    No, you sir, TripleSix, are the industry standard. Not the other LTL guys. YOU, TripleSix. I thank you for gracing us with your presence and invaluable knowledge during these trying times.

    What you have there is the very rare GOOD linehaul driver. He likely has a few million safe miles to his credit.


    Most linehaul guys that I encounter on a regular basis are frankly, lazy and dumb.

    If OTR drivers are ever forced to take jobs as peddle hands, I guarantee most will be in for quite a shock at a terminal that’s actually run like it’s supposed to be.

    Also known as “city drivers”. They’re the ones that do the pickups and deliveries.
