    Nice article. I noticed we are looking for a dispatcher there, so I figured it was close.

    I wish that they would consider building a new terminal in MEO. I know that land is expensive and there's all the red tape, but getting 2 sets of triples and a couple of sets from California is a nightmare. Years ago, we had a drop lot for line haul. Lot's of room.

    I was at the Montgomery Terminal on Thursday, really nice facility. I think they just opened last week. They are installing the fuel pumps now.

    FBN--Maybe they can get ahold of reddaway and swap yards. Plenty of room over there. Thats what Fedex did in Kent, They took Reddaway and Reddaway moved into the Watkins/FEDEX National yard. Maybe they could sweeten the pot a little too, YRC would never turn down MONEY at this stage in the game...

    With us hauling our freight into British Columbia ourselves we were told we should expect a terminal in Bellingham or Mt. Vernon, WA very soon.

    That would also indicate an expansion of BillyLo Mowing Service also, to include all new facilities in the NW...

    That will be good for my side business. I cannot wait until we move further north as I get sick of having to run 100 mile peddle routes up there to pick up the slack.

    That could be the new terminal being built in Garland Tx..... Should be open soon. One of my Dallas buddies went by there recently and said it was almost finished.

    Wish ATL could get one... not gonna happen though, they're fixing to redo our linehaul building. Don't see them spending money just to leave... that's a YRC thing.

    It's coming much sooner than you think. We pull more freight out of there than FXF's Everett terminal. OD won't put up with sending four guys a day 110 miles away to Whatcom cty.

    That's all he talks about when I see him is getting a terminal north of Seattle. These new guys here are in big denial and hope it never happens because it'll throw a wrench into their work flow.
