    FLASHBACK..!!
    I remember when Lessors bought Pullen Bros....I entered the dispatch office and squat down to fix my Boot strings....The big Boss came into the Office all Rev.d Up telling all 5 dispatchers the "good news".....after he got done telling I stood Up...You should've seen their faces when they realized I was there........(complete silence at the office).
    Anyways, all of them received New Pick up trucks........

    So?

    Swift has acquired many other companies over the years, and then Knight did the same to Swift.
    (That was odd, but it happened.)

    And it happens all the time, for may reasons.

    I like how they always say: we like their equipment, on time delivery performance, driver retention, equipment quality....all of which is now over. The reason all of those things were good is because that smaller company was not your company...smh

    Will they update the Lessors trailers to look ugly like this?

    I remember when Lessors started, first by leasing their tractors to Marten, then they started getting trailers and started to grow on their own. The terminal in Eagan MN and also a terminal in the Boise ID area at least the end of their story did not have drivers stranded on the road.

    Saw a Lessors truck and trailer on PA Turnpike today. Trailer was untouched. Tractor had Hirschbach name along with that stupid graffiti….I’m sorry. They call it art.

    Maybe it will improve. Lessors was one of my worst decisions for a job. I know nothing of Hirschbach other than I pass them a lot in Nebraska.
