    don't worry , we are told all the time customers are willing to pay more because we are OD and we promise. those that live in and around corporate office ( and washington) don't live in the same world as we do. if you try to explain to them that people will cross the street to save a penny a gallon on gasoline it just don't get through. also understand managers have corporate fuel cards for their company vehicles so that would also apply to them. we have also been told that we may be able to match others prices , just call the sales rep. , and let them call the regional rep. and let them call the the corporate office for clearance. that should only take an hour or two. but seriously the OD reputation and the operating ratio are simply enough for every customer to ship with OD. RIGHT....

    All LTL's are slow right now. China must not be sending as much garbage over here like they use to.

    If every driver on earth was only allowed to work 40 hours it would not seem slow if green vested menard employees started working 70 hours a week 40% of them would be laid off

    While I get your cynicism, do you not agree its not healthy that they've been dumping their garbage products on our country for several decades thus putting us at a great disadvantage? Sure in the interim it'll suck balls, but eventually it'll bring back manufacturing to this country like it was intended to do.
