    that was a long time ago. Just do your job and he wont bother you. You wont have to look over you shoulder with him.

    If Newton is the regional VP, you will not be dealing with him. A terminal will have a local supervisor running the day to day operation. He will report to a Terminal Manager, who may be over multiple terminals, and who may have his main office at your terminal. If there is any trouble, it will come from the supervisor or the terminal manager. Freightgod54 is right, just do your job and let the others do their's, you'll be fine.

    he will probably be based out of Garry Rd. He spent most of his time at the New Penn terminal there. he lives close by.

    This is just my opinion but if Newton is the regional manager, He probably is hands off but certainly in the e-mail loop, with the finding and the acquisition of terminals, the linehaul service plan for the area, the plan for the accumulation of equipment, and the plan for hiring personnel, that are in other divisions such as sales, safety, human resources, and equipment maintenance. I would think that he is the guy that is going to have a strong voice in the hiring of his management team of terminal managers.

    from a supervisor point of view, hes on your side. If youre a driver or dockman, hes not a social type. But hes fair.

    Terminal space as mentioned above is at a premium in PHL metro area. Only other terminal avail might be Carolinas old building on Deer Rd and JJ Maloneys building but that is too small!
