    Walmart and Home Depot are probably YRC's 2 largest accounts now.

    Our TM was telling us that "we would start getting a large quantity of JD freight beginning Nov. 28. We'll Nov. 28 came and went, (and let's just say read my previous comment on lay offs). What "supposed" to happen never transpired at my barn anywho

    Might be some truth to the Amazon as they just completed one huge Amazon distribution center in the same complex as the SL terminal and have a second one being built there too

    Sefl just dropped 20 mil annual revenue of Home Depot because there was no profit. An actual loss hauling it. I was wondering which carrier would agree to those rates

    I was told John Deere went with XPO so they layed off the new hires at my barn.

    Dock only casuals that is. Mgmt trying to flex lol. Minutes after I heard they just put 4 guys on their 30 today.. Road and city. We have a 170 man city board. Rumor is they want 200 by Spring. Somethings going on either booming or a union bust movement. More scab new hires equal easily influenced Mgmt incentives to bust coming to a RTW state near you.

    On a side note watch this Carrier AC thing be all good until a contract can't be negotiated with the union. Step 2 place the blame on unions being the reason jobs can't stay in America. Step 3 Federal RTW. My personal conspiracy theory haha.
