With all the cuttin' and pastin' going on, maybe the rest of us show read the Wikipedia article on the history of Roadway Express. Quite a good piece not only about the company but the history of the industry as well. Very interesting facts about the reason for regulation and later deregulation.
Saia has something to do with Louisiana I understand.
For starting this post with "another Freight company", I was looking at it- as another name on a trailer. As for the CF story, now probably YRC's, I didn't know the full story, and should not have given my opinion. I worked at Emery for a stint, and Conway (CCX) had something to do with it, they hauled our city freight to Dayton, OH, to the airport. CF's name was on some of our trucks, as Emery- a CF company- later named Emery- a CNF company. I now understand UPS owns them- called Menlo Logistics, I could be wrong.
Emery had a few accidents and lost their air cargo status I believe too. I can't believe UPS would need Emery for their air freight customers.
Could YRC be trying to get out of the union?
