    Will the freight industry hit a point where there are too many trucks and not enough loads? If so would you say thats in 5 years, 10 years? Thanks

    No. It will not. When the freight gets scarce the weak will perish and the strong will prosper so that the equilibrium will always remain. Ha Ha!

    when freight gets slow those who cant manage money will end up being company drivers telling everyone at orientation how they used to own a truck and how hard it is.

    Sure and those who pinned all their hopes on the rates never going will go under and we'll start the whole cycle over again.
