    Default is your freight down?

    our freight has fell off so bad that they have put 2 men on L/O. some of the problems is line haul not running loads. Nashville (422) held a trailer that had freight due on the 6th still sitting on their yard. over the weekend they blow us out and on Friday they try to run everything they got expecting it to get delivered. I know it is the time of the year for it to slow down but it seem it has really slowed down!

    Here in Birmingham it's been slow but they've gotten guys to use cc days and then work guys overtime to get everything delivered, just last night we didn't get a long box out of 402 because there board was exhausted

    615 freight is down inbound wise out bound freight is kickin ass. Management trying to cut hours with 10 hr bids but can't cover the freight when those guyz are off. Plus the fact they're holding the peddle guyz for the late freight getting to us from the breaks. Not getting to my first stop till after 11am. By the time I mty out its after 3pm and finish picking up 6:30. Bump the dock at 7-7:30 but the ten hr bid are guyz not in a hurry to get back so they can get their 10 hrs in. Which brings us back to where we were in the first place..... O/T:hmmmm

    So why the ten hr bids then, guyz won't come in on their off days when they need the help and they want to keep us out on the street 12-13 hrs to p/u freight. Can't get anyone to work for us cause starting out @ 85% with a 15% deduction (with that is really 70%) they say to YRC "H-E double hockey sticks noo" I love it love it
