    Micky mouse of Bismarck nd has been troubled since the 80s when they went on strike and they went from a ltl power in the upper midwest and Dakotas to a has been .
    An upshoot known as midnight express sprung up after the strike and they kinda gained ground again .
    They re established terminals in omaha , Chicago, Minneapolis, soiux falls but never got back to where they were before the strike .
    They were sold to an equity company a few years ago .
    Swift didn't get much .

    Think about if they can control the market then they can demand what ever fee's they want to transport goods.

    If they want build their network out and connect the AAA Cooper to the Midwest and the northeast, they should buy the Pitt Ohio group. Very little overlap and it would give them Midwest, Southeast and Eastern coverage.
