    Have no clue but they want highly skilled and experienced, hand picked folks like me but will take new guys and put them through the Big E school. Said we have the freight, just need the drivers

    500 new day cabs, 250 new sleepers, 3,500 new trailers and about 300 new forklifts I think. I don’t use forklifts so I tuned out on that one.

    I'm assuming a forklift is one of those yellow things I see on the dock with a silver beer keg on the back?

    Yeah that’s it. That would’ve made a Conway driver real happy for sure.
