    Maybe they could dovetail in ahead of all us veterans. After all that'd be fair right? Sorry, and here I thought I was over it lol

    I am guessing Estes wants to buy FedEx so they can acquire the movie rights to Big Dave's hat....

    No fedex logos on ground trucks. ....all ready being implemented. .. contractors name only.... contracted to fedex

    Some how or another a consolidation of all fedex companies. ... just my opinion of course.

    Of course it is, that's 2 months after the buyout of Old Dominion is completed.

    That's not it. After the buy out, FedEx will only keep the OD drivers with Mastio Awards.....what is that, like 3??? Three ain't gonna screw up bids....

    I could care less about the other OD drivers cuz I know my job is safe. I'd just have to start showing up all them FedEx drivers.

    First thing Fedex is going to want to do after buying OD is replace all the OD line drivers with Schneider contract power. OD drivers speed, text and sleep while driving. You don't want that destroying the FedEx brand.

    Not the ones I see..... they are one of the professional drivers left. Not sure about the city guys. ... been a few years since I have been in the city. .... what I do remember is that the city guys were normally sleeping out behind the buildings

    Line guys usually roll over the trucks so the freight doesn't make it to the terminal so what else are we suppose to do? Most OD line drivers, text while drive, talk on cell phones while against company policy while driving, swerve all over the road and sleep while driving. You see an OD truck, make sure you get around it quick. We only hire guys out of CDL school and docks these days.

    I hired on long before OD lowered their standards. In the 2000's you needed 2 years before OD would even look at you.

    I'll put in a good word for you. If you don't get to stay let me know and I'll put a stop to this buyout with 2 phone calls.

    Song would be a fantastic addition after the buyout. The guy is nothing but a real truck driver. When the going got tough, he even went and did city for 6 months without complaining. Not a line driver in the world could go back to the man's side of driving.
