    The reason I asked is that I seen a Walmart tractor and trailer at the TDI Facility in Oxford, AL today. I was just wondering if they were about to get into training drivers.

    Who would be the difference? Most of the outside carriers dragging Wal-Mart trailers are training carriers. Neck, most of those outside drivers are first year rookies!

    It's no difference really. Inside or outside. Eh...

    I think Walmart loves the constant branding imposed on the trucking school kids having to look at it all day every day...
