    It says that Walmart has changed their focus and is now starting to rely on their own private fleet drivers instead of using outside carriers. In other words; after the disaster with the changes Walmart tried to make last year with their Fleet Drivers; they have decided to reverse course and reinvest in them again!

    Ah, what do you know:rolleyes: I trust the trolls that spew their great knowledge.

    They were right about your company going out of business 2 years ago, oh wait, nevermind. But they were right about the private fleet selling out to swift last year, oh wait wrong again. Hmm maybe you cant believe everything you read on this internet thing. Dang you al gore :mad:

    I refreshed the page a few times and it wound up letting me read it for free. It also says they are piloting hauling their own containers from the rail yards to cut down on that third party as well

    Friend of mine that just quit told me before he left that he’d heard they’re cutting even more 5 day spots.

    Immediately after a realignment he’d heard this.

    From our janitor.

    So it’s gotta be true.
     
    MilkyJay and mike3fan Thank this.

    No t a 180 though...driver pay is going to be cut in small increments so as to not cause a big incident. Before summer there will be another round of layoffs in the dispatch offices as drivers start carrying the load that they did for us. Dwell time is about to become a priority according to the grass roots meetings, so, look for that to hit us.
