    They gave back the target dedicated from Albany or and I've heard heartland is prepared to give back the home Depot account in Salem Or as well...I just can't understand how heart land can be so dumb...why the hell buy a pacific nw Co out and then ditch all their accounts up there....talk about a Co run by fools...at least that's how I perceive it..

    I'll bet that the SoCal stuff is more lucrative and that's what they wanted. They probably don't want the winery loads. Lessors is starting to pick up on winery stuff now.

    There's something about GTI they wanted and eventually we will all see what it is. They don't want reefers, they don't want chains, they don't want the APU's, they don't want some accounts...

    That's what happens with mergers. I went through two airline mergers and the only thing that saved one of them was the union, ALPA. Trucking has none, so what the executives want, they get, sooner or later.

    The one constant in all of this is General Mills...Gti handled logistics for them on the west coast and Heartland did on the East coast...

    So the OP lasted less then 2 months with Gordon and is now working for Western Express? Talk about out of the fire and into the flames.

    May or may not be what you are looking for, but check out Prime dedicated at the Olney, IL Wal Mart DC. St. Louis is a great location to live for that account.
