    Was told we are loading new Estes trailers with our freight to send west via the rail. Interesting.

    shouldn't you be starting a rumor they're buying us out, and we're all end tailing to the bottom of their board???

    At times CGT has a row of new Estes trailers we load and then rail to their destination. Cheaper than purchase transportation

    Estes OWNS most of YRCW-Holland terminals and leases them back to them , so maybe Estes is looking to expand and BUY more terminals with the clause that they get to haul some of your freight as part of the leasing deal ?? Estes is a good company to lease from !

    When Viking bought new Wabash trailers, Yellow would pick them up, load their freight on them and rail them west. When empty, they would be delivered to us.

    If you have been around the freight business at all, this practice has been going on for 30 years....

    I had Estes pickup my new hat from Texas and they filled it with a pup's worth of freight and it got railed to SoCal where XPO picked it up from UPS Freight and Team BRG-Wong delivered it to me in LAST.

    I hear California is trying to pass regulations limiting the capacity of hats.

    Stop being rational. We like drama and unsubstantiated rumors on Trucking boards.

    I hear Fedex is buying Estes and J.B. Hunt is buying Southeastern Freight Lines.

    See? Isn't this more fun?
