    Their degree? Even the modern "supply chain management" doesn't remotely cross into front line ltl supervision in a top down style publicly traded company.

    Colleges could put together an intro to ltl. Hold it outdoors in the winter up north and summer down south. Classes would be 10
    Hours long but you only get credit for 3. You have to quit your bar tending job where you make a few hundred dollars a night because classes are at night.

    Face it. It's a :shit: industry. Best you can do is work for a company that doesn't make you hate yourself.

    You think we are the only one doing this> I while back I talked to a UPS freight drive and his dispatcher sends him pickup and when the truck full that's it. He said he get what he can the rest has to wait till the next day. What most of you are missing is why B. Jacobs bought us. He said in the near future trailer floor space will be premium and someday shippers will have to pay top $. In trucking the P&L numbers are really tight and running a truck to make two pickups is not worth the expense.
    The other is the dispatcher is more worried about his numbers.

    It's like one of those COEXIST bumper stickers. The snowflakes would be so proud of you for this. Only if the tractor was UPS brown and there had been enough room on the image to have it be FedExPOD.

    And---- they never ever question the higher up"s decisions. I have been told that before. They want to make them into the kind of FOS that they want, not someone who can think for themselves.

    No idea? Just curious since there's no communication from the top.
