    Sad to see. However, on the other hand, Celadon gains a Denver terminal and more equipment that they will replace with their own. I wonder who's next on Celadons list of trucking companies to buy???

    No way...
    Got a Source?
    Were you still working there?




    Didn't have much of a Yard.
    Really just used the FROW Warehouse, right of 70 & Toll Road. (Aurora).

    Celadon bought Houg a while back. Can't find a good link.

    There is no terminal in Denver for Celedon to gain. Sorry to hear this. Now I know why Scott didnt return my email a week or so ago.

    Good luck to all of you guys!!

    i Dunno either seemed like everything was fine.

    The only other thing that has happened recently was FRE selling off all the White Coronados to someone in Georgia but Scott saying he did it
    to keep the driver pool around 100 drivers or so

    So yeah i am in total shock also.
