    terminal or hub loads a pup like a city trailer and linehaul delievers it to a secure package yard. a city driver then comes in during the day and runs p&d. these are being setup in areas that we do not have direct points to like montana, south & north dakota, upper penisula of michigan.

    Takes freight off contractors trucks.:1036316054:

    Little to no start up cost.:1036316054:

    Direct service should mean less claims...freight is moved 1 or 2 less times.:1036316054:

    Builds up the customer base.:1036316054:

    Yes this is a good idea!!

    Hello Van man and welcome to the boards, tell everyone about us and hope you have a good stay. And you are 100% correct.

    It is a good thing it speeds up freight which helps us all out, I see shipments in FL that are going to and from zone terminals, this could be more shippers using us becuase of these changes.

    I began to really think about it, as simple as it is, these zone terminals sound amazing from a business standpoint.
