    Agreed. So, what do you think is better, delivering the freight quicker with no fee paid=more stops per hour or tying up a 48-53 with fewer stops per hour.

    I'd be willing to send them my portfolio of Central pictures... Might give them a glimpse of what Central is REALLY like. ;-)

    Agreed, yellow is more of a spring dressing fashion, I always pictured you as more of a fall . . . . browns or reds. Slimming colors.

    Accounts like Sally are easy to get rid of. Pull up and make it your stop for the day, the company will dump that pig hard when the contract runs out. My former girlfriend managed one of those stores. First Yellow (pre YRC days) had it then a string of other two bit outfits had it. I don't know if Yellow subbed it out or if someone else got the contract but those other companies were horrible. I always told her that was a garbage account and if ABF took it on it would be their biggest mistake in a long time. I believe inside delivery stacked up the walls is part of the deal.
