    Is there any new barns being built or bought this year? Are there any barns being upgraded/remodeled? Any territory expansion/zones? How about tractors-road or city, straight trucks, trailers etc. Or are we still watching everyone else buy and build and expand around us?

    Rumors have been that there's a new building going up in Huntersville NC to replace both Charlotte and Gaffney.

    We just expanded the terminal and the lot in San Antonio Tx SNT. The parking lot for the van parking has been expanded twice and it's still not big enough. The terminal is in a bad spot off the feeder road to where the exit ramp is cause there have been alot of accident in front of the place. All that money they wasted expanding came out to the same cost as to building a new one. Need a terminal in Corpus Christi cause all the freight we giving to the contractor to service area is outlandish smh. Houston and Dallas suppose to be expanded also.

    We got a couple of interline carriers in New England. Northern Maine and NH, Northeast VT, Southern VT are served by BSP. We give them many trailers a day. Cape Cod MA, gets served by Cape Cod Express and they too get plenty of freight. Every major carrier serving NE handle the whole region. This company doesn't seem to want to commit and invest in this division. Everybody else does circles around us. Meanwhile the Union looks the other way.

    We got 2 carriers in San Antonio that deliver parts of Texas for us that could use a terminal. One of the carrier gets enough freight for at least 5 routes. Its just ridiculous.

    Well, we Have been getting new paint outside and well as inside---the restrooms specifically. And a new floor for tHe driver's area. Don't want to say wHich terminal for privacy reasons but we're in tHe "network" of some major Hubs.

    Most straigHt trucks are being replaced with FL business class with automatics.
