    Gotta feeling that's gonna be hush hush until all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed.

    I just hope enhancing shareholder value doesn't mean screwing over the employees in the process.

    "Enhancing Shareholder Value"-that's what's been happening since 1999. Looking good to the market, that's what matters today to leadership of public companies. Meanwhile, all the little things that made a company great are delayed, pushed aside, or eliminated, along with employee morale. Eventually, the whole thing collapses into itself.

    Saia has been selling assets (such as Jevic). Doesn't seem they'd likely be buying anyone.

    Selling Assets

    Yep,
    I'd like to know what assets have been sold. Any separation from Jevic takes place at the SCS level. Otherwise we are still in the game together.

    I heard SAIA was looking for a northeast carrier last summer. These things take time.

    I guess it was actually SCS lookingto acquire someone.

    Hey studly...If you are referring to my poat I corrected myself. It was SCS that was snooping around the northeast, not SAIA.

    If you were not referring to me then have a nice day. :smilie_132:
