It looks like ABF in Elkhart Indiana is abandoning their warehouse and moving to the old FedEx Freight terminal in South Bend.

Isn’t that a Mobile Platform facility? Here at the Rock, we load Mobile Platforms for Elkhart.106 for 050 I think it is.
mobile platform..isn't that what the Big R had back in the day in some of the outlying areas?

4 or 5 flatbeds welded together with a tin roof and then a dilapidated house trailer (single wide) as the office...but hey, they set the standard! I guess they knew what they were doing and made plenty of $$$.oo

Can anyone post a picture of one of those facilities...?

Must not want to put the money back into freight (cash cow) and continue the losing effort with light asset? I haven’t seen a panther or ArcBest truck in months. I was at one of our good customers & they tried to use ArcBest for truckload but they never showed up…. Imagine that.
You know, now that you mention it, I have not seen a Panther truck in a few months either. And here at the Rock, we had probably 7 or 8 coming in weekly. Usually with their little vans or bob trucks.
