    i was hoping ups, but it seems they are poised to get abf if they get out of the multi-pension deal.

    dhl would only be left with estes odl or some combination of other companies

    The ABF buyout was nothing but a rumor, the article that presented this theory used a hyperthetical too show that UPS will also have to make another buyout for the simple fact that although O being a big company, is not as big in coverage and size like the competition ( fedex,YRC). In the LTL market.

    Because of this hyperthetical, people automatically assumed UPS was buying ABF. UPS may not buy anyone and expand on what they have. Time will tell.

    Not going to happen...would not be no need for either company...both are max out with freight, both have terminals in each city and state...both serve same customers...both are making big money...no reason...it is just a rumor...nobody shares nor sells a golden egg..

    Yes I agree , my main point is , the three I mentioned produced golden eggs,
    exceptionally big ones when sold, so in essence, the statement shifter made held no water.

    think about it!

    think about it, why does anyone buy anything?
    like - old cars, stocks, bonds, land, insurance, old coins, stamps, antiques (spelling), etc.

    here you go!

    when the value is so much greater than the purchace price, it becomes very temping to sell
    and create a golden egg for retirement years and the future of ones family.

    af - sold
    viking - sold
    watkins - sold
    many company's OD has bought in last 3-4 years - again sold
    swift - sold
    central - sold

    point is OD is on a big growth spurt buy up the competitors. maxed out on freight? this only means buy them and grow really fast!!!!!!!
