    If they were all 4x4 pallets it’d be that simple, but as I’m sure you know not all freight is created equal.

    I'll have you know that our dockhands would never, EVER dream of doing something like...

    ...mmf...mmf...

    Exactly. It's loading the "garbage freight" that scares me about outbound dock and hub work. I like to say that I'm an expert at loading 48"X40" 4 foot high pallets. All that other stuff, not so much!

    Why are contractors pulling DF trailers? I saw one on Friday.

    Maybe is cheaper to pay a contractor. I know Averitt gives their freight to their contractors(landstar) than averitt drivers.

    Most LTL have contractors pulling seems like. I’ve traded trailers with a Schneider team a few weeks ago.

    We had 3-4 landstar O/O’s pulling sets out of the hub I turn every night until this mess started then Saia said goodbye to them.

    Not sure if you see them in your neck of the woods, but there was a Varna trucking with one of our sets in PHX terminal last week, seemed like they went away for awhile but now they are back.

    I haven’t seen them here in the northeast. I’m sure the O/O’s will be rolling again once things get back to normal.
