Not sure when this takes effect,but the company is shrinking the number of dispatch boards from seven to four.
Imagine the US and Canada divided into quarters and you have a pretty good picture on what the new boards are they're called; Northeast which basically covers area from Indiana east and north of Tennessee some of the S/C's in this board are IND,LOU,BAL,JCY,and BOS the phone # is the same as the old Northeast and Mid Atlantic board. The Southeast board which encompasses the country from Tennessee and Alabama to the Gulf than East S/C's in this area are MFS,BHM,ATL,MRT,MIA,GBO,and RIC.the phone #for this board is the same as the former South/Tennessee board.
The Northwest board which covers the area from CHI and STL and following I-70 west to the Pacific(not including CA)some S/C in this board include KCY,MSP,MLW,DEN, SLC,PDX,and SEA,the phone # on this board will be the old Central States board.
Finally the Southwest board which will basically run from the Mississippi River west to California and South of I-70 S/C's include SPM,JKN,NOL,PAR,DAL,HOU,ABQ,
VGS,RTO,SAC,RNO and SFC phone # this is same as old west board.
 
Not sure Ump,they aren't shrinking dispatch staff,guess it might simplify dispatch one change is they now have a position called "Planner" that they didn't have before,on days my old west board dispatcher Jimmy and Jason from Central are doing that.

I heard Jimmy was moving into the "planner" position. Glad to hear no job losses. Thanks for the info.
 
Only other changes (at least from a driver's point of view) would be less board splitting on East-West runs, administratively there maybe some advantages..
 
Jimmy has been one of the people I've respected the most in Central, that guy helped me out big time when I ran team. Jason started out and turned into a good one also.

Anyone that's been here longer than a few years know how Harold is doing?

Harold was a great guy for certain, Does Dennis still get out and run now that he's a manager? He really surprised us one day by showing up in WIC a few years ago.

Thanks for the update. Didn't think the outcome was going to be good when he went to Hospice. That's sad to hear.
