Any new equipment orders at New Penn.;)
hell no. not that i have seen. i seen they sold some newer trailers and kept old junkers????
i did hear they acquired 30 or so 53' trailers from yrc logistics.
Sure hope they are in better shape then those Holland trailers they have been using
the "new" 53 footers I have seen used to be Ross clothing store trailers. I was told by mechanic we were getting 50 of them.
Loaded 53079 and 53091 at #23 last week. All used trailers but in great shape. The remaining 53's with barn doors in our fleet are a disgrace and need to be replaced if not done already.
Crazy I'm with ya on the crap Holland-Redstar trailers we have. The only new anything I've seen in the last 2 years is a new trailer door with the (HOLLANDREGIONAL.COM) logo on it. It's sad to be making money again and nothing to show for it. GRIZ
Any truth to the rumor we have old yellow freight swamp hqlley orange tractors getting npme stickers in camp hill ?
screw the new equipment. give me my money back!!!!
07 got rid of a bunch of trailers a couple weeks ago and a few tractors last week. Nothing new came in though. I saw one of those new 53's. It looks like they were spray painted white. You can still see the old ROSS sign underneath. Just horrible
We have 2 in KC said they were scraping yellow off and putting Holland on. They are Volvo's and pretty trashed
the sh#$ yellow tractors comeing into #03 are supposed to be going to holland, most so far were twin screw sterlings, but a twin screw volvo came in last week. it had 770+miles on it. first batch of trailers we got from , i guess yrc logistics,the ross trailers, i was told by the shop were not into bad of shape, npme was able to paint them with our logo and get them up to our standards, as much as possable with yrcw as our owners.there is another batch of yrc logistic trailers we get to fix up as NEW equipment, that are in pretty shi%$y shape on the inside as well as outside. the good thing is our shop guys are doing the work keeping guys with many years at npme working.
We got a few twin screw tractors that were YRCW logistics painted white that came down from MA. at YRC 615 not the best and not the worst
