    The newest trailers on the truckload side are being branded XPO and some slightly new ones were left blank. As of now I only know of one XPO branded truckload truck, and not completely sure what it's being used for and why it's the only one. Most of the new tractors that have been assigned recently just say conway truckload in red on the door only, no blue stripes or any logo up top. I've seen a couple of ghetto rebranded trucks with an XPO sticker over Conway; they still have the blue stripes. Other than that I'm completely clueless on how much of the old stuff they are actually going to rebrand

    I told him that he should done that. But after a second thought, I told him that he should have put a lock on the pin. :draw:

    Good one...you're killing me. He may have lost his xpo pup...but he can at least take some consolation in the fact that it is at least now making the company some money. :15:

    No... Don't do that. I watched a driver try and pin up several times. Kept banging and banging, wouldn't pin up. I looked under and said "ummm... There's a king pin lock on this trailer." What's that? Was the response. I told him to check with the FOS and walked away.

    It's literally all that is left. Any one with a clue is long gone.

    A high hook is even better. I saw a guy do it, damm near put the trailer into the cab of the truck. Then he bitched because someone dropped the trailer to high. I seen guys with sleepers do it, but we drive daycabs that have rear windows. Hey buddy that thing attached to you shoulders is a neck and it is used to turn your head. Then he had no clue how to get out from under the trailer.

    Thats a very ignorant thing to say. You rode with one and so therefore our school graduates are no good? Most of our driving school graduates are very, very good. Better than most of the drivers we hire off of the street.

    I have seen 319-xxxx trailer with Conway stickers. I think any blank trailer with 311 313 or 319 were just refab and were waiting in stickers when Xpo bought us. I think the 321-xxxx number were started so Xpo know what trailers were bought after they bought the company

    I saying that the school waste time on the company related items instead of teaching basic driving skills. Then they get there license and after training do nothing but drive a folklift of 8hrs a day and never see a truck. I talk to a guy from FedEx and ask about the TT school he told me that when they graduate and get there license FedEx sticks them in the jockey truck for awhile before even sending then on the street.
    I worded it wrong and I sorry I just bashing my local school instructors.

    And then they wonder why so many of the "school boys" don't survive long. Good grief.
    The reality is that some companies take safety and training VERY serious, and other......it's just something that they have to do for C.Y.A.

    It's not ignorant if it's factual.

    Unless I missed it, he didn't say any such thing. He was speaking of one single graduate. You are the one that implied that he meant ALL of them.

    You are probably right.......at least I hope so. Otherwise, why even put them through training?

    We had a dock worker about half way through the school a couple years ago say one night during a rain storm, "you guys have to drive in this?" I said "yeah, why?" That was his last night! True story.

    The word "almost" proves my point. They are not ALL great drivers.
    That's great that your terminal has an excellent success rate, but I can guarantee you that is not the case at every terminal.

    Is it normal for the glad hands and the light socket to be on the passenger side like they are in the photo of the new pup?
