    Where is all the freight at XPN,,, We had 450,000 lb on the day before the end of quarter... XSG had 470,000...
    Xpn has 100 doors XSG has 32 doors WTF. Pontiac used to average well over 600,000 b4 what the hell is going on. Is it a sales issue or is it the way we support (un support) our customers.This is a hell of a good area for manufacturing ,we should be killing it...

    Nobody is "killing" it right now.. The economy is taking a step backwards. I just got done reading about BNSF furloughing 4,600 employees nationwide..mostly because of weak demand for oil and coal. CAT, CNH, John Deere...all you hear about is layoffs.

    Our freight is going up and up. The low dollar up here means there is a ton of freight moving south.

    Spoke with our district manager today. He said upper management made a mistake and fired too many account execs when the acquisition took place. We lost alot of freight because of that. He said the new brass did not understand the personal relationship needed with small customers. They are supposedly trying to fix the error, that's why you see all the recruitment posters for account execs

    Slow here too HS... but the last few days it's up a few ticks. Probably cause it's the end of the month and end of the quarter. Even managed to grab several hours of OT over the last few days. I think I'll ask for a PTO for tomorrow seeing how I've busted my chops for the last few days, plus it's Friday. If my I/b super gives me the day off tomorrow...then that will be the real test as to whether we're really slow at my barn or not.

    I got a PHD in being in the know..lol.Who really knows why these corporations do what they do.Just depends on their port folio and tax structures and other variables.Sometimes corporation will buy another company out just for the accounts and foreign certificates

    I bet it had something to do about Quebec wanting to secede.They knew the native Frenchies would someday want to leave the Canadien provinces EH!

    I like that.I think all drivers of ltl companies should take 3day weekends.Put the screws to these anti labor corrupt corporations.Anti labor meaning not friendly to the working men n women

    That treaty of 1818 was terminated in 1846 and replaced by the Oregon Treaty.Which stands to reason why they don't honor what was in the 1818 : p
