    LTL Backhauls

    What you are going to see is LTL freight loaded on those empty containers heading back to Norfolk.
    Therefore taking work away from you linehaul drivers.:nono:

    I beleive that they are going to break the containers and cross dock the freight on to Wilson equip to run. Since the new terminal was built I been seeing Wilson run more containers out of the ports here than other LTL's.

    Whether the freight is floor loaded or palletized is a different story. Pulling a container is not the safest thing sometimes

    well we know what they are saying right now, but i agree with the back hauls,they will not like seeing the empty truck pass a term. up,so us line-haul guys might take a hit

    Short South as Mikeeee says

    we're talking about Norfolk, Nebraska aren't we:hysterical: Norfolk is in the southern part of the north or the northern part of the south.
