    We here at MDW (Midway) in Chicago are dying!!! We haul Econ but we’ve been cutting runs every night?!?!? Does anyone have insight? Are there low levels of freight every where? I’ve been canceled two nights in a row while standing right in front of my dispatcher. This is crazy!!

    It's regional, as always. Overall, freight levels are up quite a bit systemwide.

    Move to the north Dallas area.

    Sounds like he hasn’t been here long enough to know these things come and go in cycles...and the fact that he said econ explains a lot of his problems

    As for our center, we’ve added 60+ drivers (city and road) over the last two years but that’s because we’ve always ran a “lean” workforce and drivers have cried about not being able to get time off. Now that we’re “fully staffed” and it’s easy to get time off, some guys are sitting at home crying we’re slow when in fact we still have more freight than we can handle. We had 11 trailers full of mainline freight on the yard this morn at 8am that still had to be broke with 15-20 road drivers standing in dispatch waiting on bills...and I was still offered a CC day for today!!

    Ohhh Red! Must you be so obtuse?
    While I appreciate your attempt to remain optimistic, there is clearly something going on in Freight world that’s unsettling. Now whether it’s the Chinese tariffs or over hiring or a combination of both or something completely different , it’s obviously affecting families in the industry, so I say a little more compassion is in order.

    It seems the Econ hubs are slower. Maybe something to do with tariffs? The Econ freight is usually the cheaper stuff off the boat from China.

    Well apparently you arent a driver in Charlotte either or just like to lie your butt off. Drivers arent working and they are offering cc days so they can. And we have 15 to 20 drivers sitting in dispatch because the dock doesn't care about loads getting out on time anymore since they lost their bonuses. It is funny that now that the union got voted out you still think everyone believes your lies.
