    True, might be interesting, wonder if Mr. Bezos has bought an interest in JB, there were rumors he wanted a trucking company, which if that's the case, all these last/final mile places that rely on JB and the Home Depot's and such that subcontract them could be in for a rude awakening when Amazon come's calling

    I didn’t get detention. But my company doesn’t pay detention unless it can wring it out of the broker. As I said this was a brokered backhaul, and I don’t normally do Amazon loads or I would quit if I regularly had to put up with that.

    I've seen some stories lately about a worldwide container shortage. I wonder if they're thinking about leasing some out.

    I was on FBook today and JB had an ad on there for drivers. Said most would be home everyday or weekly. JB has been pretty quiet the last few years. In the 90s before they closed their driver schools and raised the pay for experienced drivers, they were joked about more than Swift is now. Meanwhile their stock prices keep going up.
