    Driving west on I-10 yesterday through Goodyear AZ and observed a Swift yanking a Werner trailer.

    Anyone know what gives?

    So is the Big Blue Screw gonna be under the same umbrella?

    SWK Enterprise.

    Swift
    Werner
    Knight

    Gotta admit, sounds professional to the ear, and would look good on stationary, but in real life, these 3 companies are still nothing but hiring a warm body with a pulse.

    And sometimes it seems that a pulse is optional on some of these “drivers”

    They'll pull each other's trailers on dedicated accounts like Home Depot, Lowe's and the dollar stores.

    For a few months the company I drove for, reefer division, got a lot of new business, and Swift helped us out. You'd see YRC trucks pulling Swift dry vans and Swift trucks pulling YRC reefer trailers.

    A lot of companies pull other companies trailers, it isn't just the megas.

    There is sort of an inter-operability among the carriers, a bunch have agreements in place to help out with capacity, not at a discount either.
     
    Lepton1 and D.Tibbitt Thank this.
