to tell me the company should incur extra expenses and floor load trailers? If that was the case companies would go out of business.

    As a business owner you would be trying to cut costs, you do it in your personal life, so please explain your reasoning for such thinking. Honestly.

    New Penns in been in business 80 years ? Has always floor loaded. Some argue that the new system is costing them in freight claims, comp claims and customer service. I think high and tight is cost effective when you have the luxury of taking the time to do it right. But New Penn being a next day carrier does not have that luxury.
    And why are guys sitting while line haul is still running very late every night to the point that P and D guys are waiting for their peddle runs?

    I'm not sure how New Penn is even a profitable business. I worked as a casual dockworker in Maspeth.

    And everything was floor loaded back then and docked in cages. No handhelds or modern day technology. And the dock workers taking an hr break.

    But it bothers me that the guys are complaining that the companies should put less freight in each trailer..I just cant see he logic in that at all.

    You may not see it, but at one time New Penn maintained one of the best operating ratio's in the LTL business bar none. Then along came YRC....

    I did a short stint with New Penn in '89 and they had a mix of freight that permitted them to floor load with little top loading. I felt like they targeted the freight that they wanted and needed and left the rest behind. When moving freight overnight and trailers come in at 0800 to be on the street that day there is not enough time to pick through a floor to ceiling 45'er (which is what they had).

    your dead on. Linehaul comes in at 900 or 1000 am with 50 bills to be strpped and loaded onto peddle runs that were scheduled to be on the street at 800 am

    YRC says is cost effective. Losing customers is never cost-effective. Go after more garbage freight.

    Remember when people that were in the trucking business ran trucking companies? Now the bean counters run them and this is the results they get.

    You can keep THINKING us out of business if youwant.
    I prefer MOVING FREIGHT. Thats the floor load system. Damaged and late freight doesnt keep customers. PA roads are like riding waves...floor loads prevent damage.
    700 ton of metal a day
    and now you tell me the world's changed
    Once I made you rich enough
    Rich enough to forget my name.........Springsteen......Younstown.

    8am start. Average time leaving yard? 10-1030!! Why? 8-12 inbound loads arriving late every morning. Why?
    Yrc's "load optimization plan"
    Use 53's with logistics bars. Load them full even if it means sitting at dock waiting for freight. Takes longer to load. More damages, longer to unload!
    But hey. They might be able to cut a road guy and not pay him. Smh

    Doing it the old way ran the risk of having to pay out bonuses so they changed the program up.
