    Yeah, I have seen a couple of them about a month ago when I was loading at AK Steel in Middletown, OH. At first I thought that they were ours haha! I talked to one of them and he said that they get that all the time LOL. He seemed content with ELS from what I gathered. I don't know much more than that tho sorry.

    Its an old sign. They started as an all owner operator company. But with custemor demand they expanded with L/P and company trucks. Actually gives more options to the owner ops. They do haul the OD freight from many different steel companies so the pay is better than most.
