    Hey has anyone heard any thing about Saia buying New England Motor Freight. Just curious, maybe it is just some more bravo sierra floating around the barn

    If there is anything I've learned in my 40+ years in this business its that those sort of things you will never see coming. Those things never leave the boardroom until the day it's announced. It's all just speculation.

    We had a guy quit the Con-job to run at NEMF. He says there is some partnership between the two companies. As NEMF doesn't go very far south or west and SAIA doesn't go very far north and east. He also says as soon as the old man dies NEMF is for sale. There maybe a tabled agreement that is conditional. He also says that the union at NEMF is run by the old man and is no hurdle in anything.

    Just what I heard from one truckers mouth. With the economy like this there are going to be acquisitions and consolidations. Just look at this XPO thing. WTF, really ?

    These cycles occur over and over in trucking. A business gets big and leaves a space for someone small to take advantage and then they get big and then it repeats.
