    Makes sense cause I heard Mildew is actually Rob Estes and he's engaging with his employees, that's almost 100% true, part time dock worker who just started filled me in on that

    All Canadian freight will be delivered by combo drivers , and they will be paid hourly. Based on hire date in that classification because seniority dissent matter here.

    It's my understanding we're running meets, so I was wondering if it'd be linehaul or combo. Speedy's been asking for guys willing to haul sets on our end since we can't anticipate what you guys will send to us.

    There was a rumor around here that Amazon made Rob an offer, but apparently Big E is not for sale. Ever...

This purchase will make us the 2 nd largest less than truckload carrier in the nation. This will take effect on June 15,details to follow.

    Oak harbor and reddaway would've been more believeable.

    What company could Estes purchase that would benefit them? I think the company would be better off spending money on bigger, newer terminals. Riverside would do well with a yard as big as West middlesex.
