    I noticed this week that Dayton Freight was moving into a old vacant terminal in Calhoun GA. The terminal is about 30 to 40 doors and has been vacant for a long time. The terminal is about 45 miles south of Chattanooga TN. And 70 miles from downtown Atlanta GA. It is located on I-75 around the 312 mile marker on the south bound side.

    Yep, that's the new "Dalton" terminal. I'm pretty sure they are operational at this point.

    Anyone have any idea if they’re going to move down farther, like into Atlanta?

    I thought you moved on to car hauling? Are you thinking about going back to LTL?

    Never hurts to hedge your bets, especially if you can slide into a new location top of the board day one...

    Your guess is as good as mine. I haven't heard anything. I would think that would open up a huge can of worms, but maybe they will be ready for that sort of thing. One thing I've noticed is that they always mention customer demand when they talk about their reasons for expansion. If enough customers ask if we're expanding into Atlanta, they'll start to consider it. For all I know, they might already be considering it.

    Considering present company, I'm surprised nobody has asked Song if he has converted his trailer to deliver a fleet of zero turns for your side hustle lawn business...

    It’s actually a pretty lucrative side hustle, just don’t tell my boss...
