    Lately, we have been doing some really long runs out of 6097.

    Helping out Pageland, Gordonsville, Washington Courthouse, Olney, Gas City, and maybe some others.

    We are sometimes running nearly 400 miles to get to our first store.

    Anyone know what's going on?

    Dispensing/ shifting of dedicated. I think swift runs freight out of olney... not sure though. But the rest you mentioned are having challenging times adjusting to a new dedicated carrier. I heard Schneider was getting the boot from wintersville soon too

    I heard that also. Courthouse is a mess, trying to make the switch to all private fleet drivers.

    Prime, swift, Werner. All the same. All fighting for the race to the bottom of the barrel. Hopefully their drivers don't have to live in their trucks to make ends meet.

    I have been following my store specifically for certain items pending.

    Inventory of the store's lists do not match the products not put up at the floor. For example one office chair. floor display is up. Asked manager where is a box of that should I pay and take home. Manager says two in inventory already on floor.

    A careful search of the entire store shows the two is a fantasy, a error. A incorrect.

    Then Im told I can go online and have the purchased chair shipped to my store from any DC in range within 48 hours and ready for me to take home. Otherwise it's a 3 week wait for more boxes of that chair to arrive on the 14th of next month (*July) to be restocked.

    If you already have chairs in the DC somehwere in the USA and have a team deliver that in a trailer to my store within 48 hours, but you cannot stock anything for 3 weeks until July 14th.

    There is a problem here. Using a simple office chair as a example.

    Pray tell me in DC land ranging from Arkansas around as far as Waco as far as say Joliet or perhaps as far as Pauls Valley DC or even far enough to London KY DC etc where is there a Office Chair for little old me?

    Should I have to bypass the entire walmart temple of retail and failed inventory distribution to call Serta factory and have that chair custombuilt and delivered by Mr Brown to my house?
