    So what are you saying? They just closed a terminal or are closing? One to watch since Ward Trucking partners with them.

    OMG
    If Benton has gone the way of the DoDo bird, there's an old saying:
    "When Atlanta catches a cold, the South catches pneumonia".

    Benton serviced every industrial park in Atlanta, any Shipping Management person knew this. Is was our 'Out Card' when we argued over Rates.

    If Benton is gone, there's no viable industrial parks in Atlanta, and I am fully aware of Banker's Circle going belly up as well as Boggs Road. FIB has been in the pits for such a long time giving directions has turned boreing.

    Jimmy Carter Industrial Park is nearly totally vacant.

    May not make CNN Headline News, but this is another bang on the Death knell, and I heard it loudly.

    Is my butt showing?

    The poster did not read is all. They just closed a few terminals. Times are tuff for us all right now. I still see Benton on the road.

    :butt kiss:


    I know when I'm an innocent human being and I've lost my mind.

    I just can't find the right hole to put it in!
