    We sold quality and are now focusing on our core company drivers and not very many lease operators anymore...

    Still doing our reorganization and all looks pretty good... they just invested 5 million$ into upping driver pay and vacation packages and are really trying to retain good drivers by keeping us busy. I ain’t goin anywhere.... lol

    @laaylor don't see or hear of any companies giving drivers a pay raise since the tax incentive went into affect it's nice to see there reconstructing there self iminge once again

    I have no idea: I’m sorry; I’m just a company driver with a dedicated route.. I really don’t know anything about that.. :(

    Is Celadon pretty much dedicated-only at this point?

    Was at the main terminal the other day and it seems about 70% of the office staff has been let go. Never seen so many empty cubicles in a company before.

    Not sure if they are prepping to go under or reshuffling and getting their act together, but I think they realized there is more money in brokering than in trucking.

    Anywho, just gotta be on my tippy toes and be ready to jump ship if they do go under.
