    Default Dear ABF Brothers,

    I have hear that ABF will drop a customer if the rate they are paying doesn't keep ABF in the black, on an account by account basis.
    Is this true
    I can see positives and negatives with this; just trying to confirm if this is a pantload, or if it's true.

    I'm not knocking this by any means, it obviously works better than YRC's business plan.

    It was true before the recession , but with all the cut throat discounting that is going on, I doubt if it is still true today.

    FedEx's 90 for 90 is hurting us big time.

    I asked our terminal mgr/salesman about the 90/90 deal that Fed Ex was doing and he said he hasn't ran across anything like this from any of our customers here in Iowa, however our O/B sure seems to be down.

    We used to have accounts where they had premium skid freight, and odd shaped/handstack spit freight, and the arrangement was "if you want our gravy freight, you'll also take our spit freight."
    We no longer do this and now I bet they're sorry they dropped it.
