    So it'll now be Arnold/USX/Link America/Total and a draft pick to be named later?

    And now you all fall under the US Xpress banner. Which is good because it means being more financially stable, newer equipment. Bad because you'll get lost in the shuffle a lot easier.

    This is still an interesting development, though. I'll be curious to see what direction LA ends up going, in a general sense.

    Unless what happens to US Xpress is the same that is happening with YRC, getting too big too fast.

    Overall financially our pay package goes up all around. We now access to full service terminals from the big 3 in the USX family.

    Basically Tennex capital who owns us purchased the remaining interest in Arnold. Drivers get grandfathered in to Arnold. Even tho we are owned by the same company, they're dropping the link.name and will operate under Arnold trans.

    As each Link truck is due for a PM service, they'll change over to Arnold decals as well. Overall I'm good with it but am disappointed as we made a lot of progress turning Link around. We had issues but we all knew each other from the.office to the drivers. (in Lakeland atleast)
