We have been swaping empties on our bids. I guess as long as the motel bill is down it's okay. lol

Mildew, you know what comes next after too many empty or light trailers on meet+ turn runs?
Yea, runs cut, then extraboard, then sitting at home, then pissed off drivers, then layoffs.
I think that sums it up unless I forgot something

gonna be a interesting bid this year, with the volumes on the trailers down now already, wouldn't the tendency be, to cut some runs ??? Then in the spring when things pick back up, total chaos, by adding runs, then rebidding and bumping process begins. Could be a turbulant couple of months for some, good luck to all, in that at least we all have some form of run, to keep providing for our families.

That is both good news and bad news depending on how many runs get cut and where you fall on the linehaul list. Priciate the info
