    Many moons ago when FedEx bought American Freightways the rear door on the AF trailer were red. I dropped my van I pulled every day in the same door it was red on Friday night when I left and Monday morning was white with a FedEx logo on it. Over the weekend a company came in and didn't paint the door they replaced it with a new one. They found it was more cost efficient to tear off the red door and install a new white door with all the logos the only they had to add was the trailer number and placards. The door was not new but as they went along they kept the best door panels and repainted then and did swaps over the weekend. It was nice to have a smooth good operating door and in the process a lot of tel door got fixed. Also there stickers stay on and didn't peal or crack.

    Oh okay. I've not seen those ones. I see the day cab guys with intermodal cans. Their tractors say last mile on the door too.

    This was not done with all AF trailers, nor all of Viking's blues. Some were painted, and it shows. That being said, I was a road driver at FXF so I can only speak for the pups. In my experience, only pups that break a door get a replacement.

    All they did those to were the trls that stayed at the terminal. I just know my van and a few others were replaced.
    I will say one thing FedEx didn't drag there feet like this place is on the rebranding

    Maybe it's cause XPO doesn't have nearly the budget that Fdx has for such projects as re-branding.. From other posts on this issue of re-branding...it was said that the reason the logos are coming off, cracking, etc., is cause they are made from inferior materials. Remember, BJ want to take costs out of this company and or get projects,( i.e. re-branding), done on the cheap. Consequently...the re-branding has been put on hold till they figure it out and perhaps realize that they've got to spend a little more in order to get a quality job on the re-branding.
    Let's hope that they get it right soon. I hate seeing mixed branded combinations going down the road.

    It's going to be a while until I pull my first full XPO set. I have pulled two XPO trailers and at one time had a XPO dolly but yet to drive a XPO tractor or get all four pieces for the complete set. Would be sweet if someone manages it if they would post the pic or a video of it.

    I know that it's a daunting task to re-brand that much equipment.....but dang, that combo looks awful.
    Oh well, as long as your checks don't bounce it's all good.

    They're the best tractors we have. Unlike the Freightliners, the Sterlings start every day.

    When my Freightliner doesn't start they give me another one. Sometimes it'll start and I don't get 20 miles down the road and I gotta turn back. Had one turn to :shit: as soon as I got to 60 mph. It was great in the yard and out to the freeway and then straight to code red. All the lights. Crazy noises. Called line haul. Called the terminal. Limped back. Got a different Freightliner. A/C. Sat radio. Comfy chair. Just a different number. And got paid the extra miles and the extra hook and didn't get to the FAC until 0330. Just in time to catch loads the other way. It's all good.

    Soooooooooooo what's the latest on the re-branding? Are we still being held up w/ decal issues?
    The rate that this project is going...BJ will be lucky to finish rebranding our equipment in about another year or two at the earliest.
