    Hi Guys, just wondering if anyone has some info on Dayton coming to Omaha. Last fall, a couple of Dayton guys showed up at the old Vitran terminal, looking for info to buy the building. There are quite a few drivers, and also a former terminal manager interested to know. We'd love a chance to work for Dayton if they come to town. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    There have been rumors about Wichita, Tulsa and Omaha, but one thing about Dayton is it just won't happen on a quick note. Unlike a few others out there just to have a terminal someplace Dayton won't do business like that unless it's well worth it.

    Wichita and Omaha have been talked about for over 5 years now. As for the 'well worth it', how do you explain Wis.Rapids, Peoria, Columbia MO, amoungst a host of other service centers that have been on the money loser list forever.

    Well if they would quit cutting rates they may be able to make money.

    Thanks for the responses guys, I heard, but cant confirm, that the gentlemen that were there looking at the building, told the former tm that they were looking to be in town sometime in Feb.

    When YRC was selling everything they could, Dayton did purchase some properties in markets that were not in Dayton's service area. A property on the Iowa side of the river was believed to have been part of a 'package deal' of terminals that YRC sold to Dayton Freight.
