    There's enough of the pie to go around. As long as we provide excellent service and get the pricing right we will do just fine.

    I would agree but it seems a lot of shippers are now just shopping price through unishippers and third party brokers.
    I get the feeling SAIA might be looking more at the stuff that goes from PA into their coverage area not so much the local stuff

    with these high level NP people jumping ship, they must know more than we do about future plans. Some of them have 30 or more years with the company and moving on from. thats tough to give up on a whim.

    I agree but maybe they just had enough of YRC

    SAIA's pricing with brokers are unbeatable ... Along with excellent service and a culture that's customer service oriented SAIA should make a big splash up north. It won't take the customers long to understand that SAIA is much like Old Dominion. One of the best in the business.

    it was one thing being owned by YRC, we were a throttled back npme, but now being run by these two clowns in charge, I don't know how any npme people management can stand to come to work every day. course that's what I'm sure they want, all old npme people to quit. slowly it seems there are quitting. , one thing for sure, anyone with npme experience probably has no hard time getting hired else where.

    The OLD SCHOOL mentality that was always a plus for older supervisors is now a minus. Moving freight is not the first priority at New Penn. Its a number game. You are judged by 20 different facts every night and if do 19 good and 1 bad you get reamed out. Nobody wants to hear that day after day. No loyalty anymore.
