    Default YRC is back in the freight business

    At my barn we have more freight now. We are at levels like we had in the Y2K era. We are run over with freight. Look out non-union ltl carriers. We are on a roll now.

    I heard that, I was pretty excited getting recalled from layoff. But in Seattle as a percenter I was called in Sunday night inbound, and nothing since. I was working more on layoff.

    Drove past Yellow's Pittsburgh ( Lawrenceville ) terminal last night and it seemed more crowded than usual. I hope that's a good sign.

    But could this just be a very temporary thing because freight was backed up due to the confusion and now it is just starting to flow? We haven't seen any jump in freight here at abf, at least not anything I can see.

    Yellow and Roadway are now one. All freight is in one system and we are at 100% capacity now I would think.
