    I know we use a lot of contractors, but why is JB hunt and XPO/Conway in our yard? Damn everyone gets a piece of Estes freight. Even see little mom n pop day cabs I'm here. Will
    It ever end?

    They're cheaper. They haul the stuff out where it's hard to get a loads out of. My only assumption

    Some customers will also ship volume via truckload carriers to a terminal, where it gets unloaded and split into LTL shipments.

    We have jb hunt at our terminal, we load home depot warehouse freight that we picked up on them and they pick them up and take them to the dc. We still take a couple of loads a day on our trailers also.
