    So does this mean that the new sign in my barn that say we deliver 99% of all the zip codes is now a lie.

    Another rumor! Has anyone heard this one? I don't understand it but it does reduce costs for now.

    At my barn we have assigned pallet jacks. My jack works well except it needs a repair in the main axle. I requested the maintenance, now I hear pallet jack maintenance has been discontinued because it's to expensive. Within the rumor, no new purchases.

    I cannot get an official answer to my question, just wondering if anyone else has heard.

    Not necessarily, we're told surrounding terminals will add to their areas just like it happen when XPO closed 7 terminals.

    If it ain't making money XPO don't want that freight. Or they have arranged for a contract carrier to interline the area.

    You think a few zones might knock XPO down to 98% ? It could.

    He's a company man. Been here since he started in college. Dockworker , FOS , account manager , auditor , FOM , TM. As far as I know , this is really the only company he's ever worked for. Good luck to those in XCN. New TM will do like he's told and not deviate from his marching orders. EBITDA.

    But we have seen others with the same impressive pedigrees get dismissed after hitting a certain ceiling.

    I think this one is a good fit. I've worked around him at a few terminals and with him being in diff levels of management.

    Anyone know any ex employees that are vested into The pension . One ex employee I know told me xpo sent him notice of a buyout for his pension. I can not verify this until he checks the letter again and gets back to me. Again I am not saying this is a fact until I see the letter. Can anyone verify this in the meantime.

    I got a card from the Benefits Office to tell me to expect a package from them on a one time buy out offer the other day. I'm guessing that it will be a low ball offer , not worth taking. I don't know that but I can't help but think that.

    So they are offering a buyout for ex employees? If that's the case do you think they'll try to do the same with current employees?

    I received a card from the Benefits Office, It appears that I am going to have a choice on taking a lump sum payment or drawing a monthly payment . My former CO worker's have not received anything so far. This must be a new option ??? They probably won't offer to current employee's because there would be a mass Exodus!!! Lol
