    I just thought it was funny they segregated the orientations.

    Reminded me of my med training. The ex army nurse's class was all black. I only had around half a dozen in mine.

    I was in the shop waiting on a stupid pm and tires. Was backed to hell. Took like three days.

    Yeah the shop have you noticed most of the old hands are gone now, they must of not wanted to put up with the XPO radicluzations. .lol...now it's newer techs and longer waiting times. ..I'm not impressed to say the least. Now the latest is they want to use XPO Freight, I really don't have a problem with that for light duty stuff, but they better get the tires stocked and other normality issues parts. ..well see how that goes. ..Driver its all about reduction n micro managing, I call it penny wise and pound foolish in most areas. My opinion of course, but if they would only be more proactive rather than reactive it would go much further for both driver and management

    Wait time was bad enough in the shop when I was there a few years ago. Maybe they just need a few more years to get things figured out. Thinking I will check in with a few different companies. Ill just keep an eye on Logistics for now and see how it works out over the next few months to a couple years. Thank you all for your input!

    I've had a few of those freight PM's in Atlanta on oak whatever.

    Did a better job than joplin did.

    That was a few years ago. That's not really new.

    I'd rather do that and get it done. Stop by Joplin for a four tire pitstop & a vacuum.

    Thing is the dumb crew chief always does a two tire stop!

    I never get 4 tires!!

    No wonder my truck went so slow!

    Lol...remember a few years back when they started using used drive tires for trlr tires in need of replacements in between,...lol..I mean I really didn't care, but when I would thunk my tires on a newly hooked trlr....I thought I was at the rear side of my truck not the rear side of my trailer...lol..even had a DOT officer looking closely at them and he smiled me at the scale house....lol...I just smiled back
