    Maybe they'll lease a bunch of gently used Ford Transit vans....and use them on linehaul when they're short on tractors.


    Limited to 62 mph, of course.

    How the Amazon works is we pick up skidded shipments in bulk (I've seen a 15 lot of Stanley steamers) from vendors that sell on Amazon and we take the shipment to Amazon fullfillment centers. Similar to the way Walmart freight works except we have been sending a full load out of SL to Joliet of just Amazon for the fullfillment center up there. There's a fullfillment center here in SL as well and we have been running freight there from other terminals. This is a new way Amazon is moving freight from there sellers to the new fullfillment centers.

    Nobody remembers the horror stories from ABF local cartage. If we're only delivering to centers it shouldn't be bad too handle.

    No hand freight. All skids. No home deliveries.

    for now griz for now. They're still working out the finer points of delivering 30-40 home deliveries off a '53.

    Customer says:
    "Oh yes, we have trucks in here all of the time, pull right in".
    They fail to say that it's UPS and FedEx delivery trucks that fit in there.

    After driver pulls in driveway customer says " geez, I didn't realize that you had a big truck".
    :duh:
