    Exhibit 10 shows two meet and turns from 402 to 705...meeting 423 and 754 drivers. 402 to 705 currently pays 260 miles. Exhibit 10 shows 402 to 705 paying 224 miles. Where did the other 36 miles go? Are these turns running out of 411 instead of 402?

    They have a hard time adding up overtime on your check and getting it right.
    Or adding up their own numbers let alone the distance between two places.
    They make everything more difficult than it really is.
    Everything.
    But. When it come to the miles. Which is really money. It stays in their pockets.
    That's where it went.
    They could make it simple. Not going to work anyway.
    It's still just a proposition. They have alot to hash out.

    Meet will probably/can't at a terminal. You have to find out the meet location.
    The terminal is in lakes Park, GA the meet says Valdosta, Ga.

    By the mileage it looks like a meet in Adel GA exit 39. They need a trucks top with a restaurant to save money.

    Don't forget the unique way we name terminals.
    St. Paul, MN is really in Burnsville, MN.

    Meets and Turns from Atlanta to Florida drivers at other companies are usually in Hahira, GA....Valdosta, Ga or Lake City, Florida. They are at places where there is 24/7 food service....705 is in LAKE PARK, GA....a few miles South of Valdosta, GA and still in the same County.

    As per the MOU, PTS (For now) will be allowed to run to Orlando, FL, the new DC....they will service the Tampa and Ft.Meyer terminals which where big lay down runs for Atlanta 402.Eight (8) Atlanta 402 drivers will be following their work to Tampa, FL to run meet and turns with Atlanta 402, unless the COO Committee makes any changes in the FINAL decision.
