    well, that makes more sense. Mine would have picked up and delivered on time with no problem at all. But, hey, maybe we just don't see the big picture

    Even more so, when do you complete the relay task and pick it back up on the Qualcomm.

    I just heard today from a company driver that showed me a qc message from his dbl that we lost the TSC accounts because of so many service failures. Also listed on accounts we are losing was Pepsi, conagra, target, quaker, and now I can't remember the others. There was 8 total and they were big accounts.

    Now from another source not here at schnieder, he was picking up loads the past few days at p&g in Ohio and Indiana area and has seen all of the Schnieder trailers empty and grouped together off by them selves instead of the usual mixed among the other carrier trailers. At both locations he saw schnieder drivers coming in bt to grab the empties. Not sure what that means but that sure sounds like we are lost some p&g accounts as well.

    No they are not. I was going over my numbers yesterday and have had an average of $.07/mile decrease in revenue each month since November and an huge increase in miles just to achieve my revenue goals each month. I didn't sign up to drive 13,000-15,000 miles a month, that's company miles!

    I gave up in the schnieder fuel discounts and just use nastc all the time. I filled up yesterday and had a $.34/gallon of the cash price compared to the $.23 I think schnieder is this week.
    Did those drivers take there sfi trucks to landstar?
    Welcome to the 52 annual hunger games! May the odds ever be in your favor, lol.

    The 2 company guys I talked to today said they have been doing more and more relays and about 1/3 of there loads are broker loads that schnieder is getting from other brokers. Something seems messed up if the largest carrier in the country is loosing major accounts like that and have to use brokers to get loads.

    With all I've posted here, I ask that some of you one around with your contacts and try to confirm some or all of this but even if a fraction of this is true that's a bad sign for schnieder.

    @redoctober83 P&G in Wilmer Texas has all the Schneider trailers grouped together there and I'm in there two or three times a week picking up Loads that's probably what they're doing

    Hope they get you a new engine. No way in hell would I want to have them slap together the quickest fix they can to get you out the door with as little cost to them as possible since it's warranty work.
     
    freightwipper and mxpx148 Thank this.

    Actually, they still are in select markets but they're being really selective. I'll confirm that on Friday if I can.

    I tried to get on in the Midwest market, which I thought they were looking for, but my recruiter sounded devastated when he couldn't add me to the list after the email came out. Could be wrong, but thought he said company wide freeze on trucks coming in for awhile.
