    Eight or so tractors in the Northboro yard hooked up to tankers. Cascadias and Internationals. All ten speeds. Used equipment from Ryder. Are these because the "new" tractors aren't here yet?

    Hey shoe. The pic did not come thru.

    Best guess is the contract started and yes,new rides are not here. Gotta have work for the new hires

    A lot of people from the formerly known as "Pyle transport" are making the switch. I've heard people with tanker experience were being contacted by safety to make the switch first and foremost.

    I hope these are separate purchases. We need all the twins we can get for the LTL and linehaul ops

    Not gonna debate the point. More personal preference. Guess I had such negative experience with the Volvo sleeper trucks at Jevic that tainted me
    Hell,I won't even consider a Volvo car!!
    Yes,I know separate companys
