I had read we were getting John Deere back. Haven't seen any down here.
I remember them telling us for a while that Protrans was Memphis' most profitable accounts. With that being said, earlier this week we had 7 bid drivers on the dock with routes loaded and ready to go because we didn't have any trucksProtrans Memphis is unhappy with the pups and logistic bars that are used by XPO. This was a huge account for us in Memphis.
Is Protrans ever happy about anything? Just one thing whoever hauls it the CHEAPEST!Protrans Memphis is unhappy with the pups and logistic bars that are used by XPO. This was a huge account for us in Memphis.
here at npme we were told last oct. we were getting pro-trans, supoosed to hire 10+ people just for them. here what 9 months later still no pro-trans..they told us big dollar account!!! think you guys were told big loser account..now we got yrc clowns as npme president and vp, so now there big thing is "CHANGE OF OPERATIONS", that sounds familier if your a yrc guy , right??? were do these genious' think there going to hire all these drivers for all these changes. less than a quarter are changing terminals for what man power they say they need. and get this,our union is giving them 6 months to try this change, and if they are wrong about it it all changes back. so you get to up- route your life a bit , to maybe do it again 6 months later, if these clowns didn't get it right. . ok I'm done here on your site, be safe Holland , KEEP ON TRUCKN'.
Do you ever see OD or Sefl trailers with that freight loaded on them? If it ain't a moneymaker it's a bonus breaker for mngmntI'm thinking that the ProTrans freight can't be that profitable. It's pretty simple, if you have more companies with their hand in the cookie jar, there is less profit to go around.
Sure, they might put freight on your trailer, but if it isn't profitable, is it worth hauling? I'd say no.
That's why so many owner operators don't make money, they want a back haul toward home, and are willing to just put freight on their trailer to get back home......regardless of profit margin. So when there is enough of them doing it, crisscrossing the country, the shippers are winning, and getting all of their freight moved at a discount (back haul) price.
And everyone hauling this third party freight, and giving them huge discounts just to fill their trailers is no different.
Yep, trailers are cubed out, but very little profit on a lot of it. I would pass on freight when other companies have their hand in the cookie jar.
No. I haven't personally. An OD or SEFL driver would have to confirm whether they haul ProTrans or not.Do you ever see OD or Sefl trailers with that freight loaded on them? If it ain't a moneymaker it's a bonus breaker for mngmnt
With YRC, that would be more like a quarter....YRC is like a kid with a dollar in his pocket.
