At least the pat on the butt or the kiss on the cheek while they're bending you over makes it less unpleasant, and the holiday bonus of KY made things slide a little easier...but, no reach around...that was against company policy
Like it was mentioned, that was a shared trailer pool deal. When Steve and Judy split with Arnold and started the Raven they run today,(there was a Raven associated with their original company Silver Eagle, but when Arnold Logistics went from a group of independent companies to a rebranded single company called Arnold Transportation, they left). They had limited resources and needed to have a specific number of trailers available in order to meet P&G's contract requirements...plus they had their brokers license and would broker the loads outside their normal freight lanes to Heartland for a nominal broker fee and use of Heartland's equipment. The problem was, sometimes a load going out west was loaded on a Raven trailer, and was a drop and hook, so getting it back east and keeping track of where their trailers were was a logistics nightmare. I believe that all ended when the recession hit and everybody was scrambling for any freight they could get.
