    A couple guys I've talked to here that worked there say CT treats their drivers like crap.

    It is the inborn nature of some men to lie, and from those men one can only expect lies. It is in their nature for they cannot stop.

    Think positive sometimes change is a good thing but always thinking negative all the time now that's a bad way to live life. Over time we shall see what happens there one thing for sure without change and Vitran would have never made it!:Violin:

    what has change made Vitran the only thing I see is broke losing money and now sold to a company that will choose a few to come along. positive thinking is always good but reality always wins

    Wow same words I heard when FedEx bought AF. The major thing we were told is the NAME would not change but within a year the name changed. Feel sorry for all involved in Keylon's mess and hope for the best. If there is anywhere else to go, I would. You will be better off in the end. The employees that are at Central now will be number one. You will be told different but first hand I saw it happen when the Watkins drivers came over to Fedex.

    I worked for PJAX back in the mid 1990's and I was surprised at how badly it seemed to be mismanaged at times (especially in comparison to Pitt Ohio). How they lasted long enough to go into Vitran is impressive in and of itself. Sounds like things got even worse since Vitran has had them.

    PJAX had some really nice tractors (I was there when the first Mack CH models came in) but they also had some horrible beat up old Mack R & U models. Ouch.

    I know it was a family owned business. The one son (I think he was a son) named Jeff was a really good guy to work for. My question - anybody know why the owners at PJAX sold out?

    What are you talking about? When National ( Watkins) and Freight merged the National drivers dovetailed in.

    Everything will be just fine, You'll just need to get used to driving faded yellow, junk tractors and get used to seeing Central trailers being pulled by Blue and White tractors...

    Best of luck to you folks, I'm sure the uncertainty is killing you. Hope you all make out better.
    The shippers ship with the carrier(s) they want, the company doesn't own the freight and most of it will dissipate.
