Are they just rumors, or does anyone know of these so called major accounts coming on board
I heard John Deere, walmart,and some amazon,
Again, I was just wondering, been hearing drivers on road talking about those 3,and of course we all know drivers out here, we speak nothing but factual truths,hahaha
Cheap freight, cheaper yet, and real cheap..... throw in Home Depot , and you will have 4 of a kind....
It wouldn't surprise me then,as our parent company seems to want everything but the garbage can, and I'm sure they will want that to,....and we will even Discount it 70%,,,they are assholes
Walmart and Home Depot are probably YRC's 2 largest accounts now.
Thanks for the info was just wondering,
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
Figures,management still selling dreams, with all this hiring going on, just figured something was going 5
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
Get all the Major accounts they want , but when they can't Hire nobody to move them what good does it do ???
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.
Haven't heard that, but all the guys hired in the last 4 months (6) were laid off.
Are you at an End of the line terminal? Would appear to be the ones getting the layoffs?
Somethings up.. lost a couple guys today (3) casuals
Break bulk here SL here
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.
I heard a "Big Announcement" coming next month by YRCW.
