    I guess I didn't think XPO was big enough to have that kind of money. Shows what I know!

    3 billion is quite a chunk of change.......no changes to report as of our meeting this morning, but does anyone actually expect a corporation to lay out its plan??

    More freight lanes and tonnage......business as usual....(for now??)

    Can't see how it'll be business as usual when the entire Con-Way management team will be shown the door (Stotlar will stay on for a few month as a "consultant")
