This also makes us the second largest LTL carrier in North America.
The rest of you can suck it.
Ask #1 how they're liking their jobs!!!

Just remember, bigger is not always better!!!! The arrogant leadership hopefully will be gone and it will take a while for that mindset to go also. Be humble in everything you are and do.

Sarcasm guys, sarcasm!
I'm with upnorth on this, not necessarily worried about being 2nd largest in North America, but glad the imbeciles that ran our company into the dirt are gone. I'm hoping for a definite and clear agenda from them for growth. We'll see.
Its done. Down with the old and bring on the new. What is the ETA on our board getting rebranded like our equipment?
Roadway used to be the largest carrier until they got bought out, we all can see how that worked out.
I think its fitting that the vast majority of the posts by drivers that are going to be affected by this, those of us that actually work for XPO LTL are positive. We are by and large hopeful and looking forward to change. Almost all the negativity is coming from outsiders, folks that want to rain on our parade, folks that I believe deep down hope this thing is a disaster. They want to see that fiery crash right before the finish line. I can't wait until we become the industry leader and the company where drivers want to be. What will all the haters say then?
You have never got sarcasm since you have posted here joe.
I talked with Jeff. It's going to stay as is. Both names are on the equipment. If and when it changes to just xpo, we will change it then.
XPO LTL is what we are going be. The trailers will all say XPO Logistics but internally we will be divided up. LTL, TL etc.
Also , for all of us that email with those who have company email addresses - make sure to update your contacts to reflect the new email addresses.
I heard that sweet story once before, but you forgot to say " all you have to do Dorothy is click your heels together and you can go home". I have to congratulate you folks as a whole for the positive way you have handled this. However, those such as myself who have been through 2 buyouts in 38 years, Thurston and Yellow, know that change rarely is smooth or without lots of pain and loss,such as watching friends go home without jobs. Good Luck
P.S.- Just wish you had a more classy moderator to represent you as a whole than up-someone's-north
I say this joyfully. FORGET CON-WAY !
As empowering as that is. I do fear the unknown as much as anyone else.
So now I hope for the best. Because we just got bought by a company much bigger than us on the precipice of a down turn in the economy with winter nearly here. Should make for some fantastic sledding.
Does anyone know what the heck a XPO is ? Or if it means something ?
We did not get bought by another trucking company. That is the difference between the buyouts you went through and what we are going through now. We were bought by a company that wants to have its own equipment and its own drivers to handle the large volumes of freight that they manage. That on top of the large volumes we already handle means no layoffs for drivers and dock workers. It means steady work right through the winter. It means we will be hiring in case you know someone looking for work.
Not really sure what it literally stands for but I am pretty sure it means get ready to run some miles driver because the freight is getting ready to flow into the system. I have already seen containers up to the dock getting unloaded.
In my 12 years with this company I have NEVER seen a container getting broke. Intermodal stuff running through our system.
Your opinion ? Or can you back this up ?
