Wonder if they are paying as well as the Ups Freight O/O. ¡LMFAOSHMSFOAIDMT!
I'm not liking the look of this.... bad road to be going down, imo.
I've never saw an outside carrier pull our pups. Have you?
Makes more sense. Why handle it twice? We're using sub service for the pull, let's load it to ride in pups once, rather than loading a long box, unloading it, then loading it on pups. Less handling, less damage.
The question is this an everyday sub service pull now being loaded onto pups?
Good question. The pic was taken on 6/26 or 27 at XHG. I can't make out the trailer numbers . I was told they were loaded and the driver left with 2 for XMI. If Some could make out the numbers at do a history on the trailers we could confirm.
Xhg = Hagerstown, Pa
Xmi = is it Milton, Wv?
Was there not a xmi driver at the fac? If not, they weren't sitting at home, I hope.
Is xmi a usual run for xhg? Xmi doesn't have a FAC do they?
Xmi is Milton,PA. And they are a FAC. I do believe they run Xhg. As has for a driver sitting and not running Xhg that would be suspicious since they sent 4 to 7 to Xab. And Albany is a lot smaller then Hagerstown.
I'm sure some with inside info will be along to help us figure it out. I doubt someone lost any work over this at this point.

I don't want to jump to any conclusions until we see more of it.
Honestly, I wouldn't be too worried about anyone being put out of work. Here's why:
1. Every carrier out there doesn't have enough drivers to move all the freight.
2. Subservice is more expensive than you think.
3. XPO needs you guys more than you need them, because you can go find another job anytime you want and they're going to struggle to replace you.
This isn't the days of old. We're not replaceable like we used to be. And sidelining a driver so subservice can pull it instead is a sure way to lose a driver you probably need.
The only carrier I know of that's actively screwing their drivers is UPS/UPSF. And considering they're supposed to be protected by the Teamsters, I'm not sure how they're getting away with it without the union's cooperation.
Well I don't like to spread hearsay and conjecture, but I do. What is that, a three, three and a half hour pull. I hope them drivers are at least making two dollars a mile, plus a fuel surcharge. It may be time to man the pitchforks and torches
Need a shop Stewart? Why? All you have to say is no. I in a barn with no shop Stewart and that all I would have to say.
Wow I'm surprised they found one of these sub service that has the doubles endorsement.
When you get away from what is standard then it cost goes up. I think most everyone is having a hard time coming out of the Con-Way stone age. Con-Way did thing there own way with nonstandard equipment which in the long run will cost the company more. Prime example are the tire 24.5 tire cost more the 22.5. Light trailer cost less to pull down the road. Look I think we are the only company that still drags around a spare tire on a dolly. That add weight cost more in fuel to pull down the road and it also weight thats not making any money.
Sub service doesn't drive forklifts
This company still needs it traveling dockworkers
the landing gear and gladhand on the right side is from back in the CF days, it was that way to keep the driver off of the roadside of the truck, the spare tire on the dolly is also a counterweight, try moving one without it.
