    So I was going to ask is will county was still working arsenal. I hadn't seen them out there in over 3 weeks and before I got astound to actually typing this, I saw 3 with trucks pulled over, so never mind.

    How's cans treating everyone? Rates still going up? Tanker rates finally leveled off or cooled just a little on routes.

    Well, the scale is finally open at Elwood, they seem to open it on weekdays now. The rails seem as inefficient as ever.....they’ve done all kinds of efficiency changes that have stabilized the in/ out time to about 2 hrs......(lol...yeah, I know...)....

    Our freight has been steady .....settlements have been steady at $3200-3800 gross per 5 day week.....

    When you pull a container out of the rail yard how can they give you a weight ticket right away knowing full well that you haven't even had a chance to get to a weight scale? And if the container is overweight, then how in the world are you going to get it to scale?

    They don’t care, it’s all about revenue.
