Discussion in 'Saia' started by joes bar and grill, Oct 26, 2016.
It's St.Johnsbury and there slogan was to serve you better.And they did it better than anyone.
How do they plan to cover the Eastern Shore of MD/DE and beach freight? Run it all out of their Baltimore terminal or open an end of line barn over there? Send guys down from Philly? Any thoughts?
Use PT to take it to a company that can service it.
I see they ran an add looking for drivers. Is there an opening date yet.
Where is the old one at?
Is this the Baltimore location? I should have mentioned that.
Ok. Just wondering if anyone had any information on the Baltimore location hiring status.
I've heard they will begin processing applications for Baltimore in a couple weeks, the newly hired TM is currently in Cleveland for training. A few guys from my barn have applied, and have already received offers
Where is your barn?
People up here in New England are clamoring for the arrival of Saia. When do you current employees think Saia will begin operations in Rhode Island or Massachusetts?
Possibly this yr
The official word is that they're opening up four more terminals this year, they're probably going to open up New York State first then New England.
Saia move into the Wilkes Barre area for a few months now & i know they got a well
known salesmen from New Penn, and i rarely see your trucks at any of my stops & if i do its someone i have never seen before. I thought they would have been more aggressive to drum up business....
It takes a long time to establish a presence in the Northeast. SAIA is moving slowly by design. They must have the right people in place and be ready to handle the business and take care of the customers. They aren’t there yet. If they start out with poor service and a bad reputation it’s very hard to recover from that. When they are ready they will begin the push. They have invested too much to walk away now.
