    What I can say is XLX will cover about half of the XMH territory and all of XHH. It appears, although I do not know for sure that XHC will cover the other half of XMH and all of
    XPK. Gonna be very hard to do for both XLX and XHC. EBTIDA!!

    One worker is transferring to XLX and the rest received severance! Such a shame! To my knowledge. If anyone has other info, please input!

    You no I was just thinking,while on hold the other day I could swear I heard them talking or advertising how we move your freight damage free and on our safe stack. Gots me thinking they said about 43 percent of our freight was hauled on brokers.any body got any numbers on that? If so that's a lot of freight

    Just curious,R. But did I read the other day zone drivers with you guys are like just a guy dropping his outbound,and picking up his inbound in a parking lot? No actual terminal?

    Yes pretty much. A linehaul driver drops trailers in a drop yard and city driver delivers it

    Rdwy did that too,like 30 years ago. Called them sub stations,doing like you say,linehaul leaving inbound load and taking outbound back. The only thing was most of the time,the freight was not loaded in a guided order for easier delivery,and the driver did a lot of back tracking.

    Three in KY, where were the others? I did not know about them although it doesn't surprise me. The closures in KY did not surprise me either because they have been very slow for some time now.

    What caused them to be slow?

    Lack of account executive attention to customers and potential customers?

    Poor service from zone DSRs?

    Competition from other carriers? / XPO pricing?

    A combination of all these?....

    I would be shocked to find out the number was that low. Give it time. It will get much larger.

    You will have to ask your TM, who's clearly not interested in communication. It's a corporate PowerPoint, messages from sales, linehaul, and several others. Also information that's specific to the terminal and region.
