    When you mentioned Panther trucks, it reminded me of something that I saw just the other night, on a side road, in Beaumont, Texas. A Panther box truck was backed up to a Panther long trailer and freight was being moved between the two with a pallet jack. It seemed odd but maybe its normal. Anyway, good luck to you guys.

    That might have been their attempt at a ‘final mile’ delivery.

    To tell you the truth, Brother,.......I don't know for sure.

    I thought that was the reason the Chicago Locals were having a strike vote......They are (were) separate from the ABF NMFA, and negotiate their "white paper" contracts concurrently but separately.

    I was hoping a Chicagoland driver would enlighten us.

    a "NO" vote will give ArcBest more time to invest in the other divisions that will eliminate the need for ABF Freight in the future...so, now or never! Glad to see the YES votes! Can't wait!

    The 98% level is the residual anger left over from being lied to about YRC buying us out in the middle of contract talks last time........

    Not that ArcBest upper management would admit that..........

    Have you considered putting this on a T-shirt?
